Album Review Gorillaz – Plastic Beach Album
“Stylo” was the first single from the album, released digitally on 26 January 2010. “Superfast Jellyfish” is planned as the second single from the album, due for release later in 2010. “On Melancholy Hill” is planned as the third single from the album, due for release later in 2010.
Five years on from the release of Demon Days, Murdoc Niccals and co. return with Plastic Beach. The band have taken up residence, recording on a secret floating island deep in the South Pacific, a Plastic Beach HQ, made up of the detritus, debris and washed up remnants of humanity. This Plastic Beach is the furthest point from any landmass on Earth; the most deserted spot on the planet.
The brainchild of iconic singer Damon Albarn and Tank Girl co-creator Jamie Hewlett, Gorillaz are made up of mysterious and imaginative cartoon characters. While the image is powerful, it is the music that has ultimately made this project such a multi-million selling success. Albarn’s ability to diversify musically shows no signs of slowing down on ‘Plastic Beach’, the follow-up to 2005’s ‘Demon Days’. Collaborations with Snoop Dogg, Gruff Rhys, De La Soul, Little Dragon andmore make this a truly special album.
The world s biggest animated band, Gorillaz formed in 1998, and have since sold 12 million copies over two albums Gorillaz (2000) and Demon Days (2005). They have hit number 1 in more than a dozen countries and picked up awards including Grammys, Novellos, VMAs and EMAs.
