Re: Damon Albarn - The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows

I have paid 299 CZK (czech crowns) for the stream. Its like 11 EURO. Is it too much or is it cheap? I don´t regret it, because the stream was in perfect quality and without any problems. And my wife was watching second half with me, so the price was in fact for two persons :-)

Re: Superstate by Graham Coxon

2) Fans are annoyed there are almost no reviews of the record so far. But isn´t this also task of the management - being in touch with major publications/asking relevant people to review the bloody thing? If for example Anthony Fantano was in position to interview Damon exclusively about Song Machi...

Re: Superstate by Graham Coxon

Might the lack of reviews also be somewhat due to the unusual ways of purchasing it? There doesn't seem much point in reviewing things for a streaming audience as you could listen to 15 seconds of each track and get a better flavour quicker than a review would provide. Every album is streamable, th...

Re: Superstate by Graham Coxon

Last Sunday I listened to two guys talking about about Blur for one hour on the University of Warsaw radio station. The weren't particularly young - one of them heard Blur for the first time in 1994, the other became a fan in 2000 - still, the radio's target are mostly students (although its also m...

Re: Superstate by Graham Coxon

I've noticed that a number of (to my mind) big records by important artists have largely fallen off the reviews/round-ups circuit. I think Damon is arguably the most-interviewed musician of his generation but Song Machine was curiously under-reviewed and barely featured in end-of-year lists. Graham...

Re: Superstate by Graham Coxon

Am I imagining things or has the super deluxe package for this been downgraded? I seem to remember the blurb, when it was coming out at the beginning of this year, suggesting there was something exclusive to that but now that seems to be paying twice as much for a signature? I have been holding off...

Re: Superstate by Graham Coxon

Pretty impressed on first listen. Be sure to check the album out. Graham is beyond recognition in places and Gorillaz would kill for some of the albums tracks.

Re: Gorillaz - Carnival EP

Meanwhile is a huge disappointment. Reminds me of how I felt about the teaser of Friday 13th compared to the finished song. All the great bits, which are so melodic, are in the teaser. The other songs are okay, but there are just too many features. It drowns out Gorillaz. It is like Damon is active...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine Tour 2020-2022

I was at the NHS gig on Tuesday and it was amazing. I've seen Blur three times but never seen Gorillaz before and their energy and enthusiasm was off the charts! So wonderful to see Damon on the stage as well, the last time I saw Blur was 2003 and it's been FAR too long. I have reviewed the gig on ...
