I'm honestly really curious why people seem to kind of poo poo on Plastic Beach because it's far and away my favorite album of theirs, and honestly one of my favorite albums period. Yeah, Pirate Ship and Cloud of Unknowing suck, and it kind of puts a damper on the end of the album, but literally every other track is excellent, where I can't say that about any other album. I know taste is subjective, but it's just odd to see everyone have such a different opinion.

What is it specifically that makes people dislike it? Or at the least, like it so much less than the first two albums?

Humanz is good but I skip far more tracks than I do on any of their others. Nothing I outright hate though.

Just couldnít get into it, hard as I tried. I will say Momentz and Charger are pretty cool too. I missed Damonís voice on the album a lot.

I wish the album sounded more like Humility overall. Itís chill to a fault. My favorite Gorillaz song is Empire Ants, so I donít mind chill, but it seemed like too much of a good thing. None of the songs are bad, but the album as a whole feels samey theoughout.

Magic City, Souk Eye, Fire Flies, and Humility are all A+, though.

ya this is pretty mich it. im mad at the retard fans who didnt like humanz because albarn didnt have enough vocals on it but think this album is perfect

Can I think both albums are bad? They're both bad. Humanz is slightly less bad.

I don't like to be negative, either. I'm usually pretty easy to please, but both albums did very little for me.

It's fine. Everyone I work with is an infant compared to me and flails their arms in anger when I tell them I don't know who Cardi B. is, so I've decided to stop talking about music with them anyway.

Can I still talk to YOU about it, Scary Dog? Please? :bigtran:

I dunno how an album with Rhinestone Eyes, Stylo, Superfast Jellyfish, Empire Ants, White Flag, Welcome..., and Sweepstakes can be just ďhmm.Ē

Not calling anyone out in particular, more wondering why PB doesnít get more love.

White Flag is awesome, though?

Glitter Freeze is fine. If you told me you hated Pirate Ship or Cloud of Unknowing, sure.

I can't get this song out of my head, it's so goddamn good.

I kept singing the title, so it got stuck in my wife's head too. But she started singing "Fish filet..." and god drat it, now that's stuck in my head!

Murdoc and 2D hate each other.

2D was never happier than in the Humility video when Murdoc was in jail. Russ even trips him as he rollerblades because he's upset that 2D is so happy.

In Murdoc's address to everyone about corona (yes, this is a thing) he named himself, Noodle, Russell and "the other one."

I think that's all it is.

Also, something about 2D's eyes are white now instead of black? I think that's a lore thing too.

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.

Eh, I wasn't much into it these first couple of listens.

But then, I said that about every song except Desolť and now I love all the songs except Aries.

I imagine some of those tracks are gonna be skits or interstitial-type things.

Either way, can't wait! Just a little over a month to go!

fascinating, but completely incorrect. music is music and your skewed perception of what gorillaz is doesnt matter to anyone but yourself, humanz is 10/10, so is the now now, so is the fall, so will be song machine

Nah, they're right. Plastic Beach was their last great album as a whole. I don't really care about the virtual aspect of the band outside of the cool videos and occasionally funny animated bits outside of the videos, though.

They've made some wonderful music since PB, and I've either loved every song on Song Machine or at least grown to like them, but Strange Timez kind of sucks. Which is a shame because once the beat kicks in, it's good, but the intro or whatever is way too long and boring and the rest of the good parts of the song, way too short.

I will say Song Machine is already way better than the Now Now and Humanz just based on the songs released so far.

All of them have great songs though. The Now Now probably has two or three that are right up there with the best - the rest just didn't click as much for me.

Gorillaz has seven loving albums now. How crazy is that after the waits between albums 2, 3 and 4?

Same list!

Rhinestone Eyes, Welcome to the World of the Plastic Beach, White Flag, Stylo, Empire Ants, Sweepstakes, Plastic Beach, Superfast Jellyfish...like, goddamn what an incredible album. I really wish Doncamatic was on there too since it's from the same era.

The more I watch the Pink Phantom video, the more I realize I dont mind 6LACK at all on the track, but he's not given much to visually do in the video and it's distracting as hell.


Still love listening to the song though

Yeah, his part has grown on me but his part of the video sticks out like a sore thumb.
