The Gorillaz
"The Gorillaz" (CD)

The debut album from Damon Albarn's "virtual" rock band is also their best. Done.
Although their next album garnered even more attention and attracted the talents of Danger Mouse as producer I still feel that the first album was a more perfect incarnation of the lunacy and spectacle that Albarn was going for. There was radio-friendly fare ("Tomorrow Comes Today") and plunges into the surreal ("Latin Simone" and "M1 A1") that Albarn never really went for since. Which is too bad.
