Lonesome Street is amazing.

I like when Graham sings at the end of I Thought I was a Spaceman, in a higher pitch than Damon's. It gives a different feeling to that song. By the way, ITIWAS sounds exactly like a lost jam from the 13 era.

It is bloody fantastic. I'm in love with Pyongyang too. The boys have really pulled it out the bag. Can't believe it really.

I think I could listen to Ice Cream Man on repeat for hours and never get bored.

Another Pyongyang fan here. I love how it sounds epic and nightmarish at the same time. What a brilliant song!

I'm reading way too much into it, but I think it's meaningful, or at least just sweet, that the first thing you'll hear on the record is Graham Coxon's guitar playing.

my brain is stoked "lonesome street" and "Ong Ong", i love "Thought i was a spaceman" Graham's bloody pretty voice!!
but "My terracotta heart" give me sleep. i prefer more punky live "Go out" for album vr.

Love Tom for posting this audio! Thanks heaps mate!

Really enjoying Lonesome Street, Ice Cream Man and Ghost Ship, but Pyongyang would have to be my favourite! This could just about be Blur's best ever song. This is an absolute epic, something would have fitted very snuggly on 13. The chorus always manages to sneak up and surprise me. Beautiful track.

Just a random aside, did anyone listen to My Terracotta Heart for the first time and wonder why Damon was playing Hollow Ponds hahaha?

I'm pretty surprised you guys can judge it after an audience recording like that! It sounds promising, but I find it impossible to judge the songs just yet. Wednesday can't come fast enough. I just hope the powers that be don't bail on us like they did with the 100 Club gig!
