I know that [you'll] think I'm a fool...
on October 9, 2002
Here's a Blur fan who can't believe all the bad reviews (see below), and these are from 'fans'? Yes, this album is marked ly different from the 3 that followed, but so is the overrated 'Blur' CD. 'Leisure' has many hidden treasures. Of course, all the singles are great ('She's So High, There's No Other Way, & 'Bang'), but most of the album tracks are gems, too. I especially dig, 'High Cool', 'Fool', & 'Slow Down'. This CD has the best drumming from Dave Rowntree of any Blur album, full stop. How he plays the part in 'Fool' is beyond me...his drumming has become far more staid on subsequent discs. Reading these other reviews, I think I may benefit from the fact that I've never heard any Stone Roses, Happy Mondays, etc...I'm just a pure Blur head. So these songs may sound 'fresher' to some fans than others. Still, I think this is as good as any of their more recent work, so don't believe all the bad press...if you like Blur at all, I think you won't be let down.
