Gorillaz - Stylo

I'll be honest here. The track definitely starts off fresh and will get your head noddin' but only because it's got a great groove. After about a solid minute of listening to the same mash, you then realize that that's all that there is to the song... Props for not forgetting about the 80s Albarn but since this is the only new thing we've heard from the Gorillaz in a while (aside from those rough demos a few months back), this is a bit lackluster.

Then again, this is me being overly critical. I love the Gorillaz and believe that Damon Albarn is a great musician and songwriter so this track does deserve a few listens. As a matter of fact, I'm already on my fourth play-thru and already, I'm liking the track a bit more. It's not a fast-paced club-banger or an ecstasy-riddled party-starter like some tracks out there; no, it's more like "that track you slowly use to groove and grind after 2 solid hours of jump-style dancing." Take it or leave it, though it may be worth checking out.
