About this deal

British garage rock band The Horrors were invited to play on the album after Albarn heard their 2009 album Primary Colours. saw it as a demonstration of the band's "picturesque mishmash of rhymes, pop, disco, orchestration, blues and dark electronic beats. Like their self titled debut album, this album perfectly showcases the band's two sides which compliment each other perfectly.

According to The Times journalist Peter Paphides, Plastic Beach is a pop and concept album, [26] while AllMusic editor Stephen Thomas Erlewine said that "Damon's painstaking pancultural pop junk-mining" on the album posits hip hop with Britpop and "accentuates moody texture over pop hooks". Otherwise a fairly quiet noise floor on Discs B-D, big soundstage as many others have said here, decent separation, and fairly dynamic. Been waiting to find a copy of this for a few years to see if it was better than the 2010 pressing that I got upon release. Entertainment Weekly 's Leah Greenblatt viewed its "sonic drift" as "dull, and even dispiriting" in the album's second half, stating "In the end, Beach offers a vision of the future as digitised kitsch: groovy, yes, but lonely too".Albarn said in an interview, "I'm making this one the most pop record I've ever made in many ways, but with all my experience to try and at least present something that has got depth. A fifth ident was also released, showing a luxury cruise sail being bombarded by torpedoes coming from planes flying above it. In the Chicago Tribune, Greg Kot was impressed by Albarn's ability to produce exceptional music using "seemingly mismatched elements from different cultures, genres and generations".

The band have taken up residence, recording on a secret floating island deep in the South Pacific, a Plastic Beach HQ, made up of the detritus, debris and washed up remnants of humanity. Purchased a copy of this record yesterday, and have just noticed that the Matrix/Runout on my copy is slightly different (BB28469-01 A5 instead of A1). This version differs from the original pressing in that any mention of "EMI Records Ltd" was replaced by "Parlophone Records Ltd". It debuted at number two on the US Billboard 200 with 112,000 copies sold in its first week; overall it reached the top 10 in 22 countries in total.Noodle's ident acts as a trailer to the "On Melancholy Hill" music video, which was released on 15 June.

Now with a massively successful US tour opening for sweet soul darlings Thee Sacred Souls behind him, 2023 is sure to be a propitious year for Daptone's newest signee. He was supposed to do it, but then he declined, which was a real shame", Albarn explained to New York magazine. Excelente reedición, suena a la par de un rip de la edición europea, la verdad a mitad de precio este es de esos discos que valen la pena por mucho. The track can be found as a bonus track along with "Pirate's Progress" on the iTunes Deluxe edition. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Posdnuos of De La Soul said that the group had provided vocals on two songs for the album, "Electric Shock" and "Sloped Tropics".

The tracks were "White Flag" and "Pirate's Progress" (an extended version of the Orchestral Intro found on the album). The records come in two full colour glossy printed inner sleeves, housed in a gatefold outer sleeve. Plastic Beach debuted at number two on the UK Albums Chart, selling 74,432 copies in its first week.
