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

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.Read more ›
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!!

Since I've bought 2 of their other CD's before this one, I thought I'd buy it. I was told there was more rap in this album, but I didn't mind it. It really wasn't that bad. Read morePublished on May 16 2010 by R. Gemmiti
