I'm going to hold out now and wait for the album. The question is, do I have the will to do that? :D

Yeah, it's so good. The CHORUS is amazing ;)
One of Damon's finest choruses ever... hushed the no-chorus moaning! :lol:

Excellent! I have the audio. It's in one stream at the moment. Will split tracks and upload if people want it.
Please do!
On it!

I find it was very Damon solo album sounding (ala Everyday Robots). Not my favorite thing when It comes to Damon. I like it because its Blur. It just seems like I can't relate to what Damons singing, it is so wordy and not sure if these lyrics are heartfelt and have meaning .They sometimes feel like jumbled poetry phrases thrown together. Need to hear this better in context on the studio version. Favorite Tracks - Lonesome Street(not my fav like some others,but I dig it) , New World Towers (Best of the Damon solo style songs),Go Out, Ice Cream Man (from the audio i heard),There Are To Many Of Us, Pyongyang (the part where Damon fleshes out the vocals ,like they are going to be a big chorus but then drops it midline , missed opportunity :( ), Ong Ong, and Mirror Ball which is decent. Now some of you are thinking I listed a big amount .I feel even those songs I like are not amazing. Not sure where this would fit with rest of albums. Again this feels very Damon solo singer songwriter. I Broadcast is to shouty for me (Blur trying to be straight up punk). Then we come to those slow burners "I Thought I was a Spaceman" and "My Terracotta Heart" which just are the ones that feel the most rambling and minimalistic (Black Book).Feel like the rest of Blur are sidelined. Not trying to be to harsh as I hope they grow on me more. I just hold this band to such a high standard. Just feel like Damon has lost his touch for writing songs with anthemic choruses.This band has always had a sing along style even when they went from Britpop to stuff like 13. It could also be Damon's change in singing which has become more monotone. With Gorillaz it seems less noticeable ,but I think thats dew to collaborators. Anyways that my opinion, I really hope it will grow on me. Didn't mean to ruin anyones buzz

Have to say I thought Graham's vocals were amazing too, as I mentioned I usually just prefer Damon singing, but Graham's vocals definately added something to the songs like others had previously said!

I feel I need to temper some of this gushing.....surely it's time Damon got rid of his earring? He's 47 for fucks sake. :mrgreen:

At least he wasn't wearing a baseball cap with a ganja leaf on the front :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

It was really really good but I think it sounds more like damons solo stuff than blur
