Cool. Dr Dee was mostly kinda boring but there's always a couple of great songs on every Damon project, so I'm glad we're getting an album. Saturn is one of my favourite Albarn solo tracks actually, I'll be happy if there's anything as good as that.

I really liked Dr Dee, the last bit on "the moon exalted" is just beautiful https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chxwvNMCizE" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I loved Dr Dee. I liked wonder.land considerably less as I mentioned a few pages back, but I'm still likely to buy this in case the songs grow on me. It's hard on just one listen, when you're taking in the whole production, to make firm judgements. I do remember I really liked Everyone Loves Charlie though. I'd like to hear Damon singing that one really, though I know it's a cast recording of course.

I'm eager to listen to sounds from wonder.land. I wish I could see it live, but I doubt that will happen. I was lucky enough to see Dr. Dee in London though, and it was fantastic. My favorite song from Dr. Dee is O Spirit Animate Us. It's one of Damon's most soothing and beautiful songs ever IMO :)

I just caved in and ordered the vinyl. White... hmm, should be nice. :D

Tom, this is an old demo from last year of one song I quickly found: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oh3MVpQv3Ac
And here's the Broken Glass performance from the NT night: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GP30vIltL_Y

Who Are You: has elements of George Harrison to it. Can't explain why really, the middle section is very Harrison-esque.
Secrets: beautiful ending, the "say it Alice" part in particular is GORGEOUS.
Me: really really good, more of a proper song format than the other two.

Overall I liked what I heard but I'd really like to hear the songs without any vocals. Oh and the production is FANTASTIC, so much better than Everyday Robots.

i'm hearing a lot of great melodies. especially the part "each day, please ask" in Who Are You
i can hear damon singing a lot of i in my headt, which is a shame we will never probably actually hear. he is my favorite singer so, yknow, i prefer him singing HIS melodies. but these singers are also amazing and perfect for their parts. so i don't want to seem like i'm discrediting them

anyway, i'm loving what i hear and glad i preordered it

Dr Dee had some glorious tracks. Cathedrals and The Marvelous Dream are excellent in particular
