I laughed out loud when I heard Snoop on the second track.
Not a huge Gorillaz fan, but I gave it a listen and liked it. As an album its amazing. They really got that whole plastic beach theme going on and when I finished listening, I was like damn thats a clear musical experience...not just a collection of songs.
Orchestral opening and some orchestral interludes gave it an awesome feel. I really saw this album as cool hip hop/electronic/unique beats with people doing a mix of singing/talking/rapping over them. It doesn't follow that standard verse - hook -verse - hook - verse structure which is nice.
My favorite tracks were the rap laden ones naturally, the two mos def ones and white flag
its super sick but by far the best transition is in "some one's missing from the new mgmt album" every time i listen to that i legitimately trip out its amazing
