Plastic Beach by Gorillaz
Released: Mar 2010
Label: Parlophone UK
The virtual band gets even more out of touch with anything resembling reality on their third album. Much of Plastic Beach matches the surreal landscape the title suggests: the noise painting "Glitter Freeze" (sounds just like you'd expect a, uh, glitter freeze to); the trippy Beach Boys buzz of "Empire Ants." But this time there's no "Feel Good Inc" to hang your hat on: Single "Stylo" is alienating '80s synth-pop that only gets weirder with Bobby Womack. You know you're not in Kansas anymore when De La Soul provides a reality check -- on a track called "Superfast Jellyfish," no less.
