I KNOW there's something very meh about the video on the roof and the hints of LET IT BE in The Final Track They Will Ever Release, and I know Alex James looks like a very punchable twat - never more so than when in shorts, and I know he witters on about cheese far too much for his own good, but I can't help finding this latest Blur track profoundly moving.
