Re: GORILLAZ ALBUMZ RANKED

2. Strange Timez - the closest Damon has got to matching Demon Days for quality for a long time. Could have been number 1 if it lost Chalk Tablet Towers (maybe with Opium included instead) I'll never understand why so people have a problem with Chalk Tablet Towers. Even Fantano and Brad Taste didn'...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

Sorry to hear guys. My experiences of online ordering have been good and bad :) :( Like many here I ordered the Almanac + CD + circle of friends back in May when it was first announced. The circle thing has operated well - I've signed up for the live stream next month, and I nabbed O2 tickets last ...

Re: GORILLAZ ALBUMZ RANKED

1 Demon Days 2 Strange Timez 3 Gorillaz 4 Plastic Beach 5 The Now Now 6 Humanz 7 The Fall It may seem a bit soon to put Strange Timez so high but I think it’s one of Damon’s most complete albums of the last 20 years and I agree about PB being overrated, it has a handful of great songs, but I would s...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

Into a week of listening to the album, my opinion of it has gone from a 7 maybe 8 to a firm 8. I think rather than the individual songs growing on me more, I'd say its more of the experience of listening to the album from start to finish and is a pure joy, I think the Damon presence and guest vocali...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

After a few listens in full, I am a little divided on the album, although mainly leaning towards the positive. I think this is a strong collection of songs at least on the standeard album, songs like The Last Chord, Desole, The Pink Phantom, Strange Timez and The Valley of the Pagans standing out in...

Great remix, great little rap at the end, like the lyrics 🙂

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

I think 90 seconds gives us a good idea of each of th unheard tracks, and I am impressed. I think the extra tracks are best off the main album, not because of the quality, as there is potential on what we have heard, just they would disturb the flow. What pleases me the most is that the guests at le...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

After countless listens, this for me is a beautiful song, very hypnotic. And the video is fantastic, many of the Gorillaz video’s since Demon Days to me have been a bit weak in trying to carry on the bands identity with the music, almost like the music has outgrown the characters themselves but this...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

After a number of listens, this is a grower for me, seems very hypnotic, these 3 artists shouldn’t go together but I think they fit well through great production once again. Wouldn’t want to say in what order I rate this, but loving the variety of songs for this album and how they all sound way with...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

It does sound underwhelming as a preview, but I’ll be honest none of the previews to me sounded that great, hopefully it will build towards something to do justice to such a big name as EJ, we will see at 5pm today 🙂

Re: The Jaded Hearts Club

I have listened to a few of the tracks already and just don't really get the attraction. Too many ego's wanting to be centre of attention for my liking, Graham in my opinion is the more talented member of this group, but doesn't come acros like he gets the credit he deserves, but I guess I am biast ...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

Nice interview, I'm looking forward to hearing the album in full, in its correct running order. I think its a little strange to listen to individual tracks being released over a nine month period, songs often make more sense in the context of some form of natural running order or theme. I actually t...

Re: Favorite Song Machine track so far

Desolee for me, especially the extended version, beautiful vocals and backing instruments, such a cool chilled track. I do like Strange Timez and has really grown on me, love the dark dance groove and Robert Smith is a great choice to work with and to have this open the album and then Beck, what a g...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

Really great song, Robert Smith is great on this and works really well alongside Damon’s vocals. Just listened to an alternative version on Apple Music too, even more of a dance vibe.
