I'm liking this tune. Finally, an upbeat number.

So what are everyone's thoughts on this? I liked it on first listen though I wish it had a couple of tickets on there. Very mellow and feels like it's dominated by Albarn. It's definitely not close to their peak from Modern Life to 13. But it's better than I thought it would be.

Highlights are Lonesome Street, New World Towers, Spaceman and Terracotta Heart.

I wouldn't say it's dominated by Albarn as it seems that Coxon basically made the album himself from the jams the four of them had in Hong Kong. I like the album a lot really. Not spectacular but it has lots of good tunes. I like the psychedelic vibe of some songs. My favorite is actually Go Out. That one's grown on me tremendously. L-o-o-o-o-cal thing is quite catchy and pretty cool in combination with the distorted guitars.

Hmm, I feel like it has a Everyday Robots vibe on a few numbers. But I definitely hear Coxon's influence as well. Those two records just seem to be a similar vein, though I really like both of them.

As a huge Blur fan throughout my childhood and teens, culminating in Think Tank in 2003 (which I loved) I am pretty disappointed. The concept is cohesive and the music is interesting, but I just don't like it very much. I don't think there will be anything that draws me in, or that will linger in my consciousness.

Glad they're still making music all the same.

I listened to it on Spotify with zero expectations - I didn't much like it. But then again, I've always been a fan of the singles and that's about it.

The singles really are the best part of Blur.
