Blur never did anything to me !
I love this band.
i hope it means their next album doesn't suck.
que response: think tank sucks BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH.
If you call that a Blur album you may as well include Gorillaz and Graham Coxon's solo work as Blur albums.
I have no interest in it.
you're missing out.
The only good track is the hidden one at the beginning.
you're kidding, right?
It just doesn't sound like a Blur album to me. Yeah it has Damon's vocals and his influence but so does Gorillaz.
Equally, Dave drums on some of Graham's stuff and his stuff sounds, well, like his stuff in Blur's earlier albums.
Think Tank just didn't feel like Blur, but then 13 didn't much either.
They should reform the 'old crew' and write a new album together that either they produce or Stephen Street produces. Otherwise it'll probably just sound rubbish.
blur need to do to avoid sounding rubbish is write some songs like they did in 1994. hasn't worked for graham, has it?
(also, what solo stuff did dave play on? i know he drummed with him on the tour for The Golden D, but i was always under the impression that Graham did everything on the albums.)
And a few of the others? I've not checked.
They don't need to sound like 1994 (though technically that would be Parklife territory). They just need to sound as good as they did on Blur...and as good as they could have sounded on 13 if William Orbit had been as good as Stephen Street at drawing the great songs from them.
Apparently Blur is still an ongoing project, but for the time being (IE the next few months) The Good The Bad And The Queen and his commissioned opera are what he's focusing on.
although Blur haven't split up, Graham Coxon has left. That article was implying that he was going to join again.
i wont hold my breath.
