Damn, and he's a blur fan too. Oh well, it was a about a 7/10 for me the first time I heard it, but it's grown on me since then.

didnt focus enough on the positive moments (lonesome street, pyongyang)... however he is right that ong ong and mirrorball are both weak, and its a pretty unmemorable end to the album

He doesn't seem to know very much about the recording process.

I completely disagree with his comments about the vocals.

Ummm.....pretty sure he reviewed the fake leak...

He said Lonesome Street was both sad and a lullaby.

He said Mirrorball contained synths and drum machines.

He said Ghost Ship turns into a jam.

He said Terracotta Heart contained big saxophone chords.

He f*cked up,. :lol:

true

but i dont know much about the recording process of most things i listen to, and that shouldnt really matter should it... a good song is a good song

"yeah theyre not the best songs... but it was only done in 5 days with some of damons old unused demos"
isnt going to really be part of the general discussion

Not sure how closely he's listened really - Lonesome Street a soft, ballad type?!

Would be a major fuck up on his part if he did :lol:
