'Plastic Beach' represents Gorillaz' high-water mark and features a diverse roster of contributors. This edition also includes a 45-minute documentary DVD.
Gorillaz are back. 'Plastic Beach' represents their most ambitious and groundbreaking album to date. It features a roster of contributors so diverse it numbers not just Lou Reed, Snoop Dogg, Mark E Smith, De La Soul, Mos Def and Bobby Womack, but The National Orchestra Of Arabic Music and Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, a Chicago-based nine-piece jazz/hip-hop group. Also appearing are Mick Jones and Paul Simonon, playing together for the first time since The Clash.
'Plastic Beach' represents Gorillaz' high-water mark. A 16-track tour through pop, rap, dub, soul, and electronica, from East to West and a whole lot more.
Like Murdoc says: "You're either alive or you're not. You're either on the ride or not. The rest of it is just whimsical etchings on the cave walls inside of the human skull, just someone trying to decorate their cage, keep themselves entertained while they're here. The album's coming out. And it makes 'Demon Days' seem like a warm up act. So at least I can say we've stepped our game up…"
This edition of 'Plastic Beach' also includes a 45-minute documentary DVD.
