  1. What’s particularly interesting about Demon Days is not that they have half of a good record--there are plenty of albums that can’t even manage that--it’s that it’s so clearly the first half.
  2. Surprisingly, Albarn's vocals, phoned-in and incredibly flat, weigh the record down.
  3. About as disappointing a follow-up as you could ever imagine.
