Yeah they had more OOMPH when they played live. Great shows, especially with they all swapped instruments (minus Tony) and played Guns Of Brixton at their Bristol show. One of the highlights from any show I've seen. That was amazing.

Truth be told I'm more excited about a new album from TGTB&TQ than I am from Gorillaz. I'm surprised they didn't release a second album, I remember Damon saying they recorded a bunch of new songs for it. I forget which year that was though. 2008 maybe? Before the Blur reunion for sure.

No, I wasn't a particular fan of Danger Mouse's production on TGTBATQ. Thought his style suited Gorillaz much better. Which is a shame, because when I first heard the songs in live form at the Pig's Nose they were spectacular. Some of those melodies really moved me on first hearing them, but the songs lost something on the record. I'd like a simple, unobtrusive recording style if we get more TGTBATQ tracks.

Totally agree with you! Really great album and the b-sides were solid too. Very cool. Sadly Damon hasn't done anything that good since, at least that's my opinion.

Yep, Mr Whippy and both of the England, Summer (In Black & White) songs are great

Same here, I loved the live versions but the album versions were missing something.

I'm super excited about the Gorillaz news. I really like Plastic Beach I didn't think it was as good as Demon Days, but I don't think anything will be as that album is a masterpiece.

Is 2-J on this forum?

I don't even know if G-U will be back up even when the album comes out. :P

Very anxious for new Gorillaz.
Hopefully we will see more from the cartoon characters this time. I liked the whole Plastic Beach concept and visuals, but their wasn't enough from the cartoon characters like on the first 2 albums. I think Damon & Jamie realized this
The live show was one of the greatest things I have seen though, and I hope if there are shows again they do it in a similar way.

Very, very excited for a new GBQ.

Would not mind a new Gorillaz, but then again I do not see a great difference between a new Gorillaz or a new Damon solo project, except for the visuals of course (which, I have to admit, I do not care about too much... yes, it's out now... :oops: ).

I'd be happy with either Gorillaz or TGTBTQ album.

If they do a Gorillaz album they need to tighten the brand up though. It all fell apart on plastic beach.

I hope everyone on here has heard the new tony allen album, it's great

"Go Back" is one of the best tracks of this year for me and shows exactly what they are capable of

So, what is everybody's hopes for the sound direction the next Gorillaz album will take? Damon said that a lot of the songs on the next Gorillaz album will be 'upbeat', but i think it'd be nice to have some serene, mellow tracks on the next album too. I'm thinking maybe we'll be hearing some really funky stuff overtop of the upbeat stuff, since Damon hasn't done much that was really funky since RocketJuice and The Moon, which was 2-3 years ago, so maybe he'll feel the need to do a Gorillaz album with a funk flavor to it. Maybe we'll be hearing something as funky as Spitting Out The Demons was. I do remember Del saying on Twitter that it was a big possibility that he'll be on the next Gorillaz album, and I remember him saying in an interview that he wants to try to work with Damon again in general, so I hope to hear him somewhere on the album. What do you guys think? What musical style would you like to hear for this next Gorillaz record?

Also, yeah, i'd love to see more from the cartoon characters as well!
