Really?? It's my favourite track along with Pyongyang. I have to restrain myself from replaying it a million times :lol:

And I haven't changed my top 3 yet!
Give me a break, man! This album is nothing but gems. Even the least favorite is damn good. :P

Go Out is such a grower. Wasnt really smashed by it at first, but I think it could become one of my favoutite Blur songs.

Yesterday may favourite songs were
Ice Cream Man
Ong Ong
Mirrorball

Today its
Go Out
Thought I Was A Spaceman
Ice Cream Man

Such a great album!

Both Go Out and TATMOU are huge growers aren't they.

I was walking down the street earlier listening to Go Out and I must say I strutted along to it like an absolute boss. It's great.

For some reason I'm liking the first three released songs even more now. I guess it's because they work better in the context of the album.

Go Out I loved instantly, but TATMOU I agree, it has grown on me now that we have the album. Maybe it's also because of its weird release that was inmediately outshined by MODE and Lonesome Street, that I didn't appreciate it enough back then.

I honestly think that the studio versions are 10x better than the live versions that were played before the album premiered. The live versions aren't shit or anything, it's just that I like the studio versions a lot more.

Spaceman is the grower for me. Really couldn't connect with it at first but now can't get enough.

Right now, the ones I find I am playing least are Ice Cream Man (by quite a long way) and Lonesome Street. I am addicted to Ghost Ship, Pyongyang and MTH which I have lost count of how many times I have played, those 3 are firmly in Blur's best songs IMO.

It's quite funny. How many would have guessed a "laid back funky summer jam" would be (as of this moment) the favourite track of the new record?

Laid back funky summer jam? .... Blur???
You gotta be shitting me. :lol:

Ice Cream Man is actually fantastic. I was cynical at first because the wonky synth line was kind of annoying, but it's grown on me so much. I could listen to the bass line in that middle section for hours on end.

Is that definitely the lyric? I hear "Some for you, some for you". Which makes sense in context!

I was questioning that myself when I last listened to it. I need to listen again. Like I need an excuse!

i thought it might have been 'something you'
because that one part says 'something you know nothing about'
but 'something new' is definitely a better lyric
