Biography

2D: “Uhmmm….The first Gorillaz album, our debut record, was more Russel’s…like… lots of hip-hop, funk and Cuban dub stars. Demon Days right, came more from Noodle and her dark doomy demos that she made, and all of her contemplations on the world ‘in a place of night’. Plastic Beach came out mainly from Murdoc’s head, all of his mucky exploits ... Read more in Amazon's Gorillaz Store

BBC Review

Gorillaz return with a blisteringly good album that happily skips from genre to genre and looks set to be one of the most rewarding albums you'll hear this year.

WhenGorillaz's debut album came out in 2002, buoyed by the huge success of the "Clint Eastwood" single, no one really knew what Albarn and co. were up to. We knew the band was supposedly made up of ten year old musical genius Noodle, Satan worshipping green toothed bassist Murdoc, cuddly brick sh*thouse drummer Russel and the blue-haired singer 2D "for the ladies", but it essentiallysounded like an Albarn solo album produced by then-collaborator Dan The Automator. Singles aside, the debut album sounded somewhat unfinished, with most tracks being no more than vague sketches.

Demon Days is a different, more widescreen kettle of fish altogether. Hooking up this time with Dangermouse, who produced the online bootlegGrey Album which spliced Jay-Z's Black and The Beatles' White albums together to create merry copyright hell, Albarn has accumulated a stellar supporting cast of star guests to broaden Gorillaz's musical horizon.

Tracks such as the basstastic current hit single "Feel Good Inc" featuring De La Soul and the free download "Dirty Harry", which seems to blend the menace of a children's choir over a Tom Tom Club-ish funk stand out. Shaun Ryder guests on the mighty "Dare", and sounds more alive than he has for years. But the album's highlight has to be the rumbling dub of "All Alone" which unites Roots Manuva with Martina Topley-Bird.

Other unlikely collaborators crop up throughout, with Ike Turner on "Every Planet We Reach Is Dead", Neneh Cherry sexily supporting "Kids With Guns" and Dennis Hopper narrating a tale about the happy folk on "Fire Coming Out Of A Monkey's Head".

A concise and enjoyable 50 minutes, Demon Days is so much more than just a rock star's novelty side project or thinly veiled solo album. It's a triumph for all concerned and should rightfully end the year as being one of its finest and most celebrated releases. Tremendous. --Ian Wade

This album is the best album in 2005. The music is varied, excellent and imaginative. A much much better album than the first one. A highly underrated band.

Apart from thier very first single from their first album back in 2001, Gorillaz didn't really appeal to me. And then came the first single off thier second album, the incredibly infectious Feel Good Inc. (with De La Soul on vocals) and i was converted. A lot of people who might buy this album based on the strength of the single might end up being disappointed as Feel Good Inc is really the most accesible track; on the initial listen i was, but i went back and actually paid attention to the songs and was blown away. The production and mixing is just flawless and the fusion of pop, hip-hop and electronic-disco-funk creates an incredibly intriguing listening experience.
Running through the tracklisting, you'll notice that this album is dark and this mood is set right from the Intro which uses a sample from 'Dark Earth' out of the 'Dawn of the Dead' OST. There's alot of irony and social commentary in here especially in track 'Kids with Guns', 'Dirty harry' (with it's lyrics "I need a gun, to keep myself from harm" sung by the San Fernandez Children's Choir) 'O Green World' and 'Fire Comming Out of the Monkey's Head' (with a creepy monologue read out by a deadpan Dennis Hopper - one of the many celebrities and guest vocalists/mixers on this album). But unlike many other artists, like Radiohead and Muse which use themes of doom and gloom, Gorillaz don't become bogged down in it and or take themselves too seriously, giving a cool, trippy, cartoonish - if a little bit eerie - listening experience.

So many people keep bagging on Gorillaz saying that from apart the two songs that played on commercial radio, the rest is rubbish, that it doesnt live up to the pop-iness of these songs ( feel good inc. etc) Those people are out to just listen to "Popular" music, you truly have to listen to the whole album instead of picking it apart and saying feel good inc. is better that one their more mellow or soulful tracks (don't get lost in heaven, demon days). Just because some of their tracks come off a bit odd and eerie, one shouldnt immediatly dismiss it. This is a brilliant album, by the time you get to the last track you'll feel like you been on a journey, with a perfect and ecclectic mix of music genres and artists. Be open, because one does not come across such asmart album often, for those who already dislike it, go listen to your green day or fall out boy.

I had the first Gorillaz album on tape and enjoyed it, and as a fan of Dangermouse I had to get this one. I'd already heard "Feel Good Inc." featuring the excellent De La Soul, and from listening to the album I have to say I'm not at all disappointed.
That's not to say the whole album's good. There are patches where it's not so great - "Last Living Souls" contains a dreary spoken vocal, and while "El Manana" is not a bad song, it seems somewhat redundant among the other songs here.
And yet that's the beauty of this album. That a song as good as "El Manana" can seem like the weak link should give you some idea of the quality of the other songs. And what songs! From the Madness-esque beat of "Kids With Guns" to the brilliant rap from Roots Manuva on "All Alone", from the tuneful lyricism of "O Green World" to the storytelling of "Fire Coming Out Of The Monkey's Head", this is an album that should not be missed.

This really is a great album! There are plenty of new ideas, the tracks are nice and varied, and there are guest appearances from many big stars, such as Shaun Ryder, De La Soul and Dennis Hopper but to name a few. Particularly good tracks include 'Dirty Harry' (a kind of highpitched, distant vocal track with an MC featuring later on), 'November has come' (really good rapping possibly makes this the best track on the album), 'All Alone' (pacey Roots Manuva track), 'Fire Coming out of a Monkey's Head' (Dennis Hopper telling a story to a great beat with a pleasant chorus to go with it), 'White Light' (you just have to hear this one it's hard to describe) and of course 'Feel Good Inc.' If you're looking for a fresh album with lots of variety and lots of great beats then don't hesitate to grab a copy of 'Demon Days.'

I LOVE THIS ALBUM! It even topped their last one which I thought was near on impossible. Every track is 100% original and erratic, in a good way! Usually when you buy an artists album, the tracks can sound similar to another on the album, or even another artists work! As the album is a world of its own, it may take some people a couple of listens before they fall in love with it. But I guarantee, it WILL happen!!

This is great fun, better than I expected. The one-two punch of Last Living Souls and Kids With Guns sold this one for me - two good tracks and a nice way to lead off the album. Feel Good Inc sounds much better now that it's in place on the album.
Albarn's casual melodies complement the excellent, almost minimalist beats from Danger Mouse. For anyone who picked up the (excellent) new Quasimoto album, much of this sounds like the beat to the bleeps of 'Greenery' on that disc. Very catchy and just right. Danger Mouse knows when to hold the beat back, and when to let the drums kick off. Hats off to his excellent work.
The real star amongst the guests is MF Doom - for those of you non-hip-hoppers he's the irreverent king of underground rap and operates under several aliases. His second verse here is a standout moment, typical of his mealy-mouthed, pop-culture infested style, and that track ('November Has Come') really whets the appetite for the upcoming Doom-Danger Mouse collaboration Danger Doom.
Back to the Gorillaz, and Demon Days works very well as a full album. It's kind of moody and even downbeat, but still manages to have a danceable groove throughout. A summer evening album rather than the sunshine pop feel of 'Clint Eastwood'. The closing three tracks are really a kind of song suite, and the meandering sprawl brings the album to a satisfying end.
Damon Albarn manages to be both heavily present and in the background, really allowing the beats, the samples and the guests the space they need to make Demon Days one of those albums that really makes you want to go right back to the start when it's over. Why only four stars?
