Perhaps they meant to put Primrose Hill. That would make a bit more sense.
Yeah but it seems like if they put Primrose Hill, they'd put it more toward Modern Life.

I really don't get the problem with Think Tank being a 3-man attempt. The quality of most tracks is undisputed. Yes, it's plain obvious it lacks Graham's genius, but is it so hard to look past that fact and enjoy it for what it is? Jeez...

I really have no idea which is my favorite yet. I'm just starting to pour over their discography in depth, but I think MLIR, Blur, and 13 are the frontrunners, with Parklife close behind. I haven't listened to Think Tank yet though, although I own the physical copy. I really want 21, for the full experience.

Blur 21 is great for those listening through the albums for the first time (especially because you get to listen through their b-sides as well!)

That's a lot of material for first-time listeners, though. Can be overwhelming. Image

True. You need a little bit of experience before you delve in to Sir Elton John's Cock. :lol:

like me, but it's a little shame that it's too short.

It would have been a fine b-side instead of crappy Tune 2.
