We gave it a B+

Having scored with animated supergroup Gorillaz, Damon Albarn continues his capricious career with another unclassifiable collective. The Good, the Bad & the Queen teams the former Blur frontman with ex-Clash bassist Paul Simonon, ex-Verve guitarist Simon Tong, and Afrobeat drummer Tony Allen (Danger Mouse produces). The mood is more melancholy than the lineup would suggest — much of the album sounds like ”Waterloo Sunset”-era Kinks set to languid dub grooves.
