How did I miss this glorious realease? Wow. I went to the movies the other night and thank god we have time to walk around the mall before hand because I went into Hot Topic to look at recent releases and I found "Plastic Beach" from Damon Albarn's Gorillaz... The third studio album from the band since they formed in 1998. Albarn is an effing genius man. "Plastic Beach" picks up right where "Demon Days" left off in such a great way. Snoop Dogg, Mos Def, Lou Reed, De La Soul, and Little Dragon are just a few of the marvelous guest appearances on this awesome album. I honestly don't know how I missed its release as I've loved everything Damon Albarn has ever done starting with Blur's self-titled album. I'm sure you all know the rockin fun party song from the album (not at all the albums high point, but absolutely its most popularized song) "Song 2" from its use in Starship Troopers.
Anyway, if you haven't already given it a listen, go out and buy, or download "Plastic Beach" by Gorillaz. It's a fantastic listen. You can't settle for onboard speakers with this one. Bump it in the car, with headphones or with kick-ass speakers...this one deserves it.
No signs of a vinyl pressing yet, but hopefully we'll see one soon.
