Each song has a catchy hook to hang on, to reach the surface of the plastic beach. My favourites are: Stylo, Empire Ants, On Melancholy Hill and Broken.

From Kurtco
Third part of the Gorillaz saga, "Plastic Beach" allows Damon Albarn to continue his progress in experimental hip-hop and electronic music. Announced by its author as the most pop album of Gorillaz, it is actually the least accessible record of the band, influenced by hip-hop. Dark, twisty and twisted, "Plastic Beach" is nevertheless hypnotizing. With huge featurings (Lou Reed, Snoop Dogg, Mark E. Smith of The Fall, Mos Def, Bobby Womack, Mick Jones and Paul Simonon of Clash), the album comes with a funny concept: after the destruction of the studios Kong of the band, the album was recorded on an island of garbage abandoned by humans, located at Point Nemo. Dark, daring and influenced by hip-hop: so I really liked this Gorillaz album, one of the best with "Demon Days".

9/10

Best track: "On Melancholy Hill"

I want to agree that the atmosphere on this album is probably the greatest thing about it. The album is almost rather a various artists effort than really a Damon Albarn project, but still the album is very consistent with its sound. Which is probably the reason for this unique atmosphere.

Plastic beach bites of a little more it can chew, but it has some incredibly rewarding moments.

Definitely a grower. At first listen it might sound a bit messy and as an overload of ideas but for every listen it becomes more cohesive and consistent. Great album.

To me, the best album by gorillaz. This album has a lot more vitality than demon days, and sounds more expanded.
Favs: empire ants, rhinestone eyes, on melancholy hill, broken, stylo
