I don’t remember what I Gabe it when it first came out, but I know I overrated it. Don’t get me wrong, I still love the album. I have some fond memories because of it like being second row at their show in Madison Square Garden.

I’m not really fond of I Broadcast, Ong Ong, or Spaceman. They’re ok, but boring to me. Pyongyang for me is the best song on the whole album. I think it’s one of the best songs Damon has done in quiet a while.
I do sort of agree those songs are a just okay. I also think Terracotta Heart drums were too heavy in the album version. This ones so much more powerful https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h2mKFStgKQ8

But things like Go Out, Lonesome Street, There are too many, Pyongyang, Ghost Ship and Ice Cream Man make this album shine for me.

Best album since TGE for me. Amazing what a good producer can do.
agreed. I love all the songs on this album. But to each their own

Been watching Blur perform TMW at La Musicale and at Mode while I have been working from home (I can multitask :D ) and I still think they have that chemistry, they just slip so easily back into the band. It’s such a shame they don’t try more often as a band. I am very much back into TMW, still not sure where it fits against the classics but still a great album, and still get that wow feeling that we even have this.

I think the Magic Whip is a good album. Not as good as some of their best, but still a good one.
