Re: Blur Drum Chronology

Popscene should have been on all releases of Modern Life....sigh Absolutely - I did not buy the 'Popscene' single originally, thinking that it would appear on a forthcoming album. I eventually got it on the Canadian release of the album, which I bought to upgrade from cassette to CD. P.S. great dru...

Re: The Beatles Thread

I consider "Revolver" their best album and I feel "Sgt. Pepper" hasn't aged that well whatsoever and has become vastly overrated over the years. I like 'Sgt Pepper' but like many of the great albums of 1967 it is a 'timepiece'. i.e. it could only have been recorded in that year (or, certainly later...

Re: B-Sides

I think you had to be there at the time to appreciate the 'Leisure' album, and its context in the development of Blur. It compared favourably to much other indie music of that time, but the next two albums were better - and therefore a 'growth' in their music and stature. I think that many people (q...

Re: The Beatles Thread

One difficulty for the Beach Boys, in relation to the serious music fan, is that most of their chart success (whether mid-60s in the USA, or late-60s in the UK) was with the 'surf pop' songs. When they reached into more progressive music, I don't think this came across to the pop fans (who took thei...

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

But yeah, it really seems to be just me that's not liking Merrie Land! The reviews are very positive and almost everyone on this forum is enjoying it. I won't 'like' an album for the sake of it, just because I am a fan of the artist as a whole. :) I think 'Merrie Land' is a relaxing listen (as the ...

Re: Starshaped the tour - anyone been?

Sleeper have a new single out. BBC 6Music giving it airplay.

I must say though, I find the song a bit routine. :|
