I think Humanz is a good album, not great but good. Saturnz Barz, Submission, The Apprentice, Out of Body are all brilliant tracks. I won't be listening to these other ones though as no one has raved about one single track. I do enjoy garage palace even though i wish there was more to it.
Since TGBATQ he has done some prettygood stuff. I'd argue lonely press play is one his best songs ever

I agree Damon should take a break but that may be the blur fan in me just wanting him to go away and then bring back blur in a spectacular way.

After that album he spread himself too thin whether it be Gorillaz, Dr Dee, the musicals, Everyday Robots, Rocket Juice, Blur, now Gorillaz again. The guy doesn't stop. At some point he'll have to take a break.
I tend to agree with this. He has been a bit indifferent in the last decade.

I wonder if he sees 'Humanz' as disappointing, and seeks an invigoration of Gorillaz before doing other projects.

Humanz just needed a few less guest spots, and more live instrumentation.

Sex Murder Party for example, 5/10 on the record, 10/10 live. Likewise Garage Palace.

Add live instruments, swap Submission for Ticker Tape, swap Charger for Out of Body, make Carnival the 2D special, and put Circle of Friendz after WGTP and it is fixed imo.

These are all very solid fixes imo. I wouldn't get rid of Submission necessarily, but I could be happy with it being a bonus track and replacing it with Out of Body. Charger can't be taken away though! Keep it. Just add Ticker Tape somewhere... not sure where. It would kind of be cool to have it fade in at the end when you think the album's over.

I think I'm in the minority, but I fucking love Garage Palace! Roll on Birmingham on the 2nd!

Anyone get their copy of the Super Deluxe vinyl boxed set?
I bought mine the day of the release, prior to the initial sell out, thought that meant mine was of the original autographed copy.
I guess not.

Kind of annoyed, to be honest. That was a lot of money with months and months of delay. meh...

I got in touch with the record company I bought it though here last week asking for an update. They told me it would be sent on Friday. It arrived Tuesday, but they sent an email the same day asking me to return it because they'd sent the wrong one. Comedy of errors... but to be expected with any Gorillaz release these days imo.

They'd sent one that wasn't autographed. Credit to them, at least they realised and told me, cause I probably wouldn't have noticed.

With all the delays I came very close to cancelling my order anyway... was money I shouldn't have spent... oh well :lol:

It’s like a slightly worse version of Democrazy

I think that's a spot on description.
