Track Of The Day #497: Damon Albarn – ‘Heavy Seas Of Love’

100 3286

At long last, one of popular music’s greatest innovators of the last two decades finally releases his first proper solo album today. The legendary Damon Albarn‘s beautiful, dark, funky and introspective ‘Everyday Robots’ is released today, and a review of it will be coming to the ‘ALBUM REVIEWS’ section over the next few days. Some people have said the album’s closer ‘Heavy Seas Of Love’ sounds like Michael Jackson. Some say the melody during the verse reminds them of ‘Daydream Believer’ by The Monkees. What it sounds like to these ears is an upliftingly soulful moment blessed with a magnificently emotive Albarn vocal, countered nicely by Brian Eno’s contrasting guest tones. God Is In The TV will be at Damon’s upcoming date in Portsmouth on May 31, so expect a live review shortly after…
