The Good, the Bad & the Queen - Merrie Land

“Merrie Land” is like riding an abandoned ferris wheel with the ghost of Damon Albarn and his dummy telling tales of the past. The writing and the instrumentation work extremely well together to create a very melancholic atmosphere for us to delve into, making for an eerie listening experience. This is also some of Albarn’s best work in a while!

Wow my reaction was exactly the same as yours. This is some of Albarn's best work for a long time. Ribbons was my favourite track :)

Lmao you guys have similar best/worst picks. Lady Boston & The Poison Tree are top-tier SOTY contenders.

@AvgLizardHead Yeah I just noticed your review right after I posted mine! XD And I agree that Ribbons is also a great song.
