Re: Think Tank : more Blur or Gorillaz?

Damon has been keen on the fusion of electronics and world music for a while. You could say that connects Plastic Beach to Think Tank but I highly doubt that's intentional. It's just what he likes. There's more looped percussion on TT than any other Blur record which is a parallel between it and the...

Re: Think Tank : more Blur or Gorillaz?

Gorillaz is whatever Damon and Jamie decide it to be.

Think Tank has Alex all over it. If it were pure Damon the bass parts would be a lot less fiddly.

Re: Rank the Gorillaz Albums...

Each Gorillaz album is it's own thing, they're really hard for me to rank.
I like them all, though. Even The Fall is alright when you think of it as an expansion of the phase like the b-side albums before it.

Re: "Invisible" Graham Coxon solo output

Graham's been on a few different labels, it may not be as easy as you think to get everything uploaded onto one channel.

Re: New The Good, The Bad and the Queen album

Damon seems to be calling it The Good, The Bad and the Queen lately. Though he definitely didn't want the group to have a name earlier..
If we're guessing the name of the record, I'll go for 'GBQ2'. It'd be a lazy title but hey, it'd say what needs to be said.

Re: The Beatles Thread: SGT PEPPER 50TH ANNIVERSARY BOX SET

I was at Best Buy getting a couple little things when I saw an exclusive version of Flowers In The Dirt.
2CD, with a code to get a colored single mailed to you. Pretty good price too.

Listening to it now.

Re: GORILLAZ: Humanz Album Thread

Gonna do a review thing now. Way overdue. 01. Ascension - 10/10 Best opener Gorillaz have ever had. The album is about a party at the end of the world and is faster paced in general than they usually go. So setting the tone with this driving beat and Vince seamlessly blending typical party lyrics wi...

Re: GORILLAZ: Tour Thread - The Graham Norton Show

you know what's wrong with the live version of we got the power?
they don't harmonize on the chorus
whenever i hear it i'm just like 'that's not how it goes, it's your own new single that you wrote what are you doing'

Re: Humanz - predict chart position and UK/international sal

WFPK in Louisville has We Got The Power in regular rotation.

They played some Magic Whip stuff but not nearly this often.

Re: GORILLAZ: Humanz Album Thread // 28th April

i much think the live version sounds better.
damon's voice without the megaphone sound is just so clear and good
jamie principle sounds more into it as well

Re: Humanz - predict chart position and UK/international sal

Humanz has better songs for radio play than Plastic Beach.
Wouldn't surprise me if it sold better just based on that.

Re: GORILLAZ: Humanz Album Thread // 28th April

Sex Murder Party is a great example of how a good beat really helps Damon's songwriting.

Like, imagine his part but with a slow boring Richard Russell beat. Sucks, right?

Re: GORILLAZ: Humanz Album Thread // 28th April

My picks for his best work since Demon Days would be TMW, followed by either GBQ or Plastic Beach and then this.

I don't consider this top-tier Damon but he's made some of my all time favorite records so..
