Biography

With Blur bandmates Graham Coxon, Alex James and Dave Rowntree, Albarn released seven albums which placed the band at the forefront of Britpop. He is a not-so evil mastermind behind the most successful virtual band ever, Gorillaz, - and the voice of spiky blue-haired frontman 2D – whose four multi-million selling albums contain elements of rock, trip-hop, pop, hip-hop, electronica, and ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Music Still Exists April 29, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
No, it's not Gorillaz. No, it's not Blur. But it is a great piece of art and an excellent listen. Damon seems like the kind of guy who really loves life and gets to explore many facets of his talent. No disappointment here. Probably won't get much mainstream commercial exposure, but hopefully it makes enough to keep the man in music for many more years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everyday Robots Review May 1, 2014
Format:Audio CD
Beautifully honest with thoughtful lyrics and Damon's wonderful voice. Melancholy and wonderful. It kind of reminds me of some of David Bowie's more introspective songs. A wonderful CD, The man has aged well and as much as I like Blur, I love this album more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing. April 29, 2014

The sound of the album is something I have been looking for. It's a slow, relaxed, thoughtful experience. Not a bad song to be found.

4.0 out of 5 stars The softer side of Albarn, but not bad! May 7, 2014
By Sunstar
Format:Audio CD
Keep an open mind when you listen to this album, it will help you understand it better. I started going into it at first with the wrong impression. I knew it was Albarn's solo album, but I was still expecting a great vigorous album since he is wonderful artist. Mostly because I'm a huge Gorillaz fan and was pretty upset with the last Gorillaz album "The Fall". So if you sort of set aside all your previous thoughts and expectations about Albarn and want to experience a different flavor; this is a pretty cool album. It's soft, slower, but deep, and still very much Albarn.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine album from Damon Albarn April 30, 2014
Format:Audio CD
He's good, that Damon Albarn, isn't he? I've known and liked his work for years, but I can't claim to be a real Albarn aficionado so others may have more informed insights into this album. For what it's worth, though, I think this is a very fine album. It has a rather laid-back, often jazzy feel to it, reminding me of some greats of the 70s and 80s. I was reminded of people like Robert Wyatt, Paul Weller, Pink Floyd in Grantchester Meadows mode, even the more mellow side of Lou Reed...you get the idea. It's great stuff, beautifully produced with pretty stripped-down backing but a lovely rich sound.

The songs are a varied and interesting bunch. As you'd expect from Albarn they are melodically and harmonically excellent and have enjoyable and intelligent lyrics. If there is an overall theme it is the dehumanisation of modern life and how we interact with electronics more and each other less. The album's opening line, "We are everyday robots on our phones..." and lines like, "It's hard to be your lover when the TV's on..." strike home well, I think.

I've listened to this album a lot (I was lucky enough to receive an advance copy), and am continuing to do so with great pleasure. It will be part of the soundtrack to many people's summer, I suspect, but there's real meat here and I think it will last a lot longer. I'd recommend it very warmly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoughtfully mature and deliberate May 10, 2014
By Indigo
Format:Audio CD
I always dislike when people put artists in a box, thinking they must sound a certain way from their early years onward. People change, their sounds change, and who they are will always shine through on their tracks.

I love their early Britpop work and their Indie Rock, their Zombie Hip-hop and their Chinese techno opera; but this album proves that you don't have to shout to get a point across. It shows the beauty that can be found in minimalism. It's wonderful and mature, so to speak. When artists grow older and begin to strip away the excess, one can understand the rawness of this album. Those who can't appreciate this album are the true everyday robots (Haha) At any rate, it is surprising that this is his first solo album. It is always intriguing to see what happens when artists stand alone.

Of course, everyone has their different tastes, but I know what I'll be enjoying while designing, drawing or sewing.

3.0 out of 5 stars grey skies June 3, 2014
Format:MP3 Music
The cover art couldn't be more fitting. This is a challenging album to take-in, not because it is too avant-garde or weird. It sustains an anxious and sad emotional tone for the entire album, excluding two songs, and the tempos are consistently slow. But unlike many "sad" rock albums, though, the mood is also very detached. The listener is not necessary immediately engaged in the emotional experience unlike other famous sad albums, like Blood on the Tracks or Sea Changes. The songs can seem indistinguishable with similar melodies, tempos, lyrical themes and spare instrumentation. On one level, the album would make great aural wallpaper for a rainy day at the coffee shop - it is a "pretty" sounding album.

But that would be short-changing the great moments on the album. Songs like Everyday Robots, You & Me, the Sleeping Giant, and Lonely Press Play show Albarn's great skill with ballads/mellow songs. These songs are simply fantastic. If the other tracks on this album exhibited more variety, then these four tunes would stand out even more, and there would be more emotional payoff when playing the album through in one sitting. Unfortunately, the two attempts to be upbeat are very mixed. The cloying Mr. Tembo is like a very generic Brit-pop era Blur song, minus the band's inventive musical and melodic touches. The other upbeat song is better - Heavy Seas of Love. Coming at the end of the album, the uplifting tune is well earned and a relief. But I can't decide if the chorus is great or too "gospel-Blur meets the Lion King Soundtrack". The stand out songs on this album keep me interested in it, but overall Everyday Robots is dragged down by the monochrome atmospherics, sounding like an even more depressing follow up to the already bleak The Good, the Bad and the Queen. I recommend this for Albarn aficionados, not casual Gorillaz fans.
