Am I wrong to think it's one of the albums of the decade?
not one of the best but very enjoyable has a handful of classic singles and doesnt have much filler
had forgotten how much I liked it when it came out. I´m going to give it a listen...
phenomenal. got to see the live show too, which was one of the best of the decade for sure.
i think it has to be in a least the top 30 though
Mainly because I was listening to BORN LIKE THIS. and remembered how immaculate November Has Come was.
Definitely one of the best albums of the decade, and far, FAR too overlooked.
just fantastic. and yeah the Opera House gig will certainly stay with me too, i don't think i ever clapped so hard at a gig.
if by any chance anyone hasn't seen the manchester opera house DVD, do yourselves a favour:
forgot how good it is.
November has come and el manana - the first time i heard the latter it made me cry. YEH PUSSY'OLE I NO
and O Green World
of what hip-hop could be. Funny it took a white British bloke to do it, but there you go. Fantastic record.
where hip-hop was invented.
it ain't wrong to think it's a good album, that's your taste. mine too.
I won't hear any arguments about that point. He is.
Their debut was incredible, too.
I was just thinking this morning how great an album it really is and how I need to go back and invest myself in it yet again. So very great.
probably as a result of there being so many collaborators, that they're always a real mixed bag - it's usually impossible to like everything on there. Still, Demon Days is a lot less skippable than the debut was.
Dirty Harry is a highlight for me, especially when the rap comes in, by surprise, halfway through the song. And Feel Good Inc. was amazing before everyone heard it 123456789 times.
with Alan Moore writing the libretto is actually going to happen!
but apart from a couple of standout tracks on each, both albums seem pretty ham-fistedly bad.
damon albarn's one of those people who's music i've always wanted to like, but i've never managed it. the good the bad and the queen were one of the worst acts i've ever heard.
