Did they say what format the digital version comes in? I'm spoiled by NIN and Bandcamp giving out FLAC files.

Sweepstakes isn't nearly as bad as Superfast Jellyfish. With the crunchy, crunchy carrots (Oh that's chicken), gotta have it super fast!

It's me, I'm the one who didn't come around on Plastic Beach. So far, it's their least good album, even after The Fall.

Are those remix tracks going to be available as a single download? Right now, it seems like they're $1.29 each (at least on Amazon). Maybe there'll be a H-Sides album...

I'd like to judge songs on how well they hold up after some time. Like when I listened to DoYaThing, I thought it was just weird at first and didn't really have that Gorillaz feel to it, then after a few listens and finding it again months later, it grew on me and I got into how jumpy and funky it was. Also with Plastic Beach, I just listened to a few songs every now and again and they sounded great and held up years later.

DoYaThing is fine, so long you don't get the 10 minute long version. Because it's the poo poo.

Yeah, Iím waiting/hoping for an H-Sides album to be announced, because as much as I love Damon... I am not spending three times what I paid for a concert ticket to see them.

As for the new track, I found it pretty enjoyable, especially the second half.

I know I could find these tracks online, but I do also like to buy my music and "own" it. But yeah, I would prefer it as another $15 (max) CD than something ridiculous. I already have the G-Sides and D-Sides albums, so just put out another.

Same, but when Plastic Beach came out. (At least The Fall was sold for what it was.)

Clearly the answer is that there's a Gorillaz TV show coming out to Adult Swim soon.

for some reason I've had Andromeda stuck in my head ever since hearing those songs today. that's a song that did not stick with me at all when Humanz came out and now I love, weird

also probably old hat to most posters but I missed this single from last year (I don't think it's even on the Deluxe release of Humanz?) which is kinda in the same wheelhouse as today's songs

https://open.spotify.com/track/5pE9...NTwG7kMJDWOx74A

Wikipedia says this isn't on the super deluxe vinyl, but it is a single MP3 you can buy from Amazon. (So I just did that.)

And whatís up with 2Dís eyes at the end?

I remember from the Gorillaz art book that came out years ago (and a quick refresh on the wiki) that 2D had his eye damaged by Murdoc on two separate occasions. They were white before, but then Murdoc damaged them, turning them black. It's also how he took the name 2D. So probably something like helping him remember who he was.

Yeah, it seems like a B-Sides album, except that the first two B-Sides albums that Gorillaz put out were more interesting. This is like The Fall, down to having track names being about cities/states.

Looks like maybe it's dropping today? If you asked me ten years ago I would have never guessed that we would have too much Gorillaz. Now I'm worried that it's too much quantity, not enough quality.

They already did Bananaz, so I'm starting to feel like this is a bit too vain to do a second one. (Not to mention Rise of the Ogre.)

I can't even buy the mp3 off of Amazon, and my torrent site doesn't even have it for download. This is bullshit Gorillaz! I don't want to stream!

I'm assuming this gets put on a compilation later, but still.

I missed that it came with the CD, and I want those songs in a better form than YouTube mp3s. Ordered the $25 one, nice and cheap shipping, $3 instead of $15 like I was expecting.

So it turns out that didn't embed properly from mobile, but the SA iOS app converted it for me, oh well!

And now that it's live and I got to listen to it, it sounds like one of my favorite tracks so far.

I hope the book comes with the 17 track album. But knowing Gorillaz, the 17 track will only come with the $300 edition of the album.

The deluxe tracks were The Apprentice, Halfway to the Halfway House, Out of Body, Ticker Tape and Circle of Friendz. They were on the deluxe CD which was about $3 more than the regular CD iirc. They're probably also on all the digital platforms.

You're thinking of the super deluxe vinyl tracks, which included a bunch of demo stuff and worthless stuff, and like one or two good new songs like Garage Palace.

I sure am! I did buy the deluxe version, but I guess I forgot those track names.

That super deluxe poo poo drives me nuts. You can get the like 1,000 people who will buy that, or you could put them on H-Sides, sell it for $15, and I'm sure more people (like me) would buy that instantly.

Yup, same. Very professional of them to wait until the album already came out.

On that note, Amazon isn't sending me the album until Tuesday for some weird reason. First time they've missed a release date for me.

An email came out a few weeks ago saying they didn't want to delay the book longer by waiting for the CDs, so they're coming in another shipment.
