Muze PNote On the second full-length Gorillaz outing, DEMON DAYS, mastermind Damon Albarn (Blur) parts company with Dan the Automator and opts for a collaboration with Danger Mouse, the DJ most renowned for his GREY ALBUM mash-up of the Beatles' WHITE ALBUM and Jay-Z's BLACK ALBUM. Although this dynamic collection isn't a radical departure from its predecessor (Artwork by Jamie Hewlett? Check. A small army of guest stars? Check.), DEMON DAYS injects the party-ready Gorillaz aesthetic with a brooding sensibility that's immediately apparent on the zombie-movie-sampling "Intro." In fact, a morbid sentiment abounds, as evidenced by many songs, including "Last Living Souls" and "Every Planet We Reach Is Dead."
Muze PNote Even though Albarn has weighty issues occupying his thoughts, he hasn't forgotten how to boogie, as revealed by the slinky "Kids with Guns" (featuring backing vocals by Neneh Cherry) and the funky "Feel Good Inc." (with De La Soul), which sounds like the slacker cousin of Outkast's "Hey Ya!" The ominous "November Has Come" (featuring MF Doom) and the bizarre "Fire Coming Out of the Monkey's Head" (with a spoken-word performance by actor Dennis Hopper) round out this eclectic pop/rock/hip-hop offering, which equals, if not exceeds, the first Gorillaz disc.

Artist Overview

The Gorillaz is Blur frontman Damon Albarn's hip-hop/electronica cartoon concept band. While real-life participants have included such luminaries as Dan the Automator, Danger Mouse, Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, De La Soul, and Shuan Ryder, the Gorillaz are represented by 2D, Murdoc, Russel, and Noddle--four animated rock-&-roll apes created by comic book artist Jamie Hewlett. One might imagine a virtual band to be a tough sell, but in fact the Gorillaz have released two successful full-length albums and scored international hits with 2001's "Clint Eastwood" and 2005's "Dirty Harry."

Professional Reviews

Spin (p.64)
- Ranked #4 in Spin's "40 Best Albums Of 2005" - "[A] vivid, spastic concept album about the last primates to survive the apocalypse."

Spin (p.105)
- "Albarn still has great taste in other people's music. His new accomplice, copyright pirate Danger Mouse, fills in suggestively dubby spaces with choirs, staggering synths, and MCs ranging from De La Soul to Roots Manuva to MF Doom." - Grade: B

Entertainment Weekly (No. 821/822, p.136)
- "[This] follow-up is spookier, blippier, and more on edge..." - Grade: B

Uncut (p.106)
- 4 stars out of 5 - "Dazzlingly clever - great beats, brilliant production, top tunes and some of Albarn's best singing..."

CMJ (No. 914, p.4)
- "...an immensely absorbable experience with plenty of rhymes and funked-out marching beats to bite into..."

Vibe (p.143)
- "[A]s original - and just as much fun - as the first."

Mojo (Publisher)
(p.18)
- Ranked #18 in Mojo's "The 50 Best Albums Of 2005" - "[A] genre-busting, contemporary pop milestone."

Paste (magazine)
- "With Gorillaz enlisting the underground-infamous Danger Mouse as producer this time, the sound is more psychedeli-danceable than ever."
