Gorillaz, not all it's cracked up to be

I just listened to Gorillza's Demon Days. Not sure what to make of it yet. I will try to listen to it properly tonight but so far impressed I am not. This whole business of 'trip-hop' thing isn't getting through to me.

Many people I know knows that I hate hip hop and rap (apart from fusion rap thrash metal inspired by the funny Anthrax's I'm the Man) so why the heck am I listening to this album? Funky beats, hip hop beats, drum n' bass - my brain can't process them all. Maybe I was trying to broaden musical experience.

Not many goodies released this week although someone recommended Audioslave's Out of Exile. I am not into Rage Against The Machine so I will pass unless someone can lend me. Maybe I can hold out long enough till June 13 when Foo Fighter's anti Bush 2CD album
In Your Honour is released. Heard it's pretty damn good.

I am getting so bored with my playlist I am considering subscribing to Napster To Go. Anybody here renting music from Napster?

well, i'd like to say that Audioslave don't sound very Rage Against The Machine-y, although that was what i was afraid of when i got their album.

Serious? Well I will see if I can get a sample somewhere. Cheers.

Unfortunately I am not into Oasis, Feeder, Stereophonics or Coldplay. No offence. :)

Suggest you try out British Sea Power.
