I remember reading an issue of NME once and it had an article about Gorillaz’ latest album The Fall. In this article there’s an explanation that Damon Albarn gives about the album saying that recent one is all about 2D’s sound whereas the previous ones connected in personality to the other members. Russel to Gorillaz, Noodle to Demon Days, and Murdoc to Plastic Beach.
The more I thought about it, the more I thought that Damon Albarn was a genius! He must have planned it since the beginning since all just works. The brilliant beats in Gorillaz that go by Russel’s drumming. The calm and darkness of Noodle in Demon Days. The crazy upbeat feel of Plastic Beach reflecting that of Murdoc. Finally, the complication and thoughts of 2D in The Fall.
It’s wonderfully amazing, don’t you think? ♥
