Product Description

Product Description

The Gorillaz claim to have found their motley crew of cartoon characters sleeping in Leicester Square, but Blur's Damon Albarn (a.k.a. 2-D) and cult cartoonist Jamie Hewlett (Murdoc) aren't fooling anyone. As the ultimate experiment in manufactured image, the Gorillaz are a virtual cartoon-character-based hip-hop band who bring together witty, silly lyrics and talented musicians. Infectious old-school hip-hop rhythms, rhymes, and effects courtesy of Deltron 3030's Kid Koala and Del Tha Funkee Homosapien (Russel) are combined with Albarn's passion for chugging lo-fi and edgy melodies to create a seemingly raw but ultimately slick blend of styles. This is nowhere more evident than on the hit single "Clint Eastwood," which is carried along by the sound of 2-D's slurred voice and a bluesy harmonica melody interrupted by Russel's punching rhymes. But the surprises don't stop there: Ibrahim Ferrer's appearance on "Latin Simone" could have come straight from Buena Vista Social Club but for the obvious Blur-influenced piano style, while the spooky intro to "M1 A1" wouldn't sound out of place on Michael Jackson's Thriller. Backed by Jamie Hewlett's death-wish character on bass, Cibo Matto's Miho Hatori (Noodle) on guitar and occasional hyperactive vocals, and produced by Dan "the Automator" Nakamura, it's hardly surprising that Gorillaz is marked both by a sense of playfulness and a passion for experimentation. --Caroline Butler

Before Gorillaz I had never heard of Damon Albarn, or Blur, or anything like that. But I had heard of Del Tha Funky Homosapien who raps on Clint Eastwood and Rock The House. I also knew Dan the Automator who produced the Gorillaz Self-titled debut. I'm a pretty big rap fan but I like rock as well. So being a big Del fan I heard he was going to be involved in a brand-new, experimental rock band. It sounded cool so I awaited the album. Then I started hearing Clint Eastwood on the radio. What an excellent song. A dark sounding hip-hop beat with an incredible piano loop. I loved the sleepy vocals on the chorus and Del's rhymes were tighter than ever.
After that I had to pick up the album. I went out that day and got it. And to tell you the truth I didn't like it that much. I was expecting an album of "clint eastwood" thinking Gorillaz was a hip-hop band. But after getting over that and listening to the album more it grew on me and I fell in love with it. This is truly one of the most creative and abstract albums i've heard. I like all kinds of music and that's one of the reasons why I love this album. So many sounds come together in this album. Hip-hop, blues, jazz, rock, reggae it's all there. Even the idea behind the band and image is great. The idea of a cartoon band with each member being represented by a crazy cartoon is excellent. This also makes their videos pretty awesome.
So if you're looking for something new, and are open minded I would suggest this album. Over anything else. It's got the best from so many different kinds of music it's hard not to love it. One problem though, I need the second album!!

I bought this album after hearing Clint Eastwood blah blah blah. Everyone who gave this CD 5 stars is wrong. Everyone who gave it 1 star is wrong. There's some decent material on this, but overall it's a disappointment. Here's a rundown of the tracks on this album (out of 5 stars):
Re-Hash: *** - A weak intro- Kind of repetitive.
5/4: *** - Should be renamed to 3/5. This song has style, but it lacks in substance.
Tommorrow Comes Today: **** - One of the better songs on the album. Got a trip-hop-like feel to it.
New Genious (Brother): *** 1/2 - Decent.
Clint Eastwood: **** - This song is pretty good until you hear your corny exfriend who lies about everything singing it all the time. It also got way overplayed on MTV2 and the radio.
Man Research (Clappper): **** - Quality Song.
Punk - *** 1/2 - Another decent song.
Sound Check (Gravity): *** - Not the worst on the ablum, not the best.
Double Bass: ** 1/2 - Too repetitive.
Rock The House: **** - haha, Del is the man. Another quality track.
19-2000: **** 1/2 - Probably the best song on the album. The video's great too.
Latin Simone (Que Pasa Contigo): **** - What translates to "What's up with you" turns out to be another highlight of this album.
Starshine: ** - Probably the worst song on the album- dull, repetitious, and just plain crappy.
Slow Country: **** - I like this one. Don't know what to say about it though, sooooo...
M1 A1: ** 1/2 - The first minute and 40 seconds of this song is probably the worst minute and 40 seconds of my life, it's that bad. The song gets pretty good after that though, but it ends too shortly.
Dracula: *** 1/2 - Another decent track.
Left Hand Suzuki Method: *** - Just doesn't cut it.

Gorillaz are an experimental group from the U.K., also known as a virtual band for their use of cartoon characters in their videos and on their website which is perhaps the best way to experience the group outside of attending a concert. This is their self-titled debut which was originally released on March 26th of 2001. The album did very well, reaching the top ten in the U.K., and the top 20 in the U.S. and Canada. The group draws from pretty much any and all genres, as there are hints of punk, reggae, hip-hop, rack, and more in the 17 tracks on this U.K. Re-Issue which includes two different remix tracks on the end, replacing the hidden version of "Clint Eastwood" which closed out the original CD.

This album is a stretch for my own personal musical tastes, but I do appreciate their innovation and vision. The songs tend to be a bit repetitive to my tastes, but they do have an interesting blend of styles and create an almost hypnotic sound which keeps the listener not just interested, but entranced and absorbed by the music. Included are 17 pieces and over 64 minutes of music. Four singles were released from the album including "Clint Eastwood, "19-2000", "Rock the House", and "Tomorrow Comes Today". It also comes as no surprise that a group like this would produce an enhanced CD, nor that they would make it a great multimedia experience with animation and music and sounds, along with links to other sites which may be of interest.

The creative force behind the group is Damon Albarn who was the lead singer of Blur and has also been a solo artist, and who teamed up with comic book artist Jamie Hewlett to create the virtual group.
