Long awaited 2010 album from the genre-defying animated musical collective. Five years on from the release of Demon Days, Murdoc Niccals and Co. return with Plastic Beach. The band have taken up residence, recording on a secret floating island deep in the South Pacific, a plastic beach HQ, made up of the detritus, debris and washed up remnants of humanity. This plastic beach is the furthest point from any landmass on earth; the most deserted spot on the planet. As the world's biggest animated band, Gorillaz formed in 1998, and have since sold 12 million copies over two albums!
I was pleasantly surprised at the high quality that was put into this vinyl compilation of the Gorillaz Plastic Beach 2 LP set. The artwork is amazing all the way through from the cover to the labels on the vinyl itself. The vinyl is heavy and most definitely of a high standard as well. It was a pleasure to actually sit down with a good clean LP and have plenty of stuff to look at on the cover. I just wish that more music labels would bring back the vinyl because I don't believe that it is ever going to die as a format. Especially if the quality is kept to a high standard like this.
