The 15-track "Demon Days" is the follow-up to Gorillaz's worldwide smash self-titled debut, which has sold more than 1.54 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and six million worldwide, according to Virgin. EMI. 2005.
A side project doesn¹t usually hit gold, especially when said project is a quirky virtual collective fronted by cartoon characters. But the first, self-titled album by Gorillaz--the brainchild of illustrator Jamie Hewlett and Blur frontman Damon Albarn--actually hit platinum and turned into a surprise worldwide hit. Naturally expectations were a lot higher for Gorillaz's sophomore effort, but Demon Days actually is even better than its predecessor. With producer Dan "the Automator" Nakamura gone, Albarn, a.k.a. 2D, has paired up with DJ Danger Mouse (responsible for the infamous Grey Album that illegally mixed the Beatles and Jay-Z) to steer the musical ship, while a whole new slew of guests enlivens the proceedings. Albarn has described Demon Days as being darker, but there's a real kooky dance-party vibe coursing through the CD. Despite its somber tone, "Kids with Guns" is lifted by a killer bass line, for instance, while the catchy first single, "Feel Good Inc," is augmented by an appealing contribution from De La Soul. Other noteworthy guests include Roots Manuva and Tricky collaborator Martina Topley-Bird on the dubby "All Alone" and Happy Mondays singer Shaun Ryder on the bouncy "DARE." And yet it's a 69-year-old actor who gets to deliver the most baffling contribution--just listen to Dennis Hopper's spoken-word narrative on "Fire Coming Out of the Monkey's Head."

Anyway I went out and bought it, and I like nearly all the songs, except for "Intro" (it's dumb in my opinion) and "Oh Green World" (I can't get past the introduction without getting annoyed). The characters in the band are all weird yet somehow lovable, from the hyper cute preteen Noodle (who is a girl... I thought she was a boy!) to the calm Russel who gets possessed by ghosts, the almost zombie-like 2D to Murdoc, the Satanic bassist who lives in his Winnebago and who probably hasn't taken a good long shower for six months (and somehow manages to get me incredibly amused.)
Want some unusual music that will root itself in your brain and make you want to constantly sing along? GET THIS ALBUM. NOW.
Blur's frontman Damon Albarn and his savvy friends take it to the next level with this album- everything from melodic, soothing beats, to songs that will make you never want to stop dancing. The two most notable tracks on the album are:
DARE- catchy, you'll never want to stop dancing. Another reviewer of this album mentioned that the track sounded like it had been sung by a "weird womanly voice"- That's DAMON! Anyone who ever listened to Blur in their early days will appreciate Damons' vocals in this song.
Every Plant we reach is dead- Stellar,stellar. Mellow and dancy all at once, and instantly recognized as a tune from the Mac Ipod commercial. It's got a wonderful latin feeling to it, and this one too may cause fits of dancing.
This album has a little bit of everything for everyone, and if you haven't heard it, you're missing out!
I am amazed at the fact that almost every track could be a hit single. This album just makes you wanna get up and dance!!

I was a huge fan of Gorillaz when they released their first CD. The catchy beats and trippy lyrics were stuck in my head for months, but then, they were gone. Read morePublished on May 29 2005 by Adamitis
