In our modern age of direct tv deals and smartphones and social networking, it is hard to imagine a world or even a time where we were not this connected or the world simply didn’t feel this small. Plastic Beach, the latest album from Gorillaz, changes all that by evoking the sense of isolation many people not hooked into the internet and the latest network news must feel. When one listens to Plastic Beach it’s hard not to feel like you are part of the disenfranchised of some global megalopolis that has simply forgotten you along with all the outdated tech.

This album isn’t a call back to the past before technology bound us so tightly but rather a vision into a dystopian world where all that remains of our civilization are the dying skeletal remains of towering skyscrapers and failing technology. The songs feel like a cautionary, mournful wail to the future of humanity when we are finally all gone and all the world has to remember us by are the superficial edifices of our technology, glamour gear and ridiculously expensive and excessive fashion apparel.
