Re: Favorite tracks: 13

Tender Coffee + TV Swamp Song Battle Trimm Trabb I consider 13 to be an "album" in the greatest sense of the word. It's strange to even think of the songs separately from the whole. And as much as we rip on William Orbit today, his production work is really pretty great on this album. And Graham's g...

Re: Favorite tracks: Blur

I chose: Beetlebum Strange News from Another Star You're So Great Death of a Party Look Inside America It's interesting that people see this as a flawless album - to me it's actually one of their most inconsistent. I think On Your Own sounds pretty dated nowadays, and while I like MOR, I don't love ...

Re: "Hit" Or "Miss"?

I dig it. Hit.

Here's some old-school American punk. Not quite as spiky.

Re: Favourite Blur song

My default answer is "For Tomorrow," but if I think about it too long I get confused.

There are too many choices.

Re: Lonesome Street

I like the end with the whole group, thought the rest could have used a little more variety.

Interesting idea for a video, though.

Re: "Hit" Or "Miss"?

Hit! I'll have to check those guys out.

Here's another song from an early electro-pop group, one of their later ones though:

Re: Damon on new De La Soul LP

I'm really excited for this album. De La Soul is that rarest of creatures: a rap group that puts out quality albums consistently . I really liked the "Get Out" video they released a while back, it sounds like this is something completely different, though. In any case, more De La is always good in m...

Re: "Hit" Or "Miss"?

I like the slow-burn drama. Sometimes I find the "80s sound" hard to get past, but I'm leaning HIT on this one.

Here's something moody, and not really a pop song:

Re: Favorite tracks: The Great Escape

I like how divisive this album is. Here are my picks in no particular order: The Universal He Thought of Cars It Could Be You Yuko & Hiro Country House - yeah, yeah. Maybe it's because I'm American and didn't live through the "Britpop" era, as it were, but I think this song is fine. Great Graham sol...

Re: Stereotypes and Charmless Man B-sides

Funny, that description of them recording the tracks while touring sounds kind of like the recording process for Magic Whip.

Re: Favorite tracks: Leisure

I chose the five most popular ones. :) Don't really understand the hate for "Fool" - is it because it sounds like the theme song to a "Friends" knock-off? It may be slight, but I don't think it's bad . Some of the other songs, though, I have a hard time even remembering. I can recall the melodica in...

Re: Favorite tracks: Modern Life Is Rubbish

My choices: For Tomorrow Advert Colin Zeal Oily Water Villa Rosie I've always had a soft spot for Villa Rosie, I think because of Graham's crazy "riff" that starts it off. I feel bad for not choosing Blue Jeans or Starshaped or Coping... I consider this one of Blur's most consistent albums. And the ...

Re: What do you want Blur to play on the Magic Whip tour?

The "Blur" YouTube channel posted pretty much every song from every album in the days before the "Go Out" premiere, I wonder if anyone will look at the views for those videos as indicators of what people want to hear?

"1992" and "Battle," surprisingly, seem to have the highest views.

Re: "Hit" Or "Miss"?

Not too big on Devendra, but I liked that song. Hit. What about this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P6VKmRr4fPM" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; Lots going on in that song. I like the Game Boy sounds. Hit. Here's something stupidly simple. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQOfHmQlzcE

Hm, interesting song. I think it's a "miss" for me, sorry.

Here's a band I discovered recently:
