    The Now Now is a pleasant mood album while it's on-especially in comparison to Humanz-but it's still relatively low-impact.

The issue isn't that Melon believes what he believes, the issue is that he ham-fisted his beliefs into an album review that has nothing to do with politics, leaving everyone with a bad taste in their mouth within the first five seconds

I think most of the songs Damon sang in on the Humanz (even if there were only like four), were really good, especially sleeping powder. I think more of the songs on here are really good too! This album definitely beats humanz on the sole purpose it didn’t have enough 2D. I like it, but I do miss plastic beach and demon days

I have to admit, Humanz was probably the worst XD I mean I liked 2 songs from it, but that was it, which is pretty sad. But The Now Now is amazing, and I think it's clear that Gorillaz is trying to return back to it's roots, which everyone loved. Personally, humility, tranz, Idaho and Lake Zurich are my favourites, with Tranz being to me, the most Gorillaz's like music I've heard it a long time released by Gorillaz.

I think maybe if you knew the context of the virtual world of the Gorillaz, mainly 2D's storyline better, you'd understand why the album is so "moody" and like it more? I personally loved this album for that, along with the subliminal political statements Albarn makes, as always. Thumbs up on the video!

At first I thought this album was pretty whatever, and I'd tend to skip some if not many of the songs. However, after giving each song a fair listen, I have got to say, this album really did grow on me, and I did come back to it to listen to again. In my person opinion, I thought it was pretty good album, not on the level of demon days, but pretty good.

Totally agree, I have been really disappointed with Gorillaz ('s?) recent albums, they didn't feel like Gorillaz, and it's really sucks for a person who's a huge fan for the band, art, and lore, to get what was dished out after so long a wait, with some things being far more unsavory and non-subtle than the bland music

Nah nah nah. This album is worthy of much more than a light-to-decent 6. On my scale I place it at about an 8, maybe 7.5 at the lowest. It's a fantastic return to form after the bloated, disjointed mess with way too many guests and features that Humanz was. The Now Now felt like a cleansing. Washing off all the excess and getting back to basics. This album feels like how 2D looked during the video for Humility. An ex-junkie getting clean and going off for a soul-cleansing roller skate through sunny Venice Beach with a renewed sense of vigor and resolve. Refreshing. It had all the stuff that draws me into Gorillaz' work. Smooth beats and baselines complemented by funky synth/keyboard/piano riffs. Love it. And I cant wait for the 7th album to come. Hope that now they're all nice and cleansed they can take their time with it and produce something really special. Something on par with Demon Dayz.

The "Humanz" album was so uneven and chaotic (not to mention the huge and partly unnecessary amount of guests artisis), that I perosnally had to give it a NOT GOOD. The Now Now is a bit better though, but it's still not really a _return to the form_ for Gorillaz. I especially like two tracks off of it, namely Tranz and Lake Zurich (which has that kind of groovy, future funk vibe). The rest of the tracks are kinda meh. Also, the whole album's dreamy atmosphere and neon aesthetic is pretty cool too, with all those magenta and neon-blue colours.

+Avery Longley wow, that was fast. You're fine to have your own opinion, but I think that they can't compare with plastic beach or Demon dayz. They aren't even that good compared to bands like Radiohead or Velvet underground.

+dani I honestly loved Humility. It was both my favorite song from the album and became one of my favorite songs from them, along with Melancholy Hill. Humility just reminded me a lot of Melancholy hill, which is why I like it so much. I also think a decent bit of the other songs on the album are pretty good, and I don't think any are bad either. Though Humanz definitely did have its bad songs.

It might not be as bad as everyone says, but that isn't the main reason people hate it so much. It's because it was a mostly sub-par album that people waited over 7 years for and was supposed to be a large album to bring the band back.

First frame of 0:38, there is a editing error with the green screen. Could just be a rendering oddity, but just thought I'd point it out because it noticed it flash into my vision for a frame. You could probably make the full review clip as its own sequence with the albums covers and images rendered in, and then just zoom in on that sequence as if it's a clip, and cut that around to help diminish errors like this. Great review like usual btw!

The Music is MUCH better and feels more like Gorillaz (maybe because Damion/2D and the band is actually being at the helm vs being a featured guest on their own album) that being said, being a comic nerd I AM much more interested in lore and oooh boy I don't know what to make of it. Not to say it's bad quite the opposite, but something about the band feels off, their look of the band and the mood of videos feels insidious Noodle looks and based on some of her interviews acts cooked out of her mind, Russel in the tranz video looks like he's on way too many uppers, and 2D has an ego that rivals Kayne West. I can't help but wonder if The band is under some sort of spell or if maybe Ace gave them some really strong stuff. But for better or worse I'm pumped and I want to know what's going to happen next. Overall there is some stuff I don't like IE Hollywood and Fire fliez but from what i've heard so far. 8/10

The Now Now is way better than Humanz, in my opinion. At least it is actually THEM instead of a bunch of guests. It also isn't as in-your-face hyper liberal butthurt anthems like Humanz was.
