    Thumbs up New Gorillaz CD, "Demon Days"

    Is anybody else getting this album? I picked up my sweet handy dandy limited edition today and i must say that i am LOVING this CD. I wasn't sure what direction they'd take over a four year absence, but from the four times i've listened to this CD, i'm enjoying it immensely. However, any sort of rock/punk that was the last CD has been toned down a lot and this CD is moving pretty deep into the hip hop realm. A few of the tracks, probably like 1-2, have really unneeded rapping parts that just don't seem to fit, but for the most part, they're really excellent tunes. I found myself groovin' to it all day while working on some stuff. I can't wait to see these guys (and gal!) when they "tour" later in the year.

    I told you this before, but I do like that song that features the windmills. First it was the music video that caught my eye, now it's those iPod (or is it iTunes) commercials that feature the song.

    You know, the same thing happened when U2 had a similar commercial for Vertigo.

    I thought the same thing about them going a hiphop direction with this one, too. Again, this was based on that Feel Good Inc song. Made me wonder if they were doing that with the entire album or if it was just for that song. Either way, I thought it worked well in that song.

    Yeah, I only know two Gorillaz songs, though. The aforementioned one and one called Clint Eastwood.

    Yeah I'm planning on getting it too but I've been pretty busy lately, I'll probably pick it up tomorrow. I've heard mixed reviews about the album though but I'm glad to hear you like it Guyute. If it is even remotely similar to their last album I'm sure I'll dig it, not sure how I feel about the hip hop angle you're refering to though.

    What is the difference between the Limited Edition and the regular edition?

    The limited edition has a Bonus DVD that has "behind the scenes" stuff, videos, making of, etc. I haven't watched it yet though.

    Re: New Gorillaz CD, "Demon Days"

    Well I've had the weekend to listen to this album and even though its very different than their first I really like it's darker tone. There are some real catchy tunes, I especially like "Last Living Souls" and "Dare." Dennis Hopper's narration on one of the tracks is well, weird, but in a good way.

    After listening to this album several times I would still have trouble putting the Gorillaz into any sort of genre classification if somebody asked me to, they're just so different and thats a big part of the reason I like them. Much like their self titled album I think "Demon Days" will turn out to be one of those albums I appreciate more and more with each listening.

    Alright, it's been well over a year, but this CD still gets played by me at least four-five times a week. Still a brilliant disc.

    Anyway, www.kidrobot.com is selling their new wave of Gorillaz vinyl figures. I just ordered my set! http://www.kidrobot.com/search.cfm?k...ewlett&x=0&y=0

    That Murodc figure cracks me up. This is the second set of figures. The first ones i nabbed via e-bay earlier in the year and they're just as nifty. I didn't know they were going to release a new set, but i'm happy i got them anyway: http://www.spanky.co.jp/shopping/cre...k-ver._set.jpg

    Anyway, enjoy Gorillaz fans!
