Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Damon Albarn is the frontman of Blur and the face of Britpop. While his peers have gradually fallen by the wayside, Albarn has reinvented himself as the mastermind behind Gorillaz. With his eclectic solo projects—such as the much-revered The Good, the Bad & the Queen—and his work with legends like Bobby Womack, he has proven that he is one of British music’s most innovative and important personalities. With the 2015 release of Blur’s first album for more than a decade, Damon Albarn took his place once more as an iconic jewel in the crown of the British music scene. This updated book covers his multiple musical personas in depth, with first-hand interviews by those close to Albarn in his formative years, as well as social and musical context that covers the Britpop era and Albarn’s reemergence as the Godfather to the iPod generation.
