Re: My thoughts on Blur in 2015 & Phase 4 of Gorillaz

I think the last time Damon tried to write a hit for the sake of a hit was probably Crazy Beat, and look how that turned out. demon days tho Melancholy Hill was probably the last one that was pure pop. Let's be real - every great songwriter loses their fastball eventually. Usually it happens in the...

Re: unpopular blur opinions

The Magic Whip was mediocre at best and only got great reviews because everyone was nostalgic for a Blur reunion album.

Re: Gig: New York City, 23 Oct

But special mention goes to the leading man - Damon. He lived every word, every song and had an absolute blast on stage. Even in his melancholic moments (appeared to sob on his knees through Spaceman), he was loving every moment and knew what it was to play at MSG with Blur. It really was a special...

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

It does seem like they're mailing in the live shows a bit, at least as far as setlists's go. The fact that they have hundreds of songs to choose from and they play the same 20-22, in the exact same order, show after show, is kind of a bummer. Try harder, dammit!

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

Thinking about it, The Magic Whip's artwork seems to appear on adverts for Apple Music (I'm sure I've seen it along with the Apple Music logo, however I could be wrong). Maybe increases the chance they could play there? I noticed the same thing! The Magic Whip is all over Apple Music ads. Although ...

Re: The Magic Whip: 4 Months On

don't like it as much as I did when it first came out...it's the first album they've put out that lacks a really great track (even Leisure and Think Tank had Sing and Out of Time). If Damon's songwriting had been more focused I think this could've been a 9/10, as it stands I think it's like a 6.5/10.

Re: Gig: Isle of Wight Festival, 13 June

Sorry but one of the draws of a Blur show this year is to hear new material, festival or not. Magic Whip songs shouldn't be dropped just because they're playing to a festival crowd. I'd be a tad annoyed if I shelled out £80 on a Hyde Park ticket to find out they only play 2-3 new songs. And at the ...

It's been 12 long years since they last played here, they've only gotten more popular since, and it sounds like they're only playing 1-2 US shows. MSG will sell out very quickly.

Re: The Magic Whip Commercial Expectations

I dunno, they've played in Atlanta 5 times before. And we're not as, err, backwards as other parts of the south. Maybe that's just wishful thinking on my part. If they do decide to tour the US I think there's a good chance they'll come to Atlanta - maybe some place like the Tabernacle (I think they...

Re: Think Tank at 12

I love Think Tank. I think Damon was at his peak around then as a songwriter - he was throwing off gorgeous songs like Out of Time and Ambulance left and right. And you can definitely look back now and see how that quality bled into Demon Days. As much as I've enjoyed the Magic Whip, I'm not sure he...

Re: The Needle Drop's review of The Magic Whip

Fair enough elasticaman doesn't rate the album like most of us or the critics. I don't understand his apparent irritation about this though. :? Like he's upset because everyone won't fall in line. yeah almost every comment of his the past two weeks has been really negative - approaching Westway lev...

Re: Blur on US TV: The Tonight Show w/ Jimmy Fallon 30th Apr

Am I the only one who thinks Damon was a bit nervous? You could hear it in his voice and see it in his face, at least in the beginning. yes! His voice was definitely a little shaky and I thought it was weird he never looked straight ahead towards the camera. America does strange things to that man...
