anyone else 'avin a butchers?
i thought it was good!
though it sounded a hell of a lot like Best Days. Still, I think it will grow on me. Really looking forward to hearing the other one now.
on the similarity cunt to Best Days. Uncanny.
...Best Days head on collision with A Whiter Shade of Pale.
No bad thing, still a fan after nearly 20 years.

Under the Westway:
...sounds like 'Whatever' by Oasis.

undecided about Puritan as of yet
is a gorgeous piece of music
Puritan might grow on me.
another album would be great right?
You can't really trust a word he says about it now.
Nothing awful but nothing special. I like the sound of The Puritan more.
One would have needed to be like Beetlebum or This Is A Low to really blow me away but that was never going to happen, I suppose.
i think is brilliant, a fantastic piece of music. Sounded like a very 'classic' Blur song, whereas The Puritan sounded like a classic Blur B side (which is a very good thing in my book).
Graham is one of my favourite guitarists and it's really nice to hear him doing something with blur again.
Whilst being pretty great up to the 'la la la' bit, there can be no denying that, at the precise moment that they hit, The Puritan does begin to sound like something Gruff Rhys shat out in 2003.
These tracks are enough to suggest they should continue.
I actually possibly slightly prefer the Puritan. Under the Westway's pleasant but, whilst it might grow on me, at the moment it kind of feels like Blur knocking off a Blur ballad and they've obviously done similar things much better before (the Universal, Out of Time, To The End etc.).
The Puritan at least sounds like an attempt to do something new - it's not a classic but it's at least a small progression. I hope Blur don't do another album, to be honest, as there's nothing here that really suggests they'll do anything that's either sufficiently brilliant or sufficiently different compared to what they've done before that justifies it but it's quite nice to hear a couple of new Blur songs and actually enjoy them.
