Gorillaz's: Demon Days. You may have seen this album cover before. Maybe even a parody of it from your favorite artist. But what is exactly this album, "Demon Days"? Well, simply put, its the album that pushed #Gorillaz to National Acclaim. WAIT! SCRAP THAT. To continental Acclaim. WAIT SCRAP THAT ALSO! To INTERNATIONAL ACCLAIM!
Leaded by #DamonAlbarn, Gorillaz is a music group that uses an "Anime Group" image and #Japanese #Aesthetics to bring a whole new level of connection between the artist and fans. They give all 4 of their main characters names, personalities, and hell, even Backstories! They've run with this idea ever since, and is now considered as one of the most "#HYPEBEASTS" music groups of this generation.
But what about the music content of Demon Days? Well, Gorillaz cant really be classified as just one genre. To do so would be criminal. Yes, I know leader #Albarn is known for Alt Rock, but he also uses almost EVERY GENRE heavily throughout this album. Especially Hip Hop, Pop, and even experimental. Some artists featured here are: #MFDOOM, #DeLaSoul, and the helpful legendary producing mind of #DangerMouse.
What we get as the final product are crazy, quirky, feel good songs. Like "Dare", "Dirty Hairy, and the classic, "Feel Good Inc".
Packaged with its Anime infused culture and music videos, its an album to go down in history as simply: "Special".
