For those who don't have them, these are from the Blur forums. Essentially, it's more convenient bundling of popular bootlegs, rarities albums, live bonus discs and the 10 Year Box, but they're still pretty neat for super fans. The demo stuff is always fascinating.

2. 13
3. Modern Life is Rubbish

personally 1a. MLIR 1b. Parklife 3. Blur 4. TGE 5. 13 (relatively out-there, relative failure to a hit LP; unnecessary bells and whistles; less outwardly pop than the others - of course this is the U.S. indie kid fave ;) ) 6. Leisure 7. Think Tank

That guy, while awesome for doing this, could do a bit better than 128kpbs, though I know the sizes would be huge.
I'll get them anyways, I have all their non-album tracks, but demos and such I don't have as much of, this will be cool.
"The public are collectively fucking retarded." - tylerdurden74 "The world is filled with people who are no longer needed - and who try to make slaves of all of us - and they have their music and we have ours - theirs, the wasted songs of a superstitious nightmare - and without their musical and ideological miscarriages to compare our song of freedom to, we'd not have any opposite to compare music with - and like the drifting wind, hitting against no obstacle, we'd never know it's speed, it's power..."

I figured as much. While I'm glad you would back me up on Great Escape, I still think Think Tank is great. I'm sure you love living with my review. Heh.

I listened to 13 more than any album this year, oddly.

I'd be curious to see you weave Graham and Damon solo projects into that list.

The Great Escape takes so much shit and I have never, ever, ever understood why. I celebrate the entire catalog, but TGE might be my favorite. "The Universal", "He Thought of Cars", "Entertain Me", "Stereotypes", the "I am so sad, I don't know why" bit in "Country House", "Best Days", "Charmless Man" - how can an album contain these things and not be considered fantastic?

Oh the suffering, I feel the weight of the world and all it's pain" FUCK YOU......Be the grizzly, tear some shit up, rather than tearing yourself up." -- Montana, 12/21/08

So sounds like Blur are rumored to play Coachella. What's the odds they will play Lollapalooza?

I have yet to hear this rumor.

it really seems unlikely to me that they will play their first show in the US though.

A friend and I were talking tonight about the idea of crossing the pond to see Blur at Hyde Park. The July 3 show is sold out but tickets for July 2 are still available.

This video practically sent chills down my spine. It's always touching to see bandmates reunite after many years have passed.

Mitchell you going?

It was in the Coachella thread.
