On first pass this is the worst Gorillaz album. Worse than The Fall. Maybe it will grow on me. Just seems like it's not very cohesive, and most of the good songs came out before the album were released. Because there are some good tracks on it. Hallelujah Money is one of my new favorites. Busted & Blue feels like it belongs on Demon Days. I kind of like Let Me Out, even though it's kind of generic. We Got The Power is just fucking terrible. Interlude: Non-Conformist Oath is just fucking cringey, even though it's not a song.

I just feel like there's not a lot on here, that's wasn't released as a single to tease the album. She's My Collar is alright, I guess? Strobelight wasn't terrible? I don't know. Maybe it needs time to grow, but a lot of the album feels like filler.

Ugh, I don't want to compare it to Plastic Beach, but like it's similar in the fact that most of the songs aren't really Albarn lead. But like Plastic Beach had an interesting sound and everything seemed unique, yet cohesive. This just all sounds like generic brandless fucking garbage, aside from like Hallelujah Money. Not a huge fan.

Favorite song is definitely Submission. I'd like to sit with the album for a while before I make any serious judgements, and I'd definitely like to listen to a version without an obnoxious buzzing sound before I make any big judgements. Overall, I like it though, and am looking forward to bonus tracks and hopefully H-Sides (or Z-Sides)

Favorite is Busted and Blue

Couldn't even tell you what my least favorite is

I feel like I just listened to an album of DAREs and I don't like DARE. Also nowhere near enough Damon, which sucks because he does fine in the roughly 5 minutes he gets on this damn thing. And to top it off I don't give a fuck about pretty much any of these features save Jehnny Beth and she feels kind of wasted on We Got The Power. Even the requisite De La Soul track was flimsy. I don't know who this album is for but it's not for me.

If you're geniunely crituqing a (shitty) vinyl rip of an album that's yet to drop in any quality sans that, you're doing the music a disservice. Wait until something in better quality leaks and then give it your judgement, but don't make out like as if the bass that's clearly missing throughout the album and the flat, tinny mixing is due to the music actually sounding that way.

The mix is far from my problem with this album. I'm not impressed by how hard a song bangs. Get back to me when Damon rewrites the damn thing from scratch.

this makes it a hundred times more cringy. imagine how good this would have been if damon would just make songs that are appropriate an older, more mature gorillaz audience. i can't believe this is what he had in mind for this thing. he really is just an out of touch old man.
>>
Everyone listening to the leak and judging it is a retard. The audio quality is awful. Why not wait for the real product to come out and then judge that? I tried listening to it yesterday but everything is really congested and then panned left by like 20 degrees. It's just an awful sound. Wait for the real thing man.. this isn't it.
>>
>>72309979
Im really enjoying the album even though the quality. I will listen this rip till the good one came out. Its not the end of the world man I grew up on cassettes

Doesn't really feel like a Gorillaz album. It's kind of all over the place. It's a shame that the first single they dropped for this thing ended up being the best song.

But like, why? Why listen to this awful rip 10 times? You will burning yourself out on the album. The real thing is barely a week away. I don't understand why so many of you are in a hurry to spoil the album. I don't want my perception of the album colored by a terrible version.

7,5/10.
Good album.
Favorite song is Hallelujah Money.
I didn't dislike none of the tracks, but i think that we got the power is weak.


The problem is that it don't feel like a gorillaz album. Really, sometimes i just want to listen Damon/2-D voice singing, not some artist that i don't even know. But the sound of the album is good, this sad dance vibe is great etc.

Self Titled is still their best. I don't like Demon Days. Plastic Beach is Good, so is The Fall.

Burning out? Im going to listen to it for the next 6 or 7 years so who knows maybe is the last Gorillaz album. And I dont want to wait til 28 april
>>
>>72309470
I mean to each their own. I'd be willing to bet that I'm about as old as the average Gorillaz listener, and I discovered them later. Demon Days (before Humanz) was easily one of my least favorite of the main albums, and everyone wants to suck that album's cock. None of the songs on it stick with me, except Feel Good, which is probably why it was overplayed as fuck.

Plastic Beach had a different sound to it than their previous two. It was notably more pop, and had way more guest artists, but it had far more memorable songs than DD.

Rhinestone Eyes
Stylo
White Flag
Empire Ants
To Binge
Some Kind of Nature (easily one of my favorite Gorillaz tracks)


Some of the tracks were kind of annoying, Sweepstakes kind of sucked a little bit, but even that was far more memorable than most of the shit on DD.

Hallelujah Money is legit the only song even close to the same caliber as their older shit.

>>72309875

are you autistic

>>
This is making Plastic Beach look like a mill dollars
>>
>>72309875
lol. these songs are just straight garbage fampai. the arrangements, composition, layering, instrumentation and overall even the "pop" sensibilities behind it are absolutely amateur. people keep dropping the name of De La Soul like it's something to be impressed with when in fact Momentz is the weakest fucking song on the album.

Also this obvious race baiting bullshit throughout the album is absolutely annoying.
>>
given that the concept is an end of the world party, I'd say maybe the album should be judged by how hard it bangs
>>
>>72310642
or an excuse for how much damon didn't give a fuck
>>
>>72310642
End of the World Party is the "concept"? I thought the concept was being non-conformist by conforming to the politically correct values set forth by society these days? They seem to make constant references to race and inequality and how fucked everything is from a social aspect.

Getting political through the entire album was the wrong fucking choice.
>>
>>72310685
The albums really not that political though if you actually listened to the lyrics. Just a few songs really.
>>
>>72308953
Not a real leak. Levels are all whack. If you consider this as good as listening to the real album then you're a fucking idiot.
>>
>>72310716
no one's considered it as good, but it's good enough to critique it you autistic cunt
>>
>>72310716
but you get the gist of the album, i mean its not like a better quality is going to changes the whole fucking album and make it a 10
>>
>>72310105
>Really, sometimes i just want to listen Damon/2-D voice singing
Then listen to one of Damon's several other projects
>>
>>72310715
At least 70 percent of the songs I have heard thus far, and I am more than halfway through, have been pretty damn politically driven.

Also, if your determination of how good an album is based on how "hard it bangs", you're a fucking pleb to no end.
>>
>>72310804
That wasn't even my determination. Different anon. I think the album is weak but I just don't see how it's politically driven.
>>
>>72310770
Exactly. When Painting With came out people nearly immediately knew whether they loved it or hated it. I loved it even when the 192 kb release came out and the low end and higher end parts were missing. The song writing and arrangement spoke to me immensely. All of these minute aspects and frequencies add a bit of flavor to the overall tone of the tracks but they don't drastically change the delivery or reception of the album to a point where it's going to greatly influence a rating.

The best thing this album has going for it, is it transitions cleanly from track to track. Literally all of the best songs were released as singles. The rest is filler as hell, every feature on this has performed subpar and severely let me down. Danny Brown and De La Soul especially. Vince Staples verses on Ascension, while I disagree with the overall message, are about the only redeeming aspects of this album, along with the other singles. Everything else feels derivative and uninspired.
>>
>>72309732
Dirty Harold.
>>
>>72310504
is the fall considered a Gorillaz album? I though it was non canon or b sides. It was recorded with an Ipad???
>>
>>72310894
Does it matter whether or not it was recorded with an iPad? It's well over 30 minutes, and if they're b-sides what are they b-sides from? It's an album bruh, just didn't have much of a PR or promotional campaign.
>>
>>72310951
And now that I think about it, it actually holds a couple of my favorite Gorillaz songs so I revoke my previous statement. And for being written on the road literally day by day, it isn't bad. He didn't prepare anything beforehand. Each song was essentially written while on the road in a day.

Little Pink Plastic Bags
Revolving Doors
Bobby in Phoenix
Aspen Forest

All are great songs, probably some of the better ones in the Gorillaz discography. Overall though, it's probably their worst album...that is until HUMANZ came around AMIRITE?

I don't fucking understand why everyone is shitting on this album this much. It's a perfectly listenable album from start to finish. Even the singles grew on me.

I only think I legitimately dislike about the album is the lack of Damon in terms of vocals. I would prefer if the features didn't basically take over the album, but the actual execution isn't bad at all.

Overall, I could care less about other people's opinions. This band seems very polarizing, due to the change in musical tone and the message of the album. I ignored that and focused on the music, and it was a pretty good album in all honesty. Too bad /mu/core is so much better.

I must say It's much better than I would have thought. The production is still pretty interesting and different from each Gorillaz Album, and some songs have really good hooks (Strobelite and Momentz for example).

It has less of a cohesion and more of mix of good songs than DD and PB, but it still flows and grooves. Wasn't expecting some deep shit anyway from the album.

So yeah, not bad really.
>>
>Favorite Song
Strobelight
>Worst Song
Momentz

I'm pleasantly surprised at how good it is. I liked most of the tracks on except Momentz, Busted and Blue felt like filler, and all the interludes didn't feel necessary. Strobelight, She's My Collar, Let Me Out, and Submission are all good tracks. I also enjoyed all the singles. Right now I'm gonna rank this higher than Plastic Beach. But none of the songs come close to tracks like Empire Antz or On Melancholy Hill.
>>
>>72313460
Strobelite would be 10/10 if Damon sang the hook. The lack of him vocally is really my only complaint so far. I love the dark party vibe and the production is interesting. The songs are poppy but unique in that classic gorillaz way. 8/10 for me.

There's only a few dance-y songs, at least in my opinion. I like the lyrics a lot too. Damon's trying something he's never taken a stab at, for a first attempt it's pretty okay.
>>
>>72313456
^^ this.

the quality of the song is astronomical to noticing details you might've missed otherwise due to something lesser, something in (noticeably) shittier quality. The only leak going around is variants of two poorly-done vinyl rips; one with the EQ levels all kinds of fucked, and one with the volume itself all kinds of fucked. Until someone brings about a CD or someone gets their digital version of the album a little earlier, we're stuck trying to review and discuss a shitty vinyl-rip of an album by a band that usually relies heavily on studio production and instrumentals that warrant high quality listening. You wouldn't listen to a metal record that leaked by way of someone ripping it too quietly. This record is a string of instrumental compositions written like hip-hop beats and to rate it accordingly without those compositions lacking its high-ends and low-ends due to the poor quality of the (only) rip going around does disservice to music in general.

I'm doing a full listen, at Charger now

This is mostly just generic nigger rap with a twangy electric beat, what the fuck. Charger is the first change from the trend but it sounds like shit, the background guitar riff is getting irritating. If they released this in 2001 in place of their self titled it would do horribly and the self titled would appeal way more to the people who crave more alt-rocky shit
>>
All the songs sound like botched demo versions you'd hear in the background of the actual album's making-of documentary

>>72314882

It gets better. Momentz through Interlude: Elevator going up is just some of the most unbearable shit I've ever heard, but the rest isn't too bad.
>>
>>72314949
If this keeps up Andromeda is probably going to be the only salvageable song on the album because it doesn't feature some literally who nigger rapping and has coherent lyrics, but I was thinking that going in. Busted and Blue is next but I didn't care for it when I listened to it when it got leaked last week

It's not even an issue with the featuring. It's that he let the feature's run roughshod over the overall feel of the album.

A lot of the songs are actually pretty good, but there isn't any sort of unified feeling like every album in the past.

I mean, for fucks sake, The Fall may have been fucking atrocious, but at least it didn't sound like a bunch of singles all thrown together.

Humanz doesn't even start hitting it's stride until about halfway in, and even then the arrangement is still kinda shit, but at least it isn't constantly shifting tones.

Just finished my whole listen.

The only worthwhile song was Andromeda, my only complaint about it is that it was mostly beat and lyric, not much in terms of instrumental.

Everything else just sounded like banger rap dogshit with Albarn kind of murmuring in the background or stupid pop shit. In both cases, Albarn is the primary vocal feature on maybe two or three of the songs? And on the rest he was just muted and edited to sound like he was on a fucking intercom. Imagine cucking your way out of your own fucking album, what a fucking mess. I'm really upset considering Gorillaz really appealed to me with nearly every album they put out, The Fall was the first album that I just couldn't enjoy and I guess it was the beginning of the end.

2/10 is what I give it, over saturation of feature artists/lack of the actual lead singer's vocals along with a lack of a coherent sound for the entirety of the album really make it terrible, or maybe the whole album being terrible is where it IS coherent.
>>
Saturnz Barz, Strobelite, Submission, Let Me Out, Andromedia, and She's My Collar are all great imo. Not sure of my least favourite, probably Charger, but need to listen a few more times. Overall it's decent, it's not like Demon Days and Gorillaz where every song is enjoyable, but it definitely has some good tracks. My main critique is not enough Damon, also it's not the smoothest or most consistent of records. Some songs I really don't like.
>>
>>72315418
I'm a sperg and don't want to deal with a shity sounding rip
>>
>>72315541

Gotta disagree here. I've enjoyed everything except Momentz, Charger, and Sex Murder Party.

Sex Murder Party isn't terrible, but feels out of place. I'm probably going to manually edit the track listing and move it up to #5, since it seems to fit more with the earlier half of the album than the later half.

Momentz and Charger are literally fucking unlistenable. I'm giving 'em a both a dozen or so more listens to see if they grow on me, but right now my plan is to just flat out delete them and pretend they're not on the album.
>>
>>72310446

I personally think that track's a bit underrated. By no means a standout but it doesn't deserve the shit it's given. I'd rather listen to Sweepstakes on repeat than pretty much anything on Humanz, no questions asked.
>>
>>72315909

Sweepstakes was not a bad song in and of itself, it just had about the worst fucking possible placement on the album it possibly could.

Damon hasn't been able to properly arrange an album since Demon days. I mean, for fucks sake, even The Magic Whip's arrangements are kinda shit.

>>72315600
but Momentz is literally the best song on the album
>>
>>72315184
nope
>>
>>72316634

I've now listened to it about 3 times and I no longer hate it, but it's still one of the weakest songs in the album, IMO.
>>
just listening to it now: i think their heavy usage of rap talent is made work by the fact that they're a British band, not an American one

So it totally works for me, each song is really innovative sounding to be honest
>>
I have no idea what the fuck they were thinking with the interludes

They're all awful. Took them out of the playlist and already it sounds better

What the fuck happened to Damon's ability to arrange? Did someone else do it for him in the past? Is he letting exec/features meddle with the track order?
>>
I fucking love this.

>finally warmed up to songs I hated (Ascension, Saturnz Barz)
>accepted I'll never like others (We Got The Power, Hallelujah Money aka absolute garbage, Let Me Out, and most of Sex Murder Party).

It's not the best Gorillaz album by any means but it's still great by today's standards. I was impressed by how innovative they got this time around with each song having its own distinct vibe. The earlier Gorillaz albums seemed to flow together more flawlessly than this one, which resulted in some unwanted shifts in musical styles I don't care for. But the fact that there were hidden gems in there like Mementos, She's My Collar, and Submission makes up for that in my book.

9/10
>>
sounds kinda faggy like a musical. you don't usually hear that with rap cause theyre all so homophobic, this is good though

Damon has worked on a shit ton of musicals in the past ten years or so though so it really shines through.

this

After first listening of the already released tracks i was like:
Saturnz Barz>We've got the Power>Hallelujah Money>Andromeda=Ascension

Then came Let it Out and i was:
Hallelujah Money>Ascension>Let Me Out>Andromeda>Saturnz Barz (Popcaan part was really starting to make me dislike the track as a whole)> We've Got the Power (got tired after a few listenings)

Now after two listens of the full album i think it is a strong 6, the best tracks were released before everything else, and the interludes don't really help. The album seems to be all over the place, kind of a party album or something like that. Really liked the themes and atmosphere of Plastic Beach and The Fall, in Humanz they blow it all to the skies for more pop appeal and catchiness with really rare exceptions. I feel that those decisions will considerably shorten the lifetime of this for me.

Too many guests, good tracks released before the rest, few 2D moments (they were all good) and too much bad singers with auto tune or/and misplaced in the song, instrumentals are pretty good.

Def one of their worst album to date, for me is Plastic Beach(10)>Demon Days=The Fall=Gorillaz(9)>D-Sides(8)>>Humanz(6)>>>G-Sides(5)

>best
Ascension, Hallelujah Money, Danny Brown on Submission, the idea of The Non-Conformist Oath, Momentz beat

After first listen, absolutely heartbroken how meh this album is. ~17 minutes are good or great, ~17 are boring or bad. So middle-of-the-road quality wise that I'm surprised it came out like this. Hopefully all the bonus tracks will allow us to make a great album on our own.

Biggest gripes are the juxtaposition of sonically fun songs with boring-ass dredges...how does a creator think one is great as well as the other?
Also the fact that the rappers/guests are badly used 92% of the time. Particularly Kali Uchis not living up to potential and Damon sounding strangely pervy on She's My Collar, Pusha T being boring as *fuck* on Let Me Out and the annoying singer on Strobelite

Gorillaz ≥ Plastic Beach > Demon Days ≥ The Fall {underrated for what it is} > Humanz, it seems
>>
I remember when Plastic Beach leaked and /mu/ collectively shat on their pants.
Six years have passed. Consider you guys have aged six fucking years, so has Damon and the world as a whole.
The album sounds as if Damon tried to make it sound more accord to the current state of music, instead of just making it just nostalgic and "making it sound like the last album", which is exactly what Damon does every five years with every new album.
Demon Days was different from Gorillaz.
Plastic Beach was different from Demon Days.
And yeah, this sounds different from Plastic Beach, makes me think a lot about Trainspotting 2's soundtrack.

I mean the album is not bad at all. But it isn't Plastic Beach.

Rating 1-10 in the context of Gorillaz, 10 doesn't mean perfection.

Also warning, I'm a huge fanboy and it's going to show.

1. Ascension: 6. Really grows on you, but I can't see past the shitty lyrics.

2. Strobelite: 9.5. I miss 2D, and I don't think it experiments enough, but it's still fucking amazing.

3. Saturnz Barz: 8.5. I hated this track initially but like with Rhinestone Eyes once you realize the vocals are just another instrument it stops bothering you.

4. Momentz: 9. Self-Titled material, in a good way. I hate the female vocals though, kinda stop this from being a 10, and the end isn't very good.

5. Submission: 7. I feel like the entire track is waiting for Brown to come, but then Brown doesn't deliver. It sounds good, but it doesn't fit the set-up. Still fun to listen to, but disappointing.

6. Charger: ?. There is no good leak of this song, but the first half is a 10 judging from the leak.

7. Andromeda: 8. Not much to say. I think other Gorillaz tracks do a better job at this kind of song.

8. Busted and Blue: 10. Melancholy Hill but without the bad decisions.

9. Carnival: 3. What the fuck was Damon thinking?

10. Sex Murder Party: 8. Really chill and enjoyable track.

11. She's My Collar: 9. Same as the above, but with Damon.

12. Hallelujah Money: 6. It's not bad, but it's also not extremely fun to listen to.

13. We Got The Power: 5. It really starts to get fucking annoying after a few listens, it's placed in a terrible place. Should have been a bonus track, but it's a bad finisher.

All said, I like Demon Days more than this, Demon Days > Humanz > Self-Titled > Plastic Beach > The Fall

Melancholy Hill is great (I'd say it's a 9), but I'm just saying it's not perfect, the vocals come in too late and the instrumentals get repetitive because of it.

"Jamaican Meme Faggot" is no different from Damon in Charger. Just think about it.

What did he mean by this?

anti capitalism statement
>>
>>72320953
We are evil because we care more about money than morals.

This important moral comes with an album that costs money, or a youtube video with ads.

The irony goes past Damon's head for some reason.

Why does Strobelite sound like a 90s cartoon intro?

yeah we are pretty fucked up by capitalism

fuck off reddit

he's tryna be an anticapitalist while still making millions off ur cash basically

Personally, I'm really disappointed. I hope the bonus tracks are good, I only liked less than half of the album

>>72321374
Why Trump face? That's a liberal, blue pilled anti-capitalist song
>>
It's okay, after five listens it grew a bit on me. It's like Plastic Beach 2, which is as bad as it sounds.
>>
>>72321393

I feel like Trump would listen to that song and while laughing and eating a taco bowl. Trump just mocks all the hate he gets
>>
>>72321237
at least its something

Oh you might be right. I've found the album to sound quite good up until Busted And Blue. The amount of crackle and distortion is disgusting lol.

>>72321807
Genuinely curious. Why do you care about Anthony and his ratings? His thoughts are interesting to listen to, sure, but he's discredited himself as a legitimate reviewer plenty of times. This board seems obsessed with the man despite the ///patrician/// attitude around here.

I would have thought she was deactivated with "I turned my robot off"

Saturnz Barz has some decent instrumentals, but I can agree with that. My favorite phase one track was double bass. They simply just need more dick slapping bass.
>>
>>72321880

He built himself up as the anti-Pitchfork and he embraced the memes around him. Of course mu would love him. and mu gets off to whenever he shits on an album that mu loves

>5/10
>Andromeda
>Everything else, but Andromeda carries the album

The entire production of the album, from the sound to the tracklist to the album cover itself are not very Harambez imo. The album cover looks like it was rendered in real time on a PS2. Other anons have described the sound of the album best - "all over the fucking place." Not good.

Still, Andromeda on its own more than makes up for how garbage the rest of the album is.
>>
>>72322360

I haven't listened to the leak yet, but I'm worried about lots of people saying Andromeda is the best song. Andromeda is a good song, but it's a pretty basic Gorillaz song. If Andromeda is the absolute best this album has to offer, that doesn't exactly sound promising
>>
Thinking maybe not worth $100+ for a concert of this shit.
>>
Just bought my tickets, got good seats for 50 bucks. Do they play older stuff when they tour or do they just stick to the current album? I'm fine with either, just curious
>>
>>72322591
Depends on the tour. Last ones I saw were specifically for albums. I'd assume it'd be a nearly complete set of Humanz and a few older tracks here and there.
>>
>>72322605
Even if they only play one old song I'll be pleased. Thanks for the info.
>>
listened to it through for the first time last night and was definitely underwhelmed
like many others ITT, the static and poor mastering was a major distracting force
the features were either poorly utilized (Grace Jones, Danny Brown, Kali Uchis, De La) or completely unnecessary (Pusha T, Jenny Beth)
listened to it a second time through this morning and like it a bit more, but still not in love with it
Looking forward to hearing the CDQ

>Best tracks
Strobelite
Ascension
Saturnz Barz
Andromeda

>worst
Charger (but this could easily change given a better mastering)
Let Me Out (Pusha T is by no mens interesting here)
Submissions (same goes for Danny Brown and Kelela)
Momentz (just because a De La feature comes with higher standards)
Carnival (yaaawn)

agreed

Honestly liked this more than Demon Days. Maybe I need to relisten that and then get to other albums, but currently my opinion persists.
