All I knew about him was that I found, and continue to find to him very annoying.

Despite being one of the most consistent live bands I've ever seen, they're often fucking shite when playing on TV shows.

Unpopular yet somewhat positive opinion: Think Tank is a better album than Parklife and Blur.

Think Tank is a top 3 Blur album.

tracy jacks and jubilee should in every blur live set
Textin' abbreviates the brain. Aspirin takes away the pain.

This Is A Low is a great song, but a bit overrated. Same with End of a Century.

MLIR has some of Blur's greatest songs but also a lot of weak ones, bit of an inconsistent album for me.

TGE is a great album (In the top 4 Blur albums for me)

TMW is a very good album but a little overrated, maybe because people are just excited that there's a new album at all.

Pyongyang is overrated.

Country House isn't as bad as people make it out to be...I think it's a great song.

Also, not technically Blur, but Crow Sit On Blood Tree is my favourite Graham Coxon album.

Pyongang is overrated

Country House should have been directed by Peter Richardson. Same cast obviously.

The Great Escape is their 2nd best album.

Rick Rubin should have rejected Trailerpark beacuse it wouldn't sound right in South Park

Death of a Party 7" mix is better.

Bustin + Dronin is great.

Second to "The Kiss of Morning" on most days but definitely top album on other days
In fact, those first 04 solo albums are just kind of ranked as equal winners (but I digress)...

The first four Graham's are better than the other four.

Crow Sit on Blood Tree is his second best after The Golden D.
Empty Word, Burn It Down, You Never Will Be, those are the highlights.
