GORILLAZ CELEBRATE A DECADE WITH NEW SINGLES COLLECTION

The Singles Collection: 2001-2011, the career-spanning best of from Gorillaz, will be released on EMI s Virgin Records.

A 15-track collection of the band s singles, videos and remixes, The Singles Collection: 2001-2011 celebrates 10 years of audio visual innovation and three studio albums from the most successful virtual band in the world ever. The Singles Collection will be released as a standard CD, CD and DVD and 140 gram vinyl. A special edition import-only 7 box set will also be made available.

Formed in 1998, the band released their revolutionary debut album Gorillaz in 2001. The launch had many industry detractors who saw the idea of an animated pop group as merely folly and gimmick but the album went on to sell 6 million copies around the world. The hugely successful campaign took its toll on Gorillaz. As guitar-playing wunderkind Noodle noted sadly Every great band is destroyed by their success. Cartoon bands are no exception." Despite this, she wrestled the band back together for the release of second album Demon Days in 2005 and a run of groundbreaking animated live shows at Manchester International Festival and Harlem s Apollo Theater. In early 2010 Gorillaz resurfaced again this time from an island in the South Pacific with the album Plastic Beach. The lead single Stylo featured a bad ass Bruce Willis chasing down our intrepid Gorillaz who made a clean escape and headed out on their first World Tour with a crack team of musicians including Clash greats Paul Simonon and Mick Jones.

In ten years, Gorillaz didn t just top charts around the world, hit number 1 in more than a dozen countries and garner sales in excess of 13 million, they received influential awards and recognition that represented the band s significance beyond their music. Alongside a Grammy and an Ivor Novello, Gorillaz were nominated for four CAD awards and took home the coveted Webby Award for Artist of The Year 2006, plus the Jim Henson Award for Creativity. In 2006 Jamie Hewlett was awarded Designer of the Year for his work on Gorillaz; four years later the band graced the cover of tech bible WIRED magazine.

Always open to an interesting collaboration, Gorillaz have worked with numerous artists including Danger Mouse, Ibrahim Ferrer, Del the Funkee Homosapien, De La Soul, Kano, Bobby Womack, Ike Turner, Lou Reed, Mark E Smith, Bootie Brown, Tina Weymouth, Bashy, Little Dragon, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Snoop Dogg, Dan The Automator, Mos Def, D12, Phi Life Cypher, MF Doom, Rosie Wilson, Shaun Ryder and Neneh Cherry.

Biography

Conceived as the first "virtual hip-hop group," Gorillaz blended the musical talents of Dan "The Automator" Nakamura, Blur's Damon Albarn, Cibo Matto's Miho Hatori, and Tom Tom Club's Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz with the arresting visuals of Jamie Hewlett, best known as the creator of the cult comic Tank Girl.

If you have ever been curious about Gorillaz, their music, and their art, this collection is the perfect starter.

First off, you get all of the singles that they have released from their first 3 ablums: Gorillaz [Explicit], Demon Days, and Plastic Beach (no singles from their 4th album, The Fall, are in this collection). Also included are some remixes, such as 19-2000 Soulchild remix, and also Doncamatic, a Plastic Beach single that wasn't released with the album. It's great that the remixes and Doncramatic were included as these aren't played on the radio much.

Secondly, if you get the CD/DVD combo, you get a DVD of most of the video singles, plus some live performances, even one that hasn't been released on DVD before (i.e., the Roundhouse performance). So not only do you see the amazing art that Jamie Hewlett created, but you get to see Damon Albarn and his gang doing what they do best: perform the music!

Last, but not least, the artwork on the cover spans all 3 studio albums (or phases, for the Gorillaz fans in the know) from Jamie Hewlett. This is another great introduction to the art, but it also let's you see how the "band" has evolved over the last 10 years.

All in all, even for the die-hard Gorillaz fans (like myself), pick up this CD/DVD combo, even if you already have all the songs.

If your one of those people that really only wants the songs that you would hear on the radio then this is the album you want to get. I grew up on these songs (I remember when I first heard "Feel Good Inc." for the first time and I was blown away) however, I never was interested in buying their actual albums because I just wasn't that big of a fan. This album totally did the trick as I got all the songs I love plus extra hits. Getting into Gorillaz also got me into Damon Albarn's other band Blur which is different but still great in its own way. If there is one thing I must warn you about is that many Gorillaz songs are an acquired taste. Even on this record, there are still songs that I easily cannot get into and I just pass them by. Its all really a matter of opinion and I still overall, recommend this album.

It was a digital download so there was no shipping time. I was a bit annoyed that I had to Download Amazons Cloud Player to get it, but that is not the fault of the band.

It has all the well known songs from Gorillaz, plus a few remixes. Definite buy.

I wanted to see more videos, but this was ok.
Could have saved the money and seen more Gorillaz videos on YouTube...but the music CD was good

Gorillaz is a pretty interesting concept - a virtual band! Each album, and indeed just about each tune is an experiment, and you never really know what you are going to get. This album has some really great singles, including 19-2000, Rock The House and Dare, not to mention my personal favorite, Clint Eastwood. The videos are awesome, and really great to watch - I love them.

If you really want to get the best of the Gorillaz, then get this album. I love this disc, and don't want to let it go. It's a real trip!

Music as - iconic - as its graffiti comic videos. The subjects take a hard bite of you, but allows you to see the 'monster under the bed' as well as the beautiful heart of the Universe. If you are someone for whom some music is gold for the soul, you'll love the Gorillaz
