New Gorillaz album nothing to go ape shit over

Why does is seem like every single music critic is jerking off to Demon Days?

I mean its above average when you compare it to other albums that have been released in recent months, but its definitely not a classic (I wouldn't even call it a solid album) and kind of a disappointment after the first album. But if you are a procrastinator like me, than its worth buying for the fun extra features on the CD.

All in all, the creative packaging and marketing doesn't make up for an inferior album. It won't make you want to lock yourself up in your house, playing Donkey Kong and listening to "Double Bass" on repeat like the first album will.

It makes you wonder why they put this quote on the first page of the free comic book that comes with the album....

"Every great band is destroyed by their success..."

ive given it like 3 listens today. its maybe a 6 or 7. the first album (automator produced) was MUCH better. how can you drop automator for danger mouse? i mean come on.

anyways its OK, the single and a few other tracks really do bang though.

i keep getting the feeling that they wanted to mimic the first one but wanted to make it more 'quirky', but it felt too forced.

the new weezer sucks, but its been 4 weeks and im still playing the new common.
