This is the album for the baby child of the ear not atchuned to the sound of the metal or the
addult cotempry purepop yet. As a album for the music teething baby humanz it get pos mark but
I as EvilEyez am no longer the tit sucker baby (I wish!). I rate as the EvilEyez (adult EvilEyez) so
this get a 1/5 today.

Love this. People have to see that this is Damon's project. The transition of the Gorillaz sound is totally his baby, love it or hate it. If you want new Damon sounding like old Damon, go listen to the Magic Whip (which is also great).

The biggest problem with Humanz lies in how underdeveloped so much of the material sounds. Half-baked trip-hop ideas aplenty, and too many of the songs fly by, hardly leaving much of an impression. "Ascension" and "Carnival" are decent, but don't really go anywhere beyond what you hear in their first 15-30 seconds. "Charger" is good and sees an appropriate use of a collaboration, and "Busted and Blue" is slower and more atmospheric than the rest. "Andromeda" and the closer both benefit by being quick, enjoyable pop songs, but a lot of the other tracks lack enough interesting elements that made much of their first three albums so rewarding to listen to. There are many guest appearances, which makes the underwhelming nature of this even more disappointing. Some of them are even the worst and most grating moments of the album, like the screeching vocals in "Momentz" and second half of "Submission." I've never been a fan of breaking up an average length album like Humanz (40-50 minutes) with a 10 second interlude every two songs, and the real songs being short much of the time all makes for a pretty underwhelming experience. Still, there is a fair amount of enjoyable sounds throughout. You just have to get past a good amount of filler and interludes to find them.

So... if that album cover looks like Let it Be could this mean this is Gorillaz' last album?

This is painfully bad. Crappy wanna be club beats with some pretty terrible contributions from featured guests while Damon overprocesses his voice to the point that he his incomprehensible. This of course is split up by equally crappy interludes to make the track list span 20 songs. What the effin eff Gorillaz?

"If this is their political album it'll be shite. Sanctimonious bubble dwelling bullshit crafted by self absorbed detached arseholes. The melodies will be a hard 5 though tbh." -the same dude who literally had a mental breakdown defending gorillaz from all criticism ever when hallelujah money was dropped and people recognized it as garbage.

|2.0 poor||MonotoneMop | April 28th 17|
This is the first time an album created by a group of fictional cartoon characters backed by two middle-aged british guys turns out pretty much the way you'd expect.
|2.5 average||Spiral Skies | April 28th 17|
There's some great cuts, some meh ones, and too many collaborations lending to a cluttered and underwhelming experience. Needs more sonic experimentation and trip hop textures / instrumentation from the previous two. Check out the bonus tracks, they're gems.
|2.0 poor||DIMS | April 28th 17|
my biggest problem with this album is that pretty much every track doesn't feel like a gorillaz one. they lack identity. however, even if they had their identity well defined, the album would have been just average, anyway. the concept is tepid, the lyrics don't really connect that well with each other, the runtime is way too long, some of the guests don't do anything special to justify their presence and even the production feels lazy more often that not. it's sort on standouts as well. it has a couple of good songs, but where are the great ones like we had on previous albums? 2+
|3.0 good||KrunkChicken | April 28th 17|
This honestly is not a bad record. In no way is it earth-shattering, but it feels like a collaboration album between Albarn and a variety of other artists. This seems to be what they were going for. The album provides an outlet for other artists to shine all while letting Albarn further explore his skills as a collaborative producer. I'm sure it won't place too high on my year-end list, but I appreciate the output regardless.
|3.0 good||P0laris | April 28th 17|
Although it's pale in comparison to the likes of Demon Days, Plastic Beach, and their
debut, it still stands as a major improvement superseding their last record. Overall, it's a worthy
addition to their discography, and hopefully they'll only get better from here on out. Keep your fingers
Final Rating: 3/5

man every time I want to raise the rating on this I can't help but think about how
terrible Charger or We Got the Power are
|3.0 good||Christopher Geriak | April 26th 17|
This feels like a "greatest hits" of the decades best hip hop artists rather than a Gorillaz album. Still though, some really good stuff on here.
|3.5 great||FlipTrackz | April 25th 17|
Oh my gosh the last song shits the bed. We Got the Power was an okay song but in the context of the album, it undercuts the entire theme. Really disappointing because aside from a few drab songs, this album has a really cool concept.
|3.5 great||ciregno | April 24th 17|
It's an upgrade from the Fall, but it's got way too many guest appearances and not enough Damon.
The times when Damon sings, are truly the highlights. Some of the collaborators I feel don't mesh
well with the Gorillaz sounds (that Pusha T song in particular). It doesn't sound like a Gorillaz
album and more of a "Collaborator featuring Gorillaz" than anything. I also think Damon has gotten
a bit too dependent on synths for this album which I think was the biggest issue with the Fall
(too dependent on iPad). What made the first 2-3 albums so fun and appealing was the diversity of
instrumentation and vocals. Overall some solid tracks and ideas, but mostly lacking depth and
texture. Maybe it'll grow though.
EDIT: Just want to add after seeing them play these songs live, it works way way better in a live
setting. The studio versions lack that energy of the live renditions. Bummer really.
|1.5 very poor||DORBUSCUS | April 24th 17|
As a fan of this band, I gotta say this has to be the SECOND most dull album they've released. Of
course the first being The Fall. The over abundance of terrible rappers on nearly every song is
seriously annoying. Popcan or whatever on the single "Saturnz Barz" is one of the worst things
I've ever heard. His auto tuned "voice" absolutely ruined an otherwise good song. Seriously
Gorillaz, you had 6 years and it seems like everyone else featured on this thing wrote and
recorded it for you! Super disappointing
