Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

A definite improvement over Friday 13th, very Gorillaz and good to hear Damon for the majority of the song, I like it. Certainly will be good to hear it all as a complete album.

Re: Gig: BST Hyde Park, London, 20 Jun 2015

I have to admit, I did hope we would have had something during the 5 years after TMW release. I understood his next thing would be Gorillaz as this was put on hold for Blur in 2015, but I never thought we would have 3 Gorillaz albums and one from TGTBATQ (not forgetting his upcoming solo one) before...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

I think the problem is, despite these songs being released in a single format they will make up an album later in the year, so they won't be all like Momentary Bliss. It is like PB being released in a similar way and say 'Sweepstakes' (which I like) being released after episodes which included Stylo...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

I really can’t see him ever revisiting Demon Days in sound, but I do like these songs and this new one may grow on me as part of an album. The songs do sound relevant to today’s music, which I have felt has been missing right back to PB in parts. I guess waiting nearly two months for an episode to a...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

I see something is happening regarding Gorillaz on the Jimmy Kimmel live show tonight (was supposed to be last night). Not sure it would be a live from home performance as you’d be stripping away any featured artists, band members etc, although plenty have done it since the lockdown. I actually hope...

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

Wasn’t expecting much earlier when watching the live broadcast, but what I have heard is beautiful. I agree about the ER & Dr Dee comparison, although on 2 of 3 listens of this I think the songs stand out better as individual tracks. This is kind of what I wanted ER to sound like when I heard Damon ...

Re: RIP Tony Allen

I was at the Roundhouse for the gig front row to the left side of the stage and I remember them starting again, Damon often does this, it kind of ruins it a little when he does this. Amazing gig and unveiling of the debut album, I remember listening to the songs unfold thinking oh well if there is n...

Re: RIP Tony Allen

I am really shocked to hear this, really sad news :( A big part of TGTBATQ has died but he seemed to be a really genuinely nice guy as well as a very talented musician.

Re: Blur remasters

I think they had been remastered, I think for me the biggest differences were on Leisure and MDLIR, they just jumped out on first listen.

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

It is growing on me, a lot less in your face than the other 2 songs, very laid back but I agree about the New Order vibe, very catchy.

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

After a couple of listens, I'd say it is a good song, but my least favourite out of the 3 released tracks, musically I like it but just think Damon's vocals don't really go anywhere, but part of me thinks it could be a grower like much of Damon's work. Its hard to judge when the songs are being rele...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

From the very short trailer of Aries hasn't grabbed my attention as much as the other two songs, and a bit dissapointed it doesn't have any vocal contribution from Georgia, not sure how she features on the song. But I could say the same about other work of Damon's that has been previewed by short te...
