Wonderful, wonderful. The entire thing feels weathered and flexible, like a ramshackle set for a play on a small theater's stage, all made of reclaimed, paint-peeled wood from seaworthy rowboats (or, more literally, from doo-wop, ballads, Kinks-in-the-Village-Green-era, sleepy downtempo dub, dancehall, theater, maybe latter-day Talk Talk.) It's warm and textured, definitively made in the modern era but calling back to different styles of music from the past, and from different regions of the world...but mixed into a sonic stew of thick consistency. Damon's (mostly melancholy-centered, but with bursts of grandiose) emotions are expressed and thence captured with great attention to detail; the filter provided by the production's clarity gives the entire affair a lasting immediacy and scary intimacy, as though you're the only person in the audience and the onstage players are lit with perfect spotlights. All of the intended art is revealed in such warm and supportive light. What's really lovely about this album is that it feels like it has nothing much to prove, it simply is—and it doesn't much care if everyone appreciates it, so long as you, the attentive listener, do. Even at its most emphatic, The Good, The Bad and The Queen is still somehow relaxed in its competence, as befits a supergroup of such experienced and talented artists. This project ranks among the most visual and theatrical of Damon Albarn's many pursuits. Hugely rewarding to the right type of receptive ear.
