Gorillaz - Plastic Beach

Recommended Posts

Rhoda

I'm impressed - just over 2 weeks before release and not a single leak anywhere. Quite unusual for albums recently due to come out.

 

I'm very excited for this album and I've no actual idea why. Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of the group, but it's not like they're firm favourites of mine. I don't know if it's because they're so accessible (whatever mood I'm in I can find a song I want to listen to) because a lot of artists I have on my iPod are. It may be because I've not heard something new from them for 5 years. I don't know. What I do now is that I'm really going to play this like buggery.

 

I do wish it was more "Gorillaz" and less "Gorillaz And Thuper Special Guests". Mos Def and MF Doom were great, but it seems to detract from their talent slightly. Maybe I'm just being picky and pedantic now though...

Sorry I haven't been posting updates. There was a lack of interest from others (in this topic) at one point. Nice to see people still hyped up for the up & coming album. I will only post a few updates, because at this point you'll be interested, or you won't.

A new song from Plastic Beach has been released.

 

Gorillaz ~ Superfast JellyFish

 

 

It's interesting, I like the fractured, disorienting beat; pretty damned cool joint if you ask me.

Thanks for the heads-up. The album is just around the corner, so I'm going to skip a listen. I've heard good things from the reviews and other articles from publications, so I want that first listen to be something special. Nice artwork though.

National Public Radio

 

On NPR's official site, they have the full album for streaming. They were able to seal some exclusive first listening right to the album. Anyway, you can give the entire album a listen; it streams from the site, just press the play button.

 

The link takes you directly to the page for the stream.

The official video for Stylo has finally been released and I have to say that I f*cking love it.

 

Gorilaz ~ Stylo

 

 

Oh yeah and holy f*cking Bruce Willis with a .44!

That was f*cking awesoom!

 

I realize Gorillaz videos aren't supposed to make complete sense but wtf was that thing that came out of the ground and descended on the cop?

I think it was Mos Def's character. The sign behind the cop says Sweepstakes, and it is known Mos Def's character on Plastic Beach runs the Casino. Maybe its a symbol for how gambling can consume you?

 

Anyway, f*cking awesome video!

Only 6 days left! Hopefully my ordered copy will arrive on the day, or soon after.

Amazing video, loving Murdoc's reactions in the car and just how much of a bitch Android Noodle is, firing shots at a cop.

My attention was bought to this new album when I saw the "Stylo" clip on my YT homepage - love the track, and love the clip. And just like MK, my first Gorillaz experience was with the 19-2000 Soulchild remix, now I have all their albums (albeit only 2 have been released) and their G-Sides album.

Also, just to add, but when I first heard the song I didn't care for it one bit - I heard it and gave it chance, sure, but I didn't really rate it as anything special. Snap forward to the video premiere and I'm loving it. If that brands me a whore, then so be it, but I'm sure the video enhanced the whole thing for me. I must have listened to it about 7 or 8 times already today.

I actually feel like that with a lot of Gorillaz tracks there's an unusually complex over lapping of genre's to be digested, so you really have to listen to their songs several times to get a full appreciation for what's going on within them. The cool and original art direction of their video's always lend a hand though I won't lie.

Wow, I didn't even know these guys were working on a new record.

 

I'm getting a little bit of a Kenna-like vibe off of Stylo. Love the video for it and the remix too.

 

Superfast Jellyfish is a great track as well. Can't wait to pick this album up!

Just tidied up the front page.

Hopefully my copy will arrive tomorrow upon release. I don't think I can take the wait any longer.

 

EDIT: Just checked my delivery status, it's despatched and should be through the letterbox when I wake up panic.gif .

Yea, I'm just going to head over to Best Buy after work I think. First f*cking CD I've physically bought in ages. blush.gif

First listen, I only liked two songs. Welcome to the World of the Plastic Beach, with Snoop Dogg...I mainly like it because it reminded me of the jazzy music that I used to listen to on Sirius Watercolors. And of course, Stylo, just because it has that nice dark industrialish feel that I've always liked.

 

Will have to give it another listen or two (or even more if it grows on me).

Quite a good album... but still I like the Demon Days better. turn.gif

 

I only like three of the songs, the Superfast Jellyfish, Empire Ants, and Some Kind of Nature.

 

EDIT: Oh sh*t, I just watched the Stylo video, it's awesome!

Well, I just listened to it. I've got to say I believe it too be decades ahead of Demon Days. I think a majority of people will prefer Demon Days as it's more accessible and has a few radio friendly tracks on it, not taking away from the fact it's an amazing achievement in music. But I think Plastic Beach is just somewhere else right now. It just takes few rotations to get use to.

 

Every time the next track played, my jaw hit the floor. I was thinking of listing my favourite tracks, but then I played the LP, and they are all my favourite! Track 2 with Snoop Dogg is the weakest track on their though, but even that has a degree of quality.

 

I want to keep playing it, but I'm going to preserve the freshness for a while. Seeing as it's their last album, I want the feeling to last.

Very weird hearing new Gorillaz material. I picked the album up from HMV this lunch. Miles away from Demon Days, meaning...Very frikkin weird.

 

I love it. It's bizarre and oddly fantastic.

I just drove across town through what has got to be the most god awful sh*tiest rain we've had here in half a year, trudged through it, got soaked to the bone to buy this damn CD only to have some oblivious Best Buy CSR tell me, "Oh uhm....New releases don't come out till tomorrow."

 

f*cking Best Buy! Used to be a good media outlet, with a nice variety and an occaisonal deal on electronics, now it's just a cough away from being a closed down Circuit City. I mean have you seen a Best Buy CD Music section lately? Depressing as f*ck.

Slowly getting into it, Gorillaz material takes a few good listens before it can be truly appreciated.

 

I really like the mix of genres too, "White Flag" is great.

Just listened to it again, and loved it even better. I've got goosebumps! I'd go as far as saying that this is the best album I have ever heard.....period. But that's just my opinion, and of course there are fantastic albums that I have yet let my ears witness.

 

But it is masterpiece in my eyes. Empire Ants is out of this world, with everything just below it. However, I'm still not feeling the Snoop joint sad.gif . I might make a review if I get the time, but I don't want to listen to the album too much, just to review it. But whoa, another spin on Thursday I think.

It's also been doing great on iTunes: Wikipedia This surprises me; I thought sales wise, it was going to flop due to the brainless people who buy the majority of the crap played on radio wow.gif .
