Re: The Magic Whip Reviews

To be honest and fair, the album is no 13 or Blur. I'd give it a solid 8.XX, A-, or Great but Not Perfect My Terracotta Heart is one of Damon's weaker ballads (if it wasn't for the content of the lyrics, I'd rank it even lower than I do) The album actually works because of it's somewhat mediocrity. ...

Re: 'Made In Hong Kong' documentary

This is a fantastic documentary! I have to completely agree with Alex's statement on Go Out I really wasn't into that track at all until I heard it in context of the full album and now it is totally one of my favorites on the album His take on the dirty nastiness of it and how it's the opposite of t...

Re: Record Store Day Los Angeles: Lonesome Street Flexi Disc

They are trying to do something to promote themselves in the USA so that maybe they would have a reason to play a few shows out here.
Great idea on their part!

Re: How many American fans are there here?

*raises hand* I missed them on their tour of self-titled because it was just after Song 2 came out, I was in high school, and I didn't want to be around a bunch of preppy jocks and people I was afraid were going to influx the show. They didn't play near me for 13, which gutted me greatly. Finally sa...

Re: Secret London gig, March 20 (stream on March 25)

Swapping out Crazy Beat with Me White Noise would have been such a smart move. Crazy Beat is easily my least favorite Blur song by a long shot. Me White Noise is awesome. So dirty and funky, bassy and gritty. Thumps Love it Good shit (and I like the Phil Daniels version too. his voice matches better...

Re: Secret London gig, March 20 (stream on March 25)

I can't keep up with all of the postings, was there a reason why the 2 tracks were cut from the stream?
Seems odd since the shit was played live. Why play them and then not share? Meh... I'll never understand shit like this.

Re: Damon Albarn - Everyday Robots album reviews

I really like Everyday Robots but I like his mellow somber simple tunes. When you read interviews about this album, he's very candid about his producer focusing it on those types of songs and how he has amassed a bunch of poppy uptempo songs that were never recorded for the album. Which is great! He...

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

I wonder if there will be an actual formal tour. Though it seems strange to not tour the fuck out of their new album in a dozen years, the silence thus far seems rather deafening. Obviously things can change and in a hurry...here's hoping they do! They were pretty good about keeping this album a se...

Re: NEW ALBUM: The Magic Whip

I hope not personally, Damon's voice is much stronger than Graham's and as much as I love Graham, I think Damon's vocals adds extra depth to the songs. Even on Coffee and TV the best part for me is the chorus part when Damon sings. He sings about as much on this stuff as he does on 13. I think that...
