GORILLAZ / The Fall [2011]

Virtual hip-hop band the Gorillaz, being the "digital era" group that they are, were destined to release a free digital album eventually.
Produced late at night in hotel rooms while Damon Albarn was on tour supporting the Plastic Beach album, The Fall doesn't include the usual mob of guest musicians as previous albums do (with the exception of The Clash's Mick Jones & Paul Simonon).
The end result sounds exactly like what it should be. Late night hotel room fun with a case of beer and cigarettes, resulting in a moody sonic spectral of bleeps and bloops. It's not great but it's an interesting listen. It captures the sound of late night experimentation perfectly.
