Demon Days

I'm very impressed with Gorillaz' new album Demon Days. It's a strong album, all the way through - perhaps stronger than the self-titled debut. Yeah, there are some annoying Casio keyboard moments, but the overall production is very good. With the exception of the rapping, it sounds like an extension of Think Tank and this album has some of Damon's best vocals yet. Clearly this is his project (strings, piano, keyboards over beats), but he lets friends like De La Soul and Danger Mouse do their thing when necessary. I'm a big fan of the single "Feel Good Inc." and hopefully that friggin' iPod commercial won't ruin that for me. Aside from "Feel Good," the best tracks are "El Manana" and "Demon Days." Great album, worth picking up.
