You think Graham had an off day when he was clumsy and ham fisted? LOL.
I have blocked Westway's posts, but I thought I'd give his "review" a chance. I stopped reading after Go Out. This guy has no clue what he's talking about. Graham's guitars on that track are orgasmic. And looking at the ratings, this topic should be locked and hidden away in the depths of the forum.
Wow what is this North Korea!!!?? What has he said in order to get his posts blocked? Surely someone is allowed to disagree?
Westway constantly puts up with being called a troll simply for having a different opinion on recent blur output to others. I can't recall him being abusive to anyone??

I thought it was fairly positive in places and some of it I agreed with. The drunk dad at karaoke observation is fairly spot on and really made me guffaw and I like that song!

Also 7 is a good score!! If you think a 9 or 10 is for the very best music then 7 is pretty generous.

Blocking someone for an opinion seems the opposite of what blur are all about to me.

Rubi blocked Westway's posts from appearing on the board to them. I've done the same. Constructive criticism is fine, but Westway does it to the point of trolling most of the time. It's fucking sad and annoying and I can do without reading it to be honest.

Ahh I see! Sorry!!

I find him quite funny... I still don't see it as trolling go through and read his posts. He doesn't love a lot of this album, seems fair enough.

He doesn't seem to have a lot of love for Blur in general from what I've seen on here!

I honestly like reading Westway's comments.

After all the hype and praise in the official album thread, reading something like Westway's review helps keep my expectations from getting dangerously high (still haven't listened to the full album - waiting for physical release).

I think many of those comments are unnecessarily harsh, but see a sliver of truth in others.

Go Out doesn't have great lyrics. They sound like they're being made up on the hoof to me. It's still a great tune, and who cares about great lyrics anyway when they're hemmed in at Hyde Park with a bellyful of overpriced Tuborg?

Pyongyang is more understated than I expected it to be. It's a solid album track, and I like it too, but I was expecting - er, I'm not sure what, Blur's answer to Stairway To Heaven, probably.

Seeing I Broadcast and My Terracota Heart collectively being awarded 1 from a possible 20 is unfathomable though. My quest for 'The Definitive Review' continues....

good question, ill break down my rating system for you

0 rubbish with no redeeming qualities
1 rubbish
2 very poor
3 poor
4 not good
5 average
6 good
7 very good
8 amazing
9 masterpiece
10 perfection

so to put it simply, lonesome street and mirrorball are very good but lack that extra something to be amazing imo

I can sympathise with Westway, I was called a troll on the old forum for slating Everyday Robots. I still think it's shit. Everyone is allowed an opinion, good or bad.
