It's certainly doesn't resonate as much as Demon Days, but I do think it's better than the debut. "Stylo," "Superfast Jellyfish," "Empire Ants," "On Melancholy Hill," and "Sweepstakes" are all excellent. "Rhinestone Eyes" and "Glitter Freeze" are also up my alley. But man is the Lou Reed tune disappointing.

"Empire Ants" made me remember how much I loved seeing Little Dragon open for TVOTR.

Join the club. I'm all about "Superfast Jellyfish" and "Stylo," though. Listened to the stream like five times, over the last 10 or so days. Hasn't really grown on me, though I'd never call it terrible. Underwhelming, for sure. That Lou Reed song, on the other hand, was heinous.

well if this were real life, I'd probably say something along the lines of:

"oh really? thats too bad man. I really like it."

But since this is the interweb, I will say:

"What???? get a fucking hearing transplant. you. fucking. suck!!!1111"

Oh, and now that Impy has mentioned it, yeah. I think I liked either "Empire Ants" or "Melancholy Hill." Possibly both...?

Oh, yeah, I'm not insane, it's not "terrible" or even close. And, I like Damon Albarn a lot.

I just was expecting, if not at least hoping for, better. Maybe a 2nd listen will be more revelatory.

Stylo is good stuff, though, no doubt.

ETA - So is Empire Ants.

Hate to say it, but even the best tracks here (which I do like quite a bit) don't even sniff "Dirty Harry" or "Feel Good Inc."

I completely agree, and, I wish it were not the case too.

That's a fair assessment.

"Clint Eastwood" is really the only track from the debut that I'd put up with the best ("Dirty Harry," "Dare," "Feel Good Inc." and "Fire Coming Out of the Monkey's Head") off of Demon Days.

Little Dragon's coming to FSU, so now I have to go.

I think it's their best album. Feel Good Inc. is still in its own class, but I think this one by far has the most enjoyable tracks.

It definitely exceeded my expectations.

I don't like Dirty Harry. I think the second half completely ruined it.

Funny, the second half is what elevates the damn thing for me.

You won't be sorry. They're playing here Monday, which is my last night in New Orleans. Sucks I'll miss them.

While I still like the song, I agree with your assessment of the second half


I liked the lightness and oddball nature of the first album more than the darkness of Demon Days. I think they've gone back to that a little more with Plastic Beach

Melancholy Hill is really growing on me. I love the little electronic keyboard bits

I just thought the rapper on that song was terrible. Completely ruined it for me. And I think most of the rappers Albarn chooses for these songs do well. Just not that one.

The second half is where he shoots all those people though.
