5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing album., April 25, 2011
By 
This review is from: The Fall (Audio CD)
From the desert heat of Arizona to the highest peaks of the Rockies to the urban center of Detroit, Damon Albarn is on a mission to convey the sense of traveling through America. Recorded on the Escape To Plastic Beach World Tour on an iPad and lacking the amount of collaborators of previous offerings, Gorillaz may be the better for it. The album has a cohesive feel that is different from the albums before. Note that this is not a main album and should not be treated as such.

Some of the high points of this album are Amarillo featuring one of Damon Albarn's greatest vocal performances of all time, Bobby In Phoenix in which Bobby Womack delivers stunning gospel-reminiscent vocals, and Aspen Forest, an instrumental showcasing Damon Albarn's composing talents.

So in conclusion, if you love Damon Albarn's vocals and composing talents, definitely pick up this album. If you just want a bunch of collaborators or hip-hop, stay away.
