Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

Excellent bonus tracks. Hopefully someone can share the full quality audio at some point. Hugely appreciated of course!

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

Yeah the marketing for this was terrible. It's okay to just put out The Now Now or The Fall because they're minimally made efforts and frankly dodgy blows to Damon Albarn's discography. But this. This is a great record and it'll definitely appeal to the people who'd know any or all of the members (...

Re: The Beatles Thread

I believe Paul's "Suicide" was also debuted during the Let It Be sessions, although obviously that came to nothing and just ending up being attached to a song on McCartney. Still, I love hearing those solo album songs played during a Beatles session! "All Things Must Pass" was another, of course. Wh...

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

well I'm in that minority too - I'm afraid I'm of that age where I still need to have physical manifestations of music that I love! Me too. Bought the CD and the green vinyl. I also bought the CD and do so every time Damon releases something. It's called being a good fan. Glad to see there are plen...

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

That's what happens when promotion isn't up to scratch and they release the wrong songs as singles. Merrie Land was always a grower. Gun To The Head too. Should have dropped either The Great Fire (would have been an excellent Halloween single) or The Truce Of Twilight (very Clash-esque). It's a sham...

Re: The Beatles Thread

I'd be extremely happy with a shed load of Abbey Road outtakes next year.

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

I wonder how this band will go? They could really go heavy on the festival circuit and do the right appearances and get a good name for themselves going. I was thinking the same. As cool as tiny shows are the band deserve a full tour to open them up to a bigger audience. Especially here in the US. ...

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

I’ll go as far as saying that not only is Merrie Land better than the debut, it’s also one of Damon’s finest ever albums. Demon Days is #1 for me but this isn’t far behind.

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

It’s a musical masterpiece. Listen to the songs and what they contain musically. Forget the lyrics for a minute and just listen. It’s not just drums, bass and guitar. There are so many other things happening during each song that it blows me away every time I hear them. Exquisite on every level and ...

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

I've been trying to rank the songs from best to least favourite (I don't want to use the word WORST) and I'm having a lot of trouble. So far this is what I have: 1 - Lady Boston 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9 - 10 - Gun To The Head 11 - The Last Man To Leave 2-9 I'm having a lot of trouble with. :lol...

I agree with whoever said Last Boston is one of Damon’s most beautiful songs ever. Simply breathtaking.

Re: The Beatles Thread

Sixth Beatle? That’s a stretch. A great producer don’t get me wrong but all the work was done by the band and George Martin. Anyone can remix a track. Talking about a sixth Beatle is interesting though. If I had to go for someone I’d go with Billy Preston. His contributions during the Get Back sessi...
