|My Gorillaz Albums List WORST to BEST|
Gorillaz was a virtual band created by blur musician Damon Albarn and artist Jamie Hewlett. A combination of multiple genres, Gorillaz has amassed an extraordinarily large cult following of fans, who became attracted to it's slick production, eclectic genre variety, and mythos surrounding the fictional band members. Here is my list of their albums ranked from Worst to Best.
A mostly electronic album, Gorillaz would begin a long hiatus until 2017 after releasing this album. While it certainly wasn't horrible, it was by far the lowest point for Gorillaz, who seemed utterly bored at making albums at this point. The production was good sure, but it lacked Gorillaz usual tenacity and energy
Combining elements of Alternative Rock and Hip-Hop their self-titled became a commercial juggernaut and established Gorillaz as an interesting and original concept worth looking into. The album had many excellent singles, like "Clint Eastwood" and "Rock the House". The problem lay in the non-singles, which felt like filler, lacking the same creativity as the album's singles.
A combination of Hip-Hop, R&B, and Electronic music, Humanz was the first album Gorillaz had released in 6 years. As would be expected, the time leading up to the release was filled with speculation and hype. It was filled with some great songs and amazing production from a variety of producers. Still, it felt as if Damon was rusty from not doing Gorillaz type music for so long, and some songs seemed to veer off into uninteresting territory. That doesn't stop Humanz from being an amazing comeback album.
After five years, Gorillaz made a return to release two new studio albums over two years. The first was Plastic Beach. A brilliant mixture of Pop, Hip Hop, and Trip Hop; Plastic Beach featured Gorillaz at their most energetic and stylish, featuring an absolutely massive amount of guest stars from Lou Reed to Snoop Dog. From great tracks to an amazing sound, Plastic Beach was one of Gorillaz' bests!
This was Gorillaz at their creative zenith. From it's amazing collection of singles like "Feel Good Inc" and "Dirty Harry", to it's amazing album centered songs like "White Light" and "Forever Has Come". Demon Days featured the best of the best in Gorillaz material. It was creative, organic, energetic, original, and a great way of establishing Gorillaz as a mainstay in popular culture for the next decade.
|I have a backlog of Lists I was making while doing my Buckethead project. Here's one of em, this was another requested list from you guys. It's good to be doing my regular lists again.|
|lol debut is their best|
|switch 2 and 4 and i'll agree with ya.|
|Same as my ranking |
|your ranking sucks too|
|5 - 3 - 2 - 4 - 1. 4-1 is equally acceptable. Any other ranking isn't.|
|I honestly don't get the Plastic Beaches hate. It's so freaking good|
|It's incredibly inequal. Such as any Gorillaz album actually.|
|Plastic Beach is might be their best and is the most consistent. It has less stand outs though I would say personally.|
|2 4 1 3|
The Fall would probably be last but I'll never know
|you like demon days but not self titled? impossible. the nonsingle's beats/production set up the whole vibe of the album. i'd take new genius and sound check over any single. also m1a1 was the first song to annoy and impress me at the same time. |
"lol debut is their best" true but i gave em both 5
|I found many of the nonsingles in s/t incredibly boring. Demon Days may have the same vibe and style, but it improves on the faults of the s/t. It's not impossible. THey are not the same album.|
|Hmm I don't consider White Light a good song|
|Humanz is so so bad|
|Humanz is the only album that lacks consistency. The Fall is consistently alright. Plastic Beach is consistently good. Demon Days is consistently incredible. Humanz is only consistent in it's inconsistency. How it can go from absolute bangers like 'She's My Collar' to the painfully mediocre 'Momentz' is so un-Gorillaz. There are songs on Humanz I like more than any of the tracks on the ST. But they're so few and far between it's ridiculous. Switch 3 and 4 and I can dig it.|
|4 is 1|
