    He's very much the equal of Radiohead's Johnny Greenwood in terms of versatility and sheer invention. [Sep 2001, p.90]
  2. There is as much to be embraced in this as in any of the Gorillaz material. If not more.
  3. Mojo

    Further evidence who believe Coxon is the most creatively restless member of Blur. [Aug 2001, p.98]
  4. Crow Sit On Blood Tree is a bizarre, schizophrenic, and determinedly unmelodic record that lurches drunkenly from the cascading fury of Burn It Down to the acoustic I'm Goin' Away, in which he sounds like an acid casualty from the original Woodstock.
  5. However essential it was to make, it just doesn't feel essential enough to keep on hearing.

    a really decent album. i was always a fan of blur and bought "happiness in magazines" by coxon. i was very impressed by that and got this a really decent album. i was always a fan of blur and bought "happiness in magazines" by coxon. i was very impressed by that and got this masterpiece on the cheap as well. i rate it even higher than "happiness in magazines" and i cannot stop listening to it. 'too uptight' and 'a place for grief' in particular are beautiful songs. Full Review »
