    Characterizing Gorillaz is kind of like defining 'umami,' the mysterious fifth "taste" that westerners qualify with "meaty" or "savory". Sure we know it when we eat it, but it has no basic element can it be compared to (it doesn't exist like salt or sugar). The Japanese seem to have a better handle on it (or at least an earlier one, hence the proper name).

The music has evolved from a simple Blur offspring to something much more futuristic and electronic in nature, spawning orchestral interludes, narratives, and easter eggs for music fans and comic book nerds alike (of which I am all of the above). In short: Gorillaz has become Albarn's own personal dynasty.
