    "Gorillaz Music for Dummies." It's crazy to think that Gorillaz has been putting out records to dance to for the past decade. If you haven't heard any of these songs, you haven't been out much. I do recommend checking out the albums Gorillaz (self-titled), Demon Days, and Plastic Beach for your ear's pleasure.

    A collection of all the favorites so far? How could this album have any negatives to it? A great collection of some of my favorite Gorillaz tracks throughout the years, and now I dont even have to make a specific playlist to loop some of the best the group has put out!

    Not one of them [the 15 singles on this album] sounds dated. [#39, p. 72]
  2. Their synthbeat-meets-comi​x concept got over as pop because it found a mildly playful and pleasurable way to enact well-meaning self-effacement.

    Gorillaz helped re-unite both indie and pop with that most Paul Morley's jowl-wobbling of things: the abstract.
