1. Damon Albarn - Sister Rust
2. Morricone (Think Tank demo)
3. Go Out
4. Damon Albarn - Electric Fences
5. The Outsider (Think Tank demo)
6. Graham Coxon - Just Be Mine
7. Don't Be (Think Tank demo)
8. Some Glad Morning (Fan Club Single)
9. Mellow Jam (13 demo)
10. Gorillaz - Hong Kong

If that gets a 6 the actual version should get a 8 or 8

An 8 or 8? :D

Haven't listened to Sister Rust and Electric Fences.

By the way, I remember that fake leak having songs slowed down in tempo and such. For example, Don't Be was much, much slower: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzYKO22kJMs" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Did he actually review those? If so, the fail is double. :lol:

The leak didn't have the songs slowed down, but the YouTube videos that appeared did :|

Dunno. We all make mistakes at work I guess, tiredness, too busy, or just plain lack of care - who knows? He's in the unfortunate position of his mistakes going public when they happen unlike most of us. And this is some mistake.

too many albums too review and not enough time
hard to keep up and allow albums the time they deserve sometimes

Yeah I've often wondered how many times he listens to each album before reviewing. Surely if he wants to listen a reasonable amount i.e. 8-10 times, he'd have to listen to music pretty much 24/7?

That's why I've never took him seriously and pay no attention to him. He's a fraud.

You can't reach any sort of conclusion or review a record after just 2 or 3 listens.
