Plastic Beach [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Delivered five years after the delicate whimsical melancholy of Demon Days, Gorillaz's Plastic Beach is an explicit sequel to its predecessor, picking up in the dystopian future where the last album left off, its music offering a grand expansion of Demon Days, spinning off its cameo-crammed blueprint. A common thread among these tracks is they find Damon Albarn ceding the spotlight to his fellow musicians, preferring to be the puppetmaster behind the curtain, and Plastic Beach works best when he's finding hidden strengths within his guests. The album accentuates moody texture over pop hooks, and Plastic Beach is the first Gorillaz album to play like a cartoon ...

    This is FANTASTIC.

    After about a two year hiatus of listening to Gorillaz, a webcomic reminded me of it again. As I found that much had changed during those 2 years, I was curious to listen to some music of theirs. Then, looking at wikipedia, it said that there was a new album. All I could think was "I must listen to this. I MUST." I didn't go to youtube or anything like that, I just went straight to the gorillaz website where the entire album plays as you help the band out with various tasks on Plastic Beach. The new music had evolved from previous albums, and I liked it just as much as I had before, if not more. This album definately mixes genres to the point where I don't say what type of music it is when I tell people about the band or new album. Favorite tracks are probably Stylo, Superfast Jellyfish, Empire Ants, Some Kind of Nature, and On Melacholy Hill. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

    BOOYAKASHA!!!!!!!!!!

    This album is probably one of the greatest Gorillaz CD's ever to be sold on the market. No words can further explain how great this CD is.
