The Good The Bad and The Queen/will Blur return?

Now Damon Alburn is busy with his new project, what do you think the chances of Blur recording anything more are? I've been hearing a lot about The Good The Bad and the Queen lately, it's been getting a lot of good coverage from the (UK) music press (NME, Mojo, Q) and the BBC and I've heard some songs on the radio. They're very atmospheric while they are playing but after they've finished, they for me just leave an empty space with no memory of what they sounded like. I think they're songs you really have to listen to and get to know well. If anyone' heard it - is it worth buying the album? there's one song that sound similar to dreamier Blur songs either To The End or For Tomorow (I forget which, but if it's For Tommorow that can't be a coinicidence can it - seeing the lyrics fits the whole return to the concept of London theme + the mention of being lost on the Westway, which goes right back to where Paul Simonon started.)

Kingdom Of Doom has just come on my launchcast station as one of their recomended songs. Sounds a bit like Blur, this is amazing, has that jangly beatley brit pop music but the rest of the song, Damon's delivery and Paul's bass (instantly reconisable) has a sense of eariness, like an attack warning (maybe because I was reading a post on urban75 about Threads and 80s threat/paranoia of nulica destruction & public survice broadcasts of what to do in an attack at the time) but the end sounds like the bomb going off. "drinking all day because the countries at war"
