If this is the last one it's definitely a better note to end on than Think Tank.
I could deal with them not doing another, I love their solo projects too.

Add me to the list of people who didn't expect this album to happen, think my tipping point was the end of last year. Would love future Blur albums (because lets face it they are always pretty good) but if we dont get one I can live with that too

If we keep nagging them hard enough about another album they'll do some more :D

I mean from what they were saying it worked with TMW pretty good... :mrgreen:

They have said that this album is like an unexpected baby. Well most families who have a late baby end up having another one to keep it company. So lets hope they have at least one more 8-)

I know we've gone over this, but bloody hell this is a great album isn't it.

5 songs, at least, firmly in my top 20 all time Blur songs. Which is no small feat.

And the best bit, is I know those 5 songs I've chosen will be completely different from everyone else's selection.

Well done Blur - if this is where it ends, what a great note for it to finish on.



(In no particular order: Go Out, TATMOU, Pyongyang, Mirrorball, Ghost Ship)

Yeah, the album is standing the test of time for me!

The only track that really isn't cutting it for me now is 'I broadcast', skip it a lot.

Short doc about the making of the neon sign artwork I guess. Possible material for a future 'special issue' release of TMW?

I (along with many others on here) believed that Blur's run was over, there'd never be a new album, maybe even nothing ever again after their final shows pre-2015. How wrong we were!! I'm ecstatic and the fact that many of us here (the "old crew") waited so long for a new album through the dark years of nothing but spam on the old forum, we've now been gifted another Blur album to cherish. What a journey it has been for us hardcore fans!
I agree 100% with this Tom.

Not only were we gifted with a new album, but it's a brilliant album!!

I'm still in shock that I am going to see them in concert. I was listening to Beetlebum yesterday and I got a thought of "Holy Shit! I'm actually going to see Blur in concert!" I never thought it would happen. (Especially since I'm from America)

I'd love more don't get me wrong, but I'm just so grateful for all of this right now.

I had a great Magic Whip moment last night. I went to the pub to meet a few friends and they were already there when I rolled up. Got myself a pint, went outside, and this chap on the next table was playing Lonesome Street through a wireless speaker from his iPhone. He then changed it to My Terracotta Heart. He could obviously see me digging his choice in music and asked me and my mates what we'd like next so I said "Ghost Ship" which he kindly put on. Fantastic!! :mrgreen:
