This is another one that’s tough to keep in stock! Gorillaz is the debut album by the British virtual band Gorillaz, released in 2001. It includes the singles “Clint Eastwood”, “19-2000”, “Rock the House” and “Tomorrow Comes Today”. The album reached #3 in the UK and #14 in the US. Recorded at Gee Jam Studios, Jamaica. “Clint Eastwood” was nominated for the 2002 Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance By A Duo Or Group. What do you get when you combine Damon Albarn, singer for Britpop superstars Blur, with hip-hop producer Dan The Automator? Gorillaz, silly! Albarn takes a busman’s holiday and avails himself of the opportunity to take the kind of sonic risks one would be unlikely to find on a Blur album.

Description

Gorillaz is the debut album by the British virtual band Gorillaz, released in 2001. It includes the singles “Clint Eastwood”, “19-2000”, “Rock the House” and “Tomorrow Comes Today”. The album reached #3 in the UK and #14 in the US.

What do you get when you combine Damon Albarn, singer for Britpop superstars Blur, with hip-hop producer Dan The Automator? Gorillaz, silly! Albarn takes a busman’s holiday and avails himself of the opportunity to take the kind of sonic risks one would be unlikely to find on a Blur album. This isn’t hip-hop or dance music per se, though “Rock the House” is a bona-fide party rap tune, and Dan The Automator adds plenty of hip-hop elements and trip-hop beats throughout. Ultimately, GORILLAZ is occupied by Albarn’s arch, twisted pop vision filtered through a dizzying array of electronic sounds and studio manipulations. There are some interesting stylistic experiments, too, as on the Latin-style “Latin Simone,” which features a guest vocal from none other than Cuban legend Ibrahim Ferrer, and “Slow Country,” which, despite its title, is an excursion into the atmospheric land of dub reggae. This is a far cry from Britpop–imagine Blur in a sonic kaleidoscope. And then try in vain to imagine either of the Gallagher brothers attempting anything close to this.
