Does anyone own (or have downloaded tsk tsk) the new album mentioned above by Graham Coxon, formerly of Blur.

I bought it today. I have listened to it a couple of times, its quite good and there are some really good songs on there. It has been said that it sounds more Blur than Blur, which it could be argued it true, it definatly sounds more like classic Blur than Blur do now. But anyway, does anyone have any opinions. :)

    I have to say I've only heard the singles off this album so my opinion's a bit limited... I thought the first single was pretty basic and nothing special and the second one to be far too much like Coffee and TV but it's grown on me recently and the lyrics are kinda funny.

    I'm in two minds about seeing him play in Belfast this month, would you reccommend it on the strength of the new album?

    Well, I am not familiar with any of his other solo work so i cant comment on that. But I think it would be worth it. There are some good songs. Bittersweet bundle of Misery and Bottom Bunk sprong to mind

    Yeh I probably will give him a go, really liked the Great Escape era Blur and it's always nice to get out to a gig once in a while.
