That song is as annoying as a few on the Neon Neon album. In fact, it's hard to tell them apart. Not a great lead off to promote the album, IMO.

I'm not feeling it so far from what I've listened. I loved their self titled album, and Demon Days was a step backwards in my opinion, and this is even further with more of the dance feel to it.

I think this will be like Demon Days for me, I didn't love it the first play through but the more I listened to it the more I liked it - it's my fav Gorillaz album now. The only thing with Plastic Beach is that it doesn't have that 1 knock it out of the park single ala Clint Eastwood or Feel Good, Inc to get you pumped about it, Stylo and Superfast Jellyfish really didn't do it for me. Rhinestone Eyes on the other hand is the shit!

The whole album is available to stream on the NPR website and has leaked at all the usual spots to download...so it's out there if you wanna hear it.

Be careful, most of those leaks are fakes.

I like Rhinestone Eyes a lot. There are lots of great beats on this album. Some of it reminds me of the Stereo MCs...

Fantastic so far, and I'm only about halfway through. Definitely will have this one on release day.

I forgot this was coming out. For shame. I'm excited to get it a week from now though. I may listen to some of the tracks on NPR (but not all).

The whole thing is pretty freakin' great. And the video for Stylo is awesome.

A 45 minute "Making Of" and a portal to web content (including new songs?).

Love this album.

I feel like I'm watching some really cool live theater production or musical as I listen to each track.

The more I listen to this, the more I like it. I think it might be the best Gorillaz album, which is something because I loved Demon Days.

Listening to the NPR first listen again (only was able to listen halfway before) and it's really growing on me. I might just have to pick this one up, since I have the previous two albums.

Using B&N member code X8F8A9L, for 10% off, in combination with my membership discount I ordered the Special Edition of the album with the CD and DVD for $15.33 with free expedited shipping. I suggest anyone wanting the deluxe version who has a B&N account to go this route. It's a lot better than paying the $21 Amazon wants and I'm sure in store prices are higher everywhere. It's $22 at Target for those curious ($14 for the regular edition). For only a few dollars more than Amazon's regular edition price I made sure I got the version I really wanted to have.

Picked it up today and gave it a good listen and then went back to my favorites. I like it, but my big issue with it is that Damon sounds like a guest star on his own album.

I was immediately drawn to the Damon tracks as I bought it because I wanted a new Damon Albarn album, not a mix tape that happens to have a few Damon tracks on it. I understand that's not where he was going with it, but in that regards it's a bit of a disappointment.

For what it is, though, it's an excellent album.

I've only listened to it all the way through twice, but it seems like it got a lot more Damon-y toward the end.

I'm thinking maybe he was going for a side A/side B type of thing where side A is about the guests and the beats and side B is more about Albarn's own perspective.

As far as where it sits amongst the other Gorillaz albums I'd say the jury is still out for me.

Ended up getting the MP3 version off of Amazon for $7.99. Deluxe editions of albums are alright, but I rarely seem to ever watch the DVDs or whatever. For a price that low, I can't complain.
