You can't even afford to buy a book right now, so you're not flying off to England to see a reunion. An interference gathering, sure, but not a concert.

YES!!

I won't be able to go to the show either, but I'm sure someone will record it for posterity.

And of course, a new album would be even better news. But this is the first step, right?

Oh yeah, FUCK OASIS.

What does Oasis have to do with any of this? Don't tell me you're still worked up about a "feud" that ended like 12 years ago.

It never ends. And, it's always worth bashing an overhyped, overrated bunch of alcoholics.

Right. And in the meantime Oasis have released 2 stunning albums this decade whereas Blur have released one album which got mixed reviews.

GAF is right. Blur vs. Oasis is so 1996.

Mixed reviews? How about an 83 rating on Metacritic, which translates as "universal acclaim", plus a 9.0 user rating?

Regardless, Oasis could never even dream of recording something as original and brilliant as Think Tank. I'll take one of those over two predictable Brit pop albums, which have Metacritic ratings of 64 and 66, by the way. That's what I call "mixed".

Thanks for playing.

Oh yeah, fuck Coldplay and Viva la Vida (72) too.

Blur > Oasis.

Oasis is very overrated. They're not bad, they're just nothing special.

For those keeping score at home:

Blur = Scorsese
Oasis = Spielberg
Coldplay = M. Night Shamalamadingdong
