    Didn't like this at all. Too dark and melancholy....and boring. I don't think his voice suits that kind of style. Prefer Gorillaz any day...even the few Blur songs I know

    The debut album of Blur and Gorillaz frontman. It is clear that he is aiming for the same melancholic mood of Plastic Beach, my favorite Gorillaz album. He partially succeeds.

    The lyrics and Damon's vocal performance are pretty great, while the music is a little lacking. It's not as diverse as Plastic Beach, not as memorable, and it's a little boring especially that it doesn't capture

    Of course there are tracks that i liked, and will continue to listen to in the foreseeable future; unfortunately they are few in number. These tracks are: Lonely Press Play, The Selfish Giant, and You & Me.

    Not exactly what I expected from such an exciting person. The album is on the quiet side. And where is the fun? Seriously, it sounds like a batch of old songs that he never dared to release.

    Albarn aficionados will, of course, lap it up, but for the rest of us, think of it more along the lines of a faintly beguiling curio in an otherwise fascinating career. [No. 109, p.52]
  2. The relationship between the music and Albarn’s voice deepens the album’s theme.

    The result is an album that humanizes the machine and peels back a layer from Albarn's life while adding more to the music.
