It's OK. My problem with Albarn is that he was lucky enough to find people who really understood his music and then stopped working with them. Graham Coxon and Dave Rowntree completely *get* Albarn while Alex James rubs him up the right wrong way (if that makes sense). 20 years from the first Gorillaz album, I still find myself mentally inserting what I imagine they could have done with the songs.

I need to listen to this again because it is a very different kind of album and I was put off by the terrible 20 minute bonus track.
