Excellent, excellent, excellent. Even the 2 iffy songs mentioned are fine for teens.
Welcome to the world of the Plastic Beach. The Gorillaz have always been my favorite band, and their latest CD lives up to my expectations. The guests are pretty awesome; Mos Def, De la Soul, Snoop Dogg, Little Dragon, and more. There's even a sample from an old Swanson breakfast commercial in the track Superfast Jellyfish. As content goes, teens have heard worse. The 2 songs that are the raunchiest are White Flag and Sweepstakes, as CSM said. The former is an awesome song as is, but some lines discussing sex and religion (as well as an s-word) might give parents pause. Sweepstakes is a good song, but it has 3 f-bombs. Still, this is pretty safe compared to most of the stuff teens listen to. Overall, this album is, to quote the track Rhinestone Eyes, "like rhinestones falling from the sky". Give this CD a listen. Best songs: Empire Ants, Superfast Jellyfish, Stylo, Rhinestone Eyes
