Anyone here actually still a fan...?

Some years back I remember someone made a post like this. For the life of me, I can't remember if it was a post on a thread or if someone made a thread about this topic. But it really got me thinking just how many users who frequented this board at the time (mainly 2007-2009) were actually still fans of Gorillaz. So, do any of you guys still consider yourself die-hard Gorillaz fans or do you occasionally listen to their newer material just to see where they're at? Or maybe you just log in for nostalgia? You tell me.

As for me, well, I'll be frank. I was the "average" Gorillaz fan. By that, I mean that I mainly just listened to their music and paid very minor attention to what album the song came from or what "phase" they were in. I mean, make no mistake, I was a fan. I did read up on the characters' fictional biographies and the whole Demon Days story arc. I just wasn't purchasing merchandise or anything like that. But no doubt there were fans who were exceedingly more knowledgeable and dedicated than I was. And to be even more honest, I pretty much stopped listening to them after 2007. Plastic Beach did not hold my interest at all and I only recently learned that they released a new album, Humanz, in April of 2017. Not gonna lie, I'm not interested. Gorillaz does indeed hold a special place in my heart, but I'm definitely not the fan I used to be which, again, was just "average" to begin with.

Humanz is moderately good.

It's a little depressing to watch, though. Saturnz Barz was obviously very low-budget and watching it I was like "oh, well, if they need to cheap out a little it's worth it for more videos" and then it turns out that's actually the best they can do. The rest was bad-looking 3D models that were very obviously animated with a Kinect or something.

The glory days are over and we're never gonna get anything like the Demon Days era ever again, basically. I kinda prefer they'd just end it if Jamie doesn't want to draw the same four characters over and over again, not that I blame him.

Also holy great that massively mobile app was a terrible sad replacement for the online games even for this pared-back low-budget phase.
