Eclectic, and a grower over time
on 20 March 2010
In my opinion, this is the most Eclectic Gorillaz' body of work to date. This is because there is no unique or defining style (and there need not be, I hasten to add) because the album goes through a journey of musical styles and instrumental combinations. It opens in an almost Classical/Romantic style of sound shortly to be superimposed with the more familiar drum & bass almost modern reggae rhythms of previous releases from the group, and moves through to more laid-back almost summery songs. It doesn't turn banal at any point and certainly seems like a substantial album which should grow on you over time. Has all the hallmarks of a favourite in years to come.
