Muze PNote What do you get when you combine Damon Albarn, singer for Britpop superstars Blur, with hip-hop producer Dan The Automator? Gorillaz, silly! Albarn takes a busman's holiday and avails himself of the opportunity to take the kind of sonic risks one would be unlikely to find on a Blur album. This isn't hip-hop or dance music per se, though "Rock the House" is a bona-fide party rap tune, and Dan The Automator adds plenty of hip-hop elements and trip-hop beats throughout.
Muze PNote Ultimately, GORILLAZ is occupied by Albarn's arch, twisted pop vision filtered through a dizzying array of electronic sounds and studio manipulations. There are some interesting stylistic experiments, too, as on the Latin-style "Latin Simone," which features a guest vocal from none other than Cuban legend Ibrahim Ferrer, and "Slow Country," which, despite its title, is an excursion into the atmospheric land of dub reggae. This is a far cry from Britpop--imagine Blur in a sonic kaleidoscope. And then try in vain to imagine either of the Gallagher brothers attempting anything close to this.

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

Rolling Stone (6/21/01, p.78)
- 3 stars out of 5 - "...A playful piece of genre-squishing art pop. Inspired by the punky reggae parties of SANDINISTA!-era Clash....running with anything-goes avant-aesthetic..."

Spin (1/02, p.76)
- Ranked #6 in Spin's "Albums of the Year 2001".

Spin (6/01, p.148)
- 7 out of 10 - "...A multiculti grasp of the sweetest kind....Easy on the ears because they know the difference between calling people up and casting them..."

Q (5/01, p.115)
- 4 stars out of 5 - "...With its creepily urban feel, and innocent, nursery-rhyme quality of the melodies, Gorillaz couldn't be further from a self-consciously arch 'art' supergroup..."

Alternative Press (2/02, p.65)
- Ranked #15 in AP's "25 Best Albums of 2001".

Alternative Press (7/01, p.68)
- 8 out of 10 - "...Brilliant..."

Magnet (6-7/01, pp.89-90)
- "...Nothing short of sheer musical buggery..."

Muzik (5/01, p.66)
- 5 out of 5 - "...Genre-splicing, sample-collaging, spliffed-out hip hop...standing head and shoulders over anything Blur have ever achieved...and even overshadows much of Dan The Automator's recent output..."

Mojo (Publisher)
(4/01, p.98)
- "...A funky...meld of dub, reggae, hip hop, world music, pop and thrash punk....Electric, upbeat, and actually very good."

NME (Magazine)
(12/29/01, p.59)
- Ranked #48 in NME's 50 "Albums Of the Year 2001".
