Re: BLUR - 2023 LIVE

I don't think there will be the amount of warm up shows that we've seen in the past. Just my two cents. It's already mid-March, you'd expect these warm up shows to be announced sometime in the next month if they are happening at all.

Re: New Gorillaz album - Cracker Island

The album gets better and better the more I listen to it. Very, very good. Although I have to say my least favourite song is probably Silent Running. The only one I tend to skip. Does nothing for me currently.

Re: New Gorillaz album - Cracker Island

Plus Plastic Beach came out a massive 5 years after Demon Days. Demon Days had Gorillaz as the biggest band in the world, in my opinion. Amazing songs, amazing videos, just sensational. Then 5 years went by and they lost momentum. And then it was another 7 YEARS until Humanz. Crazy. I do wish they c...

Re: New Gorillaz album - Cracker Island

I'm at work and I was able to select the music this morning. I put on Cracker Island and lined up Plastic Beach to follow afterwards. Plastic Beach is playing right now...damn, what a difference. I like Cracker Island but compared to Plastic Beach (especially played back to back) it comes across as ...

Re: GORILLAZ ALBUMZ RANKED

BUMP!

1) Demon Days
2) Gorillaz
3) Plastic Beach
4) Song Machine
5) Humanz
6) Cracker Island
7) The Now Now
8) The Fall

Tough list to put together. 6 and 7 are very, very close. The Fall at #8 is quite far away from the rest in quality, IMO.

Re: New Gorillaz album - Cracker Island

Good album. Not the best Gorillaz album, probably not top 4/5 either, but good. Apart from The Fall I don't think there's a bad one! Upon first listen I found myself struggling to listen to it. Two songs in and I had to force myself to continue. I was disappointed to say the least. Then I found myse...

Re: A few random thoughts about 13, 23 years old today apparently

I'd argue that 13 and Think Tank were their first albums that made more sense musically when listened from start to finish. Leisure to Blur (and Magic Whip) were collections of songs. 13 and Think Tank were musical journeys. Just my two cents. :) Interesting points Tom, though I think the self-titl...

Re: Blur - The Magic Whip

8 years since the album was released, damn, where'd the time go??? Crazy that the time between now and Magic Whip has surpassed the time between Think Tank and the reunion in 2009. This has been the longest hiatus so far.

Re: B-Roads

I find the whole thing pretty funny. I remember when some folks claimed B-Roads was a 'Cocksucker Blues' type documentary. Nothing of the sort. Pretty tame, and to be honest, all the drama surrounding it was certainly overhyped. :lol: Oh well.

Re: BLUR - 2023 LIVE (PRIMAVERA SOUND ANNOUNCED)

Same as previous years then. Announce a big UK show and then expand from there adding festival dates. If any small UK dates get announced I wouldn't call them warm up shows, but a proper UK tour.

Re: BLUR - 2023 LIVE (DUBLIN DATE ANNOUNCED)

If I have a chance of getting tickets to a warmup gig, sounds like I need to be more involved on the Facebook group potentially. But Facebook is so godawful. Thanks everyone for the info! It must have been so exciting getting slips in the mail from the fan club back in the day. As the years go by, ...

Mineral water.

Headphones or earbuds?
