Easy. As much as I love Graham's playing and input to the band, I have never taken to TMW..just found the album a bit lacklustre...Even after repeated playing, I've never really warmed to it, IMO.

Fair point, if you don't warm to it, you can't force it. There have been albums by other artists who I like a lot and had albums for me that just never clicked, despite rave reviews and sales.

Time and future releases can often sway you one way or another. I remember ranking TT up there with Parklife when released in 2003 but it hasn't stood the test of time as well as other Blur releases for me and certainly left a bad taste a little as the years rolled on before 2009 with what happened with Graham and Damon's refusal to commit to Blur again. In some ways TMW has cemented some of TT's songs as classics in the Blur cannon but let's not forget it did have a few turkeys on it, but I do think that was due to not having Graham's input.
