My love for this album is undoubtedly a bit sentimental, as it was maybe the first album that I listened to enough as an adolescent to more-or-less memorize. All these years later, however, it still strikes me as a pretty stunning accomplishment.

It’s not quite unified enough to be considered a concept album without the animations to offer a semblance of a storyline; but an overarching mood of anarchic joy (and occasionally even hope) amid lyrics shot through with apocalyptic dread makes its constant hopping between genres and tones surprisingly organic, and endlessly compelling. Though its lead singles (Feel Good Inc., Dirty Harry, DARE) are catchy enough to easily stand on their own merits, listening to Demon Days as a whole clarifies the purposeful inclusion and strategic placement of even its slighter tracks, especially the one-two punch of “All Alone” and “White Light.” I rarely (if ever) listen to those songs on their own, but I think their respective tones are absolutely essential within the context of the album’s larger musical ambitions.

Finally, I’ll offer a shout-out to what I consider the most underrated track: “Every Planet We Reach is Dead.” The funky main riff is as catchy as anything on the singles, and the way the song gradually builds to Ike Turner’s white-hot piano playing backed up with strings and perfectly-deployed synths make it one of my most-played songs ever.

It's incredibly rare to see an album capture the spirit of the post 9/11 world so well. As the generation who grew up in this age of terrorism and fear become adults, this may well end up being remembered as one of the greatest of all time.

Great first half of the album. It loses abit of its energy towards the end and goes conceptual all of a sudden, doesn't really work in my book. Good nonetheless.

This is a really great album from one of the bleakest eras of music. The rating speaks for itself.

From DeusExMackia 12/03/2017 19:22
The mid-noughties needed a fresh, invigorating album; this was it.

One of the most important albums of the past 20 years and the crowning jewel of Gorillaz's eclectic back catalogue. A mood board of urban decay and discontent with the present, played to the tune of a unique and superbly delivered blend of hip-hop, alternative rock and dance.

Listen in to the lyrics and you'll find an apt summary of the modern world that rings truer day by day. Listen to the music, and you'll find some of the most brilliantly innovative experiments ever recorded; the wondrously climax of 'Kids With Guns', the dirty and rough edge on 'O Green World', the stellar hip-hop beat of 'Dirty Harry', the timeless and perfect baseline on 'Feel Good Inc', the loneliness of 'El Mañana', the disco-reimagined undertones of 'DARE', the blues and folk inspirations of 'Fire Coming Out Of The Monkey's Head', and the gorgeous inclusion of the London Community Gospel Choir on 'Don't Get Lost In Heaven' and the title track.

It would be a feat for even the most adept of artist to include half of the genres on this album in one record, and yet here are Albarn, Danger Mouse and Co incorporating all of it onto one record. Than in itself is a remarkable achievement.

The real achievement, however, of Demon Days is what it captures; a dark, brooding snapshot of the modern world. This is was one of the first 'new music' albums that really captivated me when I first got it from the iTunes store in 2005, and it's grown on me as I have grown up alongside. Demon Days is a fixture, a feature of recent history and modern culture.

A cultural landmark, Demon Days takes almost all genres mixes it with spectacular success. The last three tracks are some smoothest transitions ever made.

From SamNassiri98 08/17/2017 10:21
Usually this kind of music isn't really my style, and I won't act like I have any significant knowledge of the genre to add to this review but what I do know is that I like this album, a lot. Multiple genres are effortlessly combined together and compliment eachother perfectly in both epic and touching fashion. The beats are fantastic, the bass lines striking and the lyrics absurd.

Favourite: El Manana, Feel Good Inc, Kids with Guns, Dirty Harry, November Has Become, Dare

Least Favorite: Demon Days, Fire Coming Out of a Monkey's Head
