Re: "Hit" Or "Miss"?

I like it. Hit. I rediscovered Pet Sounds recently and was kind of blown away. I remember listening to it as a kid and not being very impressed, but I guess I was a stupid kid. It's such an obviously great accomplishment. Here's a different kind of accomplishment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3OD...

Re: Blur on US TV: The Tonight Show w/ Jimmy Fallon 30th Apr

I tend to think Lonesome Street and Ong Ong are a little too "Britpoppy" for US audiences. That is, they presume a familiarity with Blur's previous output, which most Americans won't have. Lonesome Street in particular gets a lot out of trading on the sounds of Blur's Britpop heyday (not that that's...

Re: NEW ALBUM: The Magic Whip (iTunes Stream Now Live)

I haven't pre-ordered or anything on the assumption that my local record store will have it, but now I'm getting worried that I assumed too much. It's not a big chain or anything, so I wonder how much new stock they get, and from where? If I don't get my hands on the album tomorrow..... :( It's tomo...

Go Out seems to get better and looser everytime they play it. I really like this performance.

Thanks for sharing, Sarah!

That was an entertaining watch.

I want Frankie to be on the cover of Blur's next release.

Re: Blur on US TV: The Tonight Show w/ Jimmy Fallon 30th Apr

:shock: Wow, this is major. Fallon is the biggest late-night show on-air now. And the show's social media presence is huge. Quite a step up from Jimmy Kimmel. It's too bad Craig Ferguson is off the air and Colbert isn't set to host Late Show until September - would've loved to see Blur on their show...

Re: sum blur up with 1 song

Well, it should be a song which could fit on every blur album. The only ones I can think of which wouldn't feel out of place on any album are He Thought Of Cars and maybe Sing. Yeah, He Thought of Cars is a good one. It's a slow, melancholy song but features great guitar work from Graham and bass l...

I bet the Avengers were thinking "What's the big deal with this band?"

Sadly it looks like none of them had heard of Blur.

I liked the performance, though. And Graham bonding with the Scarlet Witch.

Re: Favorite song in a language you don't understand?

I like quite a few Japanese songs, but I kinda understand the lyrics, so I guess they don't count.

I do like "Un Homme Hereux" by William Sheller, a pretty sentimental one.

Re: Magic Whip vs The Great Escape

Listening to TGE again to prepare for TMW's physical release, I had a sort of epiphany: Crazy Beat is not Blur's worst song. No. Dan Abnormal is much, much worse. Everything about it - the LA LA LA LAAA's, the annoying pinging percussion, the stupid Yellow Submarine "all together now" before the cho...

Re: THE DEFINITIVE MAGIC WHIP REVIEW

I honestly like reading Westway's comments.

After all the hype and praise in the official album thread, reading something like Westway's review helps keep my expectations from getting dangerously high (still haven't listened to the full album - waiting for physical release).
