Re: WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!?!?

It is notable that the present situation affects the entire world.

There have been previous situations with extreme weather, viruses etc but particular to a region or country.

Re: Error in Tender

I don't think it is too noticeable under normal listening, but I am surprised that they didn't edit it out.

Re: Beetlebum: reaction at the time

I think if Blur had released "more of the same" in 1997 it could have brought a decline in chart fortunes, esp. given that by the later part of that year Britpop was starting to fade. 'Beetlebum' was subtly different but as dparrott suggests, the regular fans regarded style changes as an appealing q...

Re: Beetlebum: reaction at the time

I don't think there was a backlash - the singles from TGE were commercial and gave Blur airplay and TV well into 1996. They had a life in their own right - they appealed to passive buyers who didn't purchase the album. If TGE is seen as a disappointing album, this has been judged retrospectively and...

Re: Most Oasis sounding Blur song?

Agree that 'She's So High' could be Suede and that 'Stereotypes' and 'Oily Water' could be Oasis.
