Well, he's already on it with TGTBATQ, sorta...


Don't think Sledge is happy about the new GBQ album, either. He's Blur-obsessed.

^ ha! good point. It's interesting that Damon is sort of comparing the new GBQ record to Parklife, cos I remember the first one being compared a lot to MLIR.

Yes, spot on. Blur had quite a long period in this respect, probably covering all the albums in the 90s, and most certainly with the Britpop trilogy (1993-95). Similarly, Gorillaz had it with the first two albums.

I don't think 'Humanz' is as commercial as other Gorillaz albums. I haven't listened to BBC 6Music as much lately, though 'We Got The Power' was played on there yesterday. I avoid Radio Two, but I can imagine 'We Got The Power' getting playlisted, because the 'positivity' in the song title chimes with their thinking. Have they been playing it?

Radio 2 not picking any songs really means absolutely NOTHING when it comes to how good the album is. Sledge clutching at straws here.

I have to rank/rate "Humanz" as one of the least radio or single friendly albums ever and I'm not criticizing it whatsoever. It's probably the best album (which I've said a few times before) is best suited to listen to an its entirely in a club or in your own home. Radio and singles are a complete injustice to the "atmosphere" that Damon was aiming here!
