I think Nature Springs would have fit nicely on Demon Days. Beautiful song :)

I really love TGTB&TQ.

When I first listened to the album, I thought it was so different and better than Gorillaz.

Fave tracks on this album: Kingdom of Doom, 80's Life, Northern Whale, Herculean, The Bunting Song, A Soldier's Tale, Green Field and TGTB&TQ...amazing songs!!

Seriously - do that. It's a collection of really beautiful songs. Things like Northern Whale and The Bunting Song are such pretty melodies. I just dig the whole concept of this album and that it sits in the tradition of Damon's other great English / London themed work. Makes me feel all wistful for old Albion.

Anyway, on to more important sartorial matters - who else thought Damon looked well cool in his top hat? :D
Ah I need to definitely! Actually, damn it I forgot about the stream there. It'll have to be tomorrow for giving this a spin so. I'm gonna youtube the title track right now though. There's a televised live performance of it I found before that's amazing.

I prefer the live version, where the keyboards are removed from the chorus. Much more beautiful in my opinion.

I remember seeing them at the Roundhouse and being blown away, I had heard snippets only of songs from recordings from the tiny gigs leading up to it, can't remember if Herculean was released prior to the gig?? It was a long wait between that gig and the actual album release and I liked what DM had done with the production the same as I did with his work on Demon Days. When listening to it now I think the production left some of the songs a little lifeless but still love the album and until the release of TMW I would also have said this was Damons last great album. Favourite song for me is Nature Springs both live and on the album.

I could probably agree that TGTB&TQ is probably the last great Damon's work yet, it sort of set the sound that he followed for 10 years after that - "Plastic Beach", "Dr. Dee", "Everyday Robots" all sound familiar, despite the variety of instruments and sounds. The Magic Whip showed that Damon can still be different in some ways, so I think probably comes down to his collaborators and the band around him - it would interesting if Damon changed the people he works with, maybe that could bring something new to his tunes.

Magic Whip? Maybe. There's at least an argument to be made. Plastic Beach? Hell no!
