ratings-wise Fallon is by far the biggest late night show over here, especially with younger viewers. Dwarfs Conan, even. So this is a pretty big deal!

Re: Magic Whip - song by song impressions

11 – Ong Ong (2/10) – One of only a handful of Blur tracks EVER that I can’t stomach. This song just feels so half-assed and isn’t even rescued by the beautiful oriental piano line that enters in the second half. Pass. for what it's worth, I think this song makes a lot more sense when you consider ...

eh, I wouldn't be so sure of that. Remember the golden rule: when Damon says one thing, expect the exact opposite to actually happen.

Re: Magic Whip vs The Great Escape

it's actually a pretty interesting comparison, I get a lot of Great Escape vibes listening to Magic Whip. Yuko and Hiro and He Thought of Cars could easily slot in on the new album.

Re: The Magic Whip Reviews

I think the 4/5's are just about spot on, btw. The lack of a big single is probably what's keeping it from a 5 star rating, which is fair enough.

Re: THE DEFINITIVE MAGIC WHIP REVIEW

Look dude, you're entitled to your opinion. If you don't like the record, that's fine. But you're so relentlessly negative about everything, I question why you're even here. People come to this forum to talk about a band that brings them a lot of joy, there has to be a better way for you to spend yo...

Ha, that's exactly why I love it - it's a totally new sound for all of them. If there's a song here that points the way to album #9, that's the one.

Re: The Magic Whip Reviews

Also, this is a bit of a boring post but oh well, does anyone know how Metacritic come up with their numbers? Because the average of those seven reviews isn't 85; do they give some publications greater weighting than others? http://www.metacritic.com/about-metascores - well explained here. Not bori...
