I disagree with almost everything so far (Think Tank is great, The Universal is not overrated, Everyday Robots is a good listen, etc)

Here goes:
- Jets is excellent, even with the sax
- Wear Me Down is one of Blur's best album closers
- Leisure is better than TGE
- New World Towers is one of the best songs on TMW and is criminally underrated
- Criminally underrated is a phrase that is criminally overused in this thread
- Under The Westway is very, very good
- Music Is My Radar is better than Black Book
- Sunday Sunday is shit

I know not many people think it is, but Stephen Malkmus, who is popular, does. Or did, when he had that grudge.
Gosh he's such an entitled jerkoff. Great musician, but a jerkoff.

That's so true. New World Towers blew me away when I first heard it in MODE recording

New World Towers is gorgeous. Can't understand the lack of enthusiasm for it... My Terracotta heart also doesn't get enough love. Gorgeous tune, that one.

If only Wings were able to reach and occasionally go beyond the level of the Beatles' music, both in music quality and album sales. ;)

Don't agree with Gorillaz being better than Blur but I don't think viceversa neither (and that is an unpopular opinion: not thinking that Blur is definitely better than Gorillaz). They're just too different to compare, to my ears, I love their music in a different way, but they're overall at the same quality level.
