5.0 out of 5 stars Shock and awe, 3 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Plastic Beach (MP3 Download)
I initially couldn't get to grips with this album because I felt it was quite a divergence from the Gorillaz fare I was accustomed with, and it took several days of constant play to get my head round how much stuff is packed into such a seemingly small space. A bit like the TARDIS this album is bigger on the inside; you have to leave your prejudices at the door, step inside and immerse yourself in the world of the Plastic Beach. The character 'Russel' has sadly disappeared for some reason, but I read somewhere that he is swimming around in the ocean after reaching gigantic proportions, but that doesn't mean that Del A Soul aren't featured - they appear on 'Superfast Jellyfish' an excellently catchy track with Gruf out of The Superfurry Animals. While 'Superfast Jellyfish' is easily the most accessible track it is the more laid-back tracks such as 'To Binge' starring the beautiful voice of Little Dragon and 'On Melancholy Hill' that really steal the show for me. In fact every track has moments of pure genius and this album really lives up to the pre-release hype that was going on in all the music papers. The fact that the project attracted the likes of Lou Reed, Bobby Womack and Mos Def is testament to the talents of the permanent band members and adds credence to the claims that Damon Albarn is a creative genuis.
