In my book the Gorillaz have never failed to deliver an album short of praise. Each album an anthem of its time, working in the sounds we subconsciously associated with the group : down-tempo rapping, high-pitched crooning, disco synths over loping reggae bass lines, yet always in a completely new way. Plastic Beach brings together the iconic sounds of Snoop Dogg, De La Soul, Lou Reed, the Clash’s Mick Jones among other classics into more laid back vibe. I am really feeling the Lou Reed feature of “Some Kind of Nature”. Check it out below.
