iTunes Review

Damon Albarn’s discography is as wide-ranging as any figure in contemporary rock. Everyday Robots brings together elements from his singular musical journey. This solo album boasts the haunting, dub-oriented elements of The Good, the Bad and the Queen, Gorillaz’ dazed electronic ambience and the percussive textures of 2005’s collaborative Mali Music. The result is a stunning collection of deeply emotional experimental rock that only a musician of his range could have created. “We are everyday robots on our phones”, he laments on the opening title track, introducing the album’s theme of isolation in the digital age. But the album that follows is anything but robotic: when Natasha Khan (Bat for Lashes) provides a spectral echo on “Selfish Giant”, a mournful horn solo punctuates “Hollow Ponds” or the gospel choir sings back-up on the radiant Afropop-influenced “Mr. Tembo”, the result is deeply affecting.

Customer Reviews

Phenomenal

Damon albarn has always been able to communicate deeply through his music and has been a part of so many musical projects and bands etc (all of which are contain worlds of wondrous songs in themselves) but he's really out done himself on this album. Brought me to tears during multiple songs on everyday robots, and the subjects on which damon covers are touching and so personal on not only on an individual level but on universal level too. Absolutely the best album this year if not in the past two years. Never stop making music you lovely lovely talented man

Surprising, in a good way.

I don't mean the exact genre of the album is surprising, it's a delightful combination of almost everything Damon has done in the past, just mellowed out. This is definitely not a bad thing, and what surprised me is how although there was no real standout track, the album is a great home for Damon personally. I was glad to hear him have the lead vocals for the album, every song feels like a different part of him. Some people are saying the album is too moody, but if you like Gorillaz or GoodBad&Queen I think you've experienced this mood before. I hope this isn't his only solo work to come.

Beautiful, but too little range

This is one of those rare albums, like Beck's "Sea Change", that I find both incredibly beautiful and incredibly difficult to sit through. The problem is that it's ALL so moody and slow - there's not let up at all. Makes for a handful of excellent songs, another handful of okay ones, and an album I'll likely seldom listen to the whole way through. I would have been FAR more impressed if these slow songs were breathers between faster paced, less sad stuff.
