Damon Albarn isn’t really one to skimp on anything musically, from his early work in Blur to the artistic, genius collaboration for Gorillaz, so it’s no surprise that his first full length solo album is doing so well. The album houses songs that create a delicate, haunting ambiance with tracks like “Lonely Press Play” and “Heavy Seas of Love”, and it meshes together in beautiful, bittersweet ways. Damon Albarn’s voice is as tender and as strong as ever, and the music to go along with it is smooth and unrelenting. In this track titled “Hollow Ponds,” that stirring, almost chilling persona comes out to play, and it’s a song that gets more intense as it plays on. I’ll always love Damon Albarn, and this album only marks the start of what he still has left in that brilliant mind of his. “Hollow Ponds” is from the album Everyday Robots, which was released just last month.
