Gorillaz is the brainchild of Blur frontman Damon Albarn and illustrator Jamie Hewlett, who collaborated to create a virtual band in response to the void on MTV. While the group's dazzling animated videos would surely captivate any television viewer, the music on GORILLAZ is equally captivating. Sure, there's a touch of Blur's Brit-pop here, but the 2001 album is also marked by trip-hop and many other influences - Del the Funky Homosapien raps on "Clint Eastwood" and "Rock the House," Cuban singer Ibrahim Ferrer sings on "Latin Simone (¿Que Pasa Contigo?)," and "19-2000" features half of Talking Heads. Since the cartoon quartet of 2-D, Noodle, Murdoc and Russel recently received a Grammy nomination for their latest album, we take a look back at their debut, the million-selling GORILLAZ.
