Welcome to a new post series on this blog, ‘Reconstructed’, where I take a concept and I try to reconstruct it, and make it a better product. Might as well make this the last part of a Gorillaz trilogy. I am reconstructing Humanz.
And this is what my album retrospective was leading into! The Now Now surprised me when it came out when it probably shouldn’t have. Look at Gorillaz release pattern. One major album, and then a second one. We’ve had B Side compilations, and we have had albums recorded in the space of just over a month on tour. Now…we have an album. How does it sound?
One of my earliest memories is listening to Gorillaz. I was 4 years old when I first heard a Gorillaz song, that song being 19/2000. It was so different from anything I had ever heard up until that point. It was catchy, it was energetic, it was poppy. In my room, I have a bunch of loose CD’s, and among them is my first CD; and it was 19/2000. 17 years later, I still have it. When I think of moments that changed me, I consider when I first heard that song to be one of those moments.
I’ve been doing Raise The Steaks for a long time now, and it is harder and harder to write them, as I tend to go to the same restaurants a lot of the time. There’s only so many times one can review The Micklehead Green. Today, however, I am going to review local Ormskirk Pub ‘The Kicking Doney’ to see how they will raise the steaks.
Well, I am sorry to keep you waiting on part 3 of the Alice Cooper Track By Track. I honestly have very little to say about those albums. Also, I’ve been away for a while!
