how pedant was that!
the band members themselves keep on claiming that they have no clue about blur's future, so how can you be 100% sure and pretend to know things when you clearly don't

I hope that those people are taking good notes of what's happening right now and that they' ll think twice before acting like they were in the band themselves/had better informations than anyone else/were so fuckin' superior :lol: :lol: :lol:
I never took the piss but was mostly doubtful at that point


Exactly. I'll happily put my hand up and admit that I thought this wonderful album would never arrive. I didn't ever present this as anything other than my gut feeling though.

Hand up too as I too was doubtful and I think I remember saying if it's on the shelves to buy then I'll believe it...I'm over the moon that it's in my collection now! :)

That's great considering the little to none promotion they did here!

I was not expected them to be in the top 10, so i'm surprised in a good way

(and it's just their first week in, who knows if they don't a higher position in the forthcoming days?)
