DOWNLOAD Gorillaz – The Now Now [iTunes Plus M4A] (2018) Album Zip
For the first time in his career, we find Damon Albarn on the back foot. Since he and Blur swooned their way onto the scene in the early ‘90s, Albarn’s discography is remarkably free of absolute missteps. Sure, Blur didn’t cover themselves in glory on the half-arsed 2003 album ‘Think Tank’, and who actually has listened to much-derided side-project The Good, The Bad and The Queen. Gorillaz’ last album, 2017’s ‘Humanz’, however, is where things get a bit tricky.
Released six years after their last album ‘The Fall’, it’s fair to say that people were just a little bit excited. In a time of political turmoil, the madness of the world’s sketchiest band felt sorely needed. Hopefully, ‘Humanz’ was going to help us make sense of the world, too. It didn’t, sadly. For fans and causals alike, it felt like Albarn slipped into the background too often, allowing guests like Noel Gallagher, Popcaan and Rag’N’Bone Man take the lead in places. The band have wilfully chosen to occupy their space in another dimension throughout their career, but ‘Humanz’ got caught in the cosmic doorway.
