Each Gorillaz album tends to have it's own flavor so the sound of a new one is a real hard thing to speculate about.

I kind of hope he goes for some bigger name collaborators (within reason) and the band has a huge comeback as a result.

Del the funky homosapiens' recent album Iller Than Most is pretty good

it's a free download, if you don't have it, worth a go

I'd really welcome some upbeat Damon music!! I'm not saying his mellow music is bad as some of his mellow songs are my favorites my him, but lately, it's been a bit too much mellow music. I hope I don't anger anyone here, but to me Gorillaz was always about the music. I appreciate the art of the cartoons and the work it takes to make them but I can do without them. I thought the whole killing Noddle and having a cyborg Noodle was silly.

Do you think you'd like 'em better if they were like back in phase 1 when they were just a band that played music? I would; I feel like back then, the fact that there wasn't this humungous. almost cinematic storyline made it seem a lot easier to see 2D, Murdoc, Russel and Noodle as the band. Notice that with each album, a band member seemed to have not been there for a lot of the storyline; for Demon Days it was Noodle (although she recorded the album, she wasn't in the bad for a while afterwards), for Plastic Beach it was Russel, and for The Fall it was Murdoc (who didn't record with 2D aside from the vocals on Detroit). I think that once this next album comes around, the characters will all be back together again.

I agree MsMagic, it's mainly about the music for me. I hugely admire the design and characters, I'm a graphic designer, but I'm never really bothered about the whole storyline thing, just the broad concept of each album. If a new Gorillaz record did herald a few more poppy songs from Damon, I'd really welcome that too.

I think with most of phase 2 it was still a "band who just played music". It wasn't until the El Manana video and Rise of the ogre when they started incorporating storylines.
It's a shame the phase 3 story and videos didn't work out because, instead of making a conventional movie of the band they wanted to try something different. tell a story with music, videos and images

and yeah, I care about the music more than anything but the cartoons are still very much important to me... it's part of the magic of gorillaz, and come on what's not to love about Jamie hewlett?

On the plus side we can look forward to other projects before another Gorillaz album comes out :D
