Blur: 13

Keith Cameron, New Musical Express, 10 March 1999

TWO-AND-a-half minutes into the tenth track on his band's sixth album Damon Albarn is heard to ponder: "Where is the magic?/I've got to get better". The song is 'Caramel', where opaque Floydian psychedelia morphs into distended space-rock with additional call-and-response operatic chanting.

Total word count of piece: 812
