Gorillaz | Demon Days
Exquisitely relaxed beats power a gentle, multilayered production from DJ Danger Mouse (who got the gig after his Grey Album blew up). Damon Albarn's melancholy vocals circle like a vulture above a youthful soundscape of piano, '80s samples, strings, celebrity cameos, and even a children's choir. The band and album are both genre-defying, way more so then the original self-titled release. Some highlights are "Feel Good Inc." which is sort of like an old school hip hop tune with a lot of bounce and "Dare" which is sort of like the popular scissor sisters track from last summer, except it's way better. - NW/DK
