Gorillaz White Flag, July 10, Rhinestone Eyes. Well with certain Gorillaz writers gone, I guess somebody has to tell the band's saga right? I have returned, but don't expect constant updates, there may be long gaps between entries as I have many other projects going on such as my band Room 13, check us out on Soundcloud Despite it being track 3, it is the first time we are hearing Damon's "2D" voice fully on the album. This is unusual for a Gorillaz album at this point in their discography, Gorillaz White Flag in the past 2D has usually opened the album himself.
However, on this record, the record was opened by orchestras, brass, Snoop Dogg, a full band arrangement, it's all fleshed out On track 2, he's not there at all vocally at least. So finally on track 3, Gorillaz White Flag get the Grant Green Idle Moments Gorillaz opening track; dark, gloomy Gorillaz White Flag tone setting for what horrible things are to come.
Now, don't get me wrong, I love both the Alice In Chains MTV Unplugged tracks on this record, but it certainly was an Gorillaz White Flag twist to not have 2D right there with us at the beginning of this tale.
So, in a way, these tracks make a triad of openers for the album. For you see, "Plastic Beach" is at it's heart, a rock opera told in Gorillaz White Flag fragments, a lot of it's story on record is communicated through moods and instrumental motifs we'll get to those later.
