Re: Beetlebum: reaction at the time

People dismissing 13 because of its lacklustre nature is the same as Radiohead fans hating on Kid A (and everything that came afterwards) because they wanted more of The Bends. 13 is Blur's finest, most complex and most rewarding achievement. Their discography wouldn't be nearly as exciting if they...

I think if Blur had released "more of the same" in 1997 it could have brought a decline in chart fortunes, esp. given that by the later part of that year Britpop was starting to fade.
In fact I'd say one of the biggest and first bands in Britpop going in another direction helped kill the genre.

Re: Most Oasis sounding Blur song?

The Oasis b-side Underneath The Sky has a great bounce to it like Parklife. That's why it's one of my favorites.

Re: Beetlebum: reaction at the time

Being a fan since Leisure, I learned to expect changes like this. I liked it but not as much as TGE.

Re: Damon's vocals: a revelation

Notice these types of songs mostly happened without Street, and stopped when he came back on. He wouldn't put up with this nonsense.

Best album since TGE for me. Amazing what a good producer can do.

Damon's vocals: a revelation

Graham revealing that the vocals for Song 2 were a guide vocal is a revelation. It totally explains the change in vocals from 1999-2003. They went from smart well-written lyrics and sharp vocals to a lot of half spoken partly incomprehensible words. Examples: Swamp Song, Battle, Music Is My Radar, T...

Tender is similar to some stuff on the last Oasis album 'Dig out your soul'.
Yes.
