Welcome to the World of the Plastic Beach
I've been trying to figure out just how to approach the new Gorillaz album from a reviewing stand point. And after many many listens, it's clearly evident that Plastic Beach is the most intriguing record in their small catalog. It offers intense amounts of collaborations and many different sounds throughout while still holding onto themes of artifice, environmentalism and a false sense of utopia. And it's still damn catchy. I was asked recently by a friend, Adam McGrath, to write up something for his website, The Creation of Adam. Head on over there and check out my article on Plastic Beach.
