    General CommentIf you would like to see this album in a new light, try putting this idea in to your head.

    This album is much like a play. It starts with an orchestral intro, setting up the feel of the story, which sounds like a dock to me. But you also have to think of it not as our world, but it is much a like, but this is the Gorillaz universe, aka The World of the Plastic Beach.

    Now, we have characters also, very important (the idea isn't exact, but bare with it):

    2D is the voice of Human Nature
    Little Dragon(or Noodle, which ever) is the voice of The Electric/Stylo (I named the girl character Stylo for explanation reasons.
    Bobby Womack I assume is the voice of Nature, but im not 100% on it.
    Mos Def seems to be the speaker for Stylo, making her seem glamourous, or just a part of the human mind taht loves Stylo.
    Bashy and Kano are two actual humans way in the past before any form of rules existed.
    Gruff Rhys and De La Soul are two spokespersons for a commercial ad in this world.
    Mark E. Smith is a ship Captain in search of plastic beach.
    Lou Reed is Artificial life, much like a robot.
    Snoop Dogg is just the voice for the album, for example "in fair verona where we lay our scene" from romeo and juliet.

    Now in this world, we, the people, are represented as the pirates, in search of this electric, plastic, and fake paradise.

    Now if youre still following along, ill explain myself by commenting on the other songs of the album.

    General CommentThe intro plays out like the beginning of a dream, with the gentle lapping of waves and French horns. It acts like a haze, hiding the true nature of the world with an enticing cover. It's only when the haze fades away do we truly see what lies underneath.
