Impulse Buy Of The Month: Gorillaz - Demon Days


As most of you know, I love music. Most of what I pick up is to fill in the gaps in my 80's knowledge (yes, there are cavernous gaps in some areas like Latin and Bluegrass.) So when I take a risk on something newer, it comes with quite some research... usually.

I had this nice gift card burning a hole in my wallet for the few weeks and I knew that I'd wind up picking up White Stripes' Elephant on CD and expected to grab another one of theirs to compare. That was until I caught the video for Gorillaz' "Feel Good Inc." which features De La Soul. The dark dance groove and eerie vocals drove me ape shyt. To get a better idea of what I mean check out their website and look for where it says 'Watch The Dare Video' (next to 'Join The Mailing List'.) In there is a Box Office with a bunch of their videos including "Feel Good Inc." I need to listen to the album a few more times (I'm only part way through it now) to give a review of it but I just can't get the single out of my head.

I very much enjoy the Gorillaz. Good pick on the CD. Isn't it nice to splurge occasionally... you are certainly deserving.

I checked out the website... not bad. I have heard "Feel Good Inc." before, it was better paired with the video. I watched a few of the other videos, I think they're songs you really need to hear more than once to get into. I'll have to give a listen again.

I like the Gorillaz, but I'm still not sure about the new disk. I picked up the first album because of Clint Eastwood. The rest of it is decent, but I've heard better albums.

I'll have to check out the website. I'm not familiar with the group, so I have some catching up to do.

GO Gorillaz! That song rocks. I want to pick up the CD too. Let me know how it goes!

You know you scored some brownie points, right? ;)

The Gorillaz rock! I haven't bought a CD in a while. I'll give that one a go.

Btw, "Feel Good Inc." is now a #1 hit for Gorillaz on the Modern Rock chart.
