"Windmill, windmill, for the land, live forever hand in hand", sings Damon Albarn (aka 2D) in "Feel Good Inc.", cartoon band Gorillaz's first single in three years. A simpily marvellous track, it is sure to bring in new fans for the band, especially for it's catchy chrous. The lyrics are splendid, the music is perfection, and the guest appearance by De La Soul is memorable.
It's been a few years since their self-titled debut album, but the Gorillaz are finally back. Have the four cartoon hip-hop monkeys and their real life companions still got that magic touch? Well, possibly. Don't get me wrong, "Feel Good Inc" is a phenomenal song... eventually. It's such a totally random song that it's very hard to get into initially. Once you do get into it though, you'll have it stuck in your head. A very interesting comeback.
The Gorillaz are arguably guilty of being slightly overrated, but this is a solid comeback for them after three years away. "Feel Good Inc" sounds very disjointed on its first few listens, but a bouncy beat and Damon Albarn's natural vocals help save this and cement it into the head.
