5.0 out of 5 stars Full of surprises, October 5, 2008
This review is from: Monkey: Journey to the West (Audio CD)
Being a fan of all things Damon Albarn, there was never a question of whether I would pick up this cd. What surprises me though is how readily accessible I have found it. Sonically, there is a lot going on here, but a lot of the sound of the album and much of the music will not feel all that foreign to one who has been a diehard Gorillaz fan for some time, as quite a bit of the music reminds me of something you might expect to have heard on G-Sides or D-Sides. (This also means that the "From the creators of Gorillaz" sticker tag is not an entirely misleading sell.)
I've been listening to the whole album from start to finish and it is definitely something that adds new quality to my music collection, there isn't anything quite like it that I have heard. It is Eastern, it is opera, it is also pop and rather Westernized... it's basically the perfect sound for the story of Monkey to be translated into the modern world.
The artwork with the disc is also very nice. I'd say anyone who has been tentative about picking this up should just go for it. No matter what your musical background or taste you'll likely find a way to connect with it, and you'll likely be pleasantly surprised by a lot of this peculiar and brilliant album.
