How is the chorus weird...? Honest question. I thought it was incredibly straight-ahead, after the kinda off-kilter verses. If anything's "weird" (and nothing here qualifies, in the grand scheme of things), I guess it'd be the intro. This is just a pop song about a made-up food.

I guess i just mean weird in that the melody would fit perfectly well during a saturday morning commercial break, but sounds a little out of place in a pop song. So not inherently weird, just in context. I dont necessarily think its a bad thing though.

This track and the one with Mick Jones and Paul Simonon are the ones I'm interested in.

My expectations are even higher after listening to that. The one everyone's saying is called Rhinestone Eyes sounds absolutely killer.

Also, has this not leaked? That's kind of amazing if it hasn't.

Recently, a lot of high profile releases haven't leaked until just a few days before their street date it seems. Maybe they're finally figuring out how to combat all that shit.

Yeah, I mean, I think the Japanese release date is Wednesday. That's kind of an amazing thing.

The samples sound pretty good, definitely more chill than the tense material Demon Days was filled with. Kind of like the debut, I suppose, but the melodies add more color to the proceedings.

The first five tracks have been circling around on YouTube here and there. They sound pretty damn good.

Well, it's certainly not Demon Days; its intensity and bile is missing from a lot of Plastic Beach. There is some level of social cognizance here, and that bleeds into the music, but there is a clear juxtaposition between the more chill music (definitely more in the vein of the debut) and the social commentary. It holds together surprisingly well -- this is perhaps the first Gorillaz album that isn't spread thin -- and that's doubly impressive considering the massive guest list. I really do like this album, especially the more melodic numbers, but the hip-hop tracks we were already privy to hold up extremely well in context.

Top 5 tracks:

1. Empire Ants (fucking amazing on first listen; will likely end up one of my favorite Gorillaz tracks in general)
2. Superfast Jellyfish
3. Cloud of Unknowing
4. Stylo
5. On Melancholy Hill
