Gorillaz 

Plastic Beach (Virgin)

Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett's twisted collective are back for their electro-funky third studio album. Albarn, who claims Plastic Beach is about the refuse of a disposable culture, makes no waste of the beast with over a dozen collaborators. Returning artists Mos Def and De La Soul are joined by Snoop Dogg, Mick Jones, Lou Reed and the Lebanese National Orchestra for Oriental Arabic Music. Exploding with more energy than Demon Days, but saturated by a tidal melancholy throughout, Plastic Beach is Albarnist pop at its best, a musical Cannonball Run with Brit-pop sensibilities. Also returning are the animated Gorillaz cast, drawn by Hewlett, in a new story that takes the celluloid band from the pits of hell, to a remote island on the far side of the Earth, to the end of the world itself.
