Another great effort from Gorillaz. I keep seeing reviews complaining about the number of collaborations on the record. Personally, that's always been one of the key ingredients of the band to me. Damon's voice is merely 2D. I've always pictured the other voices representing the other member. My personal highlights are 'Carnival" , "Charger", "Momentz", "She's my Collar", and "Let Me Out". This double vinyl feature has a lot to offer. It's unmistakeably Gorillaz from beginning to end. The deluxe vinyl book is pretty hefty, and filled with new images, and some bits that were previewed on Instagram last year (such as the characters stories).
It's a pity that the deluxe tracks aren't on a third disc, but I only paid 52 quid for mine so I can't really complain. When one considers that the book may go in stores for 30 alone (and Gorillaz fans would snap it up), and the records are about 20 for the two discs of heavyweight vinyl, then I got great value for money. I've had the album for a month now, and it's a regular player in my home. This album may seem disjointed and a bit out of sorts on first play, but give it a chance. Before you know it, you'll notice how a lot of the hooks grow on you.
