Plastic Beach songs Product Information
Plastic Beach album for sale by Gorillaz was released Mar 09, 2010 on the EMI Latin label. Gorillaz began as a lark but turned serious once it became Damon Albarn's primary creative outlet following the slow dissolve of Blur. Delivered five years after the delicate whimsical melancholy of 2005's Demon Days, Plastic Beach is an explicit sequel to its predecessor, its story line roughly picking up in the dystopian future where the last album left off, its music offering a grand, big-budget expansion of Demon Days, spinning off its cameo-crammed blueprint. Plastic Beach CD music contains a single disc with 16 songs. ...See Full Description

I to got this CD becouse of hearing "stylo" on the radio. You have to be a fan to appreciate their weird and sometimes awkward tracks. Hay this is "alternative music" or "Club Music" man. I like most of all there LPs. Sorry some of you don't.

I suppose that in this day and age when it takes 5 years or longer for artists we like to make an album, we expect it to be earth shattering, colossal, and well worth the wait. Most of the time this doesn't happen for me. I gotta wonder what these musicians are doing for all these years that's taking so long. This album was ok. Maybe I was expecting too much. Maybe I'll listen to it again tonight. Maybe they just spent too long making it and got burned out. Maybe the spontaneous and quickly recorded songs of the classic 60s and 70s albums we hold dear is what's missing in today's music. Maybe I'll get to hear another album from Gorillaz someday many years from now after all our kids have grown up. Maybe Tool, Social Distortion, Boston, System Of A Down, ZZ Top, and Van Halen will make another album before we're all too old to care anymore. By the way, anyone else hear "Intruder" by Van Halen when listening to "Stylo" from this album?

||Demon days sucked what are you talking about?|
Really this is probably a 4 and a half star cd but I wasn't given that option. Listen to the whole thing streaming online a couple days before it's release. I would say this is probably the best Gorillaz album to date. The first two albums had only a couple of good songs each, the rest of the songs would get drowned in really bassy, boring, and annoying trip hop. Why can't great bands like this just write a whole bunch of pop hits? I'd rather have that than the lazy sounding crap I hear half the time, than throw away a year later. Anyway this by far is way more upbeat than Demon Days which makes it more accessible and motivating, and retains some of the freshness of the first cd.

After a very, very good album in "Demon Days," a 5-year wait and a slow, epic orchestral introduction to Plastic Beach, we are left with... general blah-se and disappointment. Demon Days set the bar really high, but I don't see why this album couldn't meet it or exceed it. If Plastic Beach took the group in a different direction, I wouldn't make that comparison, but unfortunately I don't really see Gorillaz trying anything new here. There are some GREAT tracks, I will admit: Rhinestone Eyes, Superfast Jellyfish, Some Kind of Nature and On Melancholy Hill (which may actually be Gorillaz' best song to date, in my opinion,) but the surroundings are so mundane and uneventful that the album really just comes across as half-baked. I like it, I really do... but just not as much as I was hoping I would. It's hard to find groups with as much potential as Gorillaz these days, and they definitely did not meet expectations with this effort.

This is a really lame follow up. Find it, someday, in the used bin but don't pay too much. Sucks to be ... this bad.
