Right now I'm listening to Damon Albarn's new album, Everyday Robots. So far it's err..different.

In a good way?

 

I'm listening to a playlist of singles, movie tracks and alternates from the No More Lonely Nights special mixes thru to the Press To Play sessions.

  • NMLN has a weird mix (the DJ Mole mix running to 8 minutes 44 seconds) which has Paul stating "i feal destroyed, i feel a mole, oh". Its certainly one of the more interesting mixes of the song and not just a straight elongated dance mix, those can be quite dull.
  • Spies Like Us has some great guitar playing thru it, much more evident in the two studio demos which also reveal that Paul hadn't finished the words yet. In some way the alternates are more interesting than the final track. The 12" Party Mix isn't much to listen to.
  • My Carnival (SLU b-side) is such a cheerful song, impossible to not smile when that is playing and it's 12" Party Mix is really good; whenever you're getting a little tired of it someone starts clucking like a chicken!
  • Lindiana is another song that could have been a something if Paul had tightened it up a bit, its far better than Talk More Talk (have heard 2 alternate mixes of that but not the final one, its really not a good song going by those two, the lyrics are awful, here's hoping its heavily improved on the album). 
  • Yvonne really should have been on Press To Play as with a little bit of work it would have been a really good track on any of Paul's albums. It's quite strange going thru an albums alternates not being able to remember the final versions.

The good thing about going thru Paul's music is hearing material i either haven't heard for a long time or never before, sure not all of it is good (some is atrocious (the first five tracks on side 2 of Pipes Of Peace being brutal)) but something great is not to far away to encourage you onwards. Plus some of the stuff i'd relegated to being unlistenable garbage isn't actually that bad - not something i'll go back to very often but better than i remembered

The highlights so far being For Love, Now That She's Gone Away and Gone Are The Days. The rest just strikes me as standard Ringo fare - tho i am only up half way thru - Harry's Song is up next.

Alison Krauss did an excellent Beatles cover years ago with the great Tony Rice and his band...

Finally decided to give Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds a try. I expected to dislike it, but it's actually a pretty good album. So far I really enjoy it. Can't believe I've waited so long.
