si vous êtes fans de Gorillaz, il remplira très bien votre étagère,
fera votre fierté, et vous serez tout heureux de découvrir quelques petits secrets de l'univers de Gorillaz.
Et si vous n'êtes pas fans, il est rempli de très beaux artworks,
mais j'imagine qu'il a tout de suite moins d'intérêt.
Bref, je le recommande aux fans.
J'ai acheté le livre en état "Neuf, je l'ai reçu avec une petite marque de Cutter sur le-devant la couverture, des marques de colles sur lesquels se sont déposés de la poussière, je trouve ça juste dommage qu'il y ait ses quelques petits défauts.
Mon livre est arrivé environ un mois après ma commande.
Je suis très contente de mon achat!
Mon fils de 13 ans, fan de gorillaz l'a dévoré malgré qu'il soit en anglais !

The second way is reading this as if it were all true. And believe me you will think it is. The band is so well written, you start to think, "Oh Murdoc is a great lyricist!" But then you think, wait, it's really Albarn who did the writing. Bits like this help you enjoy this book twice as much as if you would only see it as one or the other.
And I have to say this is quite a bio. While they could have gone and made a quick small book with existing artwork, they laboured in creating a genesis of a band showcasing every little minute detail in their lives to the present. And I love it. I love little details like these. You fall in love with the band even more.
The book explores their origins, their loves and hates, they're issues, victories, writing lyrics, creating videos, collaborating (with the ppl that actually took part in creating the band), photo shoots, romances, affairs, hauntings etc, arguing and discussing every thing while showing pictures of them every step of the way.
And they really are meant as "photos" of them. They've taken this to a new level. Where once one could easily turn themselves into a cartoon for the sake of a video, a cartoon here has literally become real, solid, tangible. Do you really want to know that 3 people played the part of Russel? Not including his voice? Or that 3 or 4 ladies did the voice and vocals for Noodle while others played the guitar parts? I certainly really don't. While I know most of the "real" background info on them, I much rather prefer to believe them as real people.
But it's easy to see the underlying notes throughout the book give little hints and glimpses of the real story, with the real people that brought it together, but it's so subtle you'll kindly smile because they did this so well it doesn't interrupt the pacing of the book at all.
But remember you love Kermit the Frog and Gonzo for them, not because it's Jim Henson and Frank Oz moving them.
So if you're a fan of the Gorillaz, this is a must have. If you're a fan of great pop art, great storytelling, and great music this is a must have as well. The Gorillaz can't be considered the "best" animated band, because technically they really are the only animated band. But at the same time, they shouldn't be considered that either.
They're really just another band. They put on shows, they do interviews, they do photo shoots they get drunk, they get beat up etc. Because in the end the music is what it's all about. And watching them live and create is a luxury all fans and spectators get to have.
*Get the accompanying DVD Slowboat to Hades and the new vinyl figures from Kid Robot out now as well if you're a die hard fan like meself!*
One thing I had fun doing when I first got into the band was tracking down magazines that featured Gorillaz, so I could read up on them and collect the artwork. It was blown away to find every piece I had from magazines featured here, and in much better resolution. You can see that for yourself in the video portion of this review. The bottom line is that if you're a big fan of Jamie Hewlett's work, you'll be in heaven here. But the real meat of the book is the story and interview portions. They REALLY go the extra mile with the whole 'fake band' thing and develop an insanely cool back story for the band with a lot of things I hadn't read up on until this. It's not just plain interviews either- the trademark Gorillaz tone and humor is here, with bits where Russel gives Murdoc dirty looks or straight-up threatens him. I wasn't expecting such a detailed story for the making of their music videos so this was a nice surprise. They never talk about the real members behind the characters either! This book is presented as the real story of Gorillaz, not Damon and the others who've contributed to their albums. And if you didn't know any better, you'd think that the band really did exist as they're presented here.
From amazing group shots, to the blueprints for Murdoc's bass. From pre-production music video sketches, to the band mingling with real-life people...this book is full of everything you could ever want from the band. I have zero complaints with the book, and you should find a copy quick before the prices shoot up even more. Even if you 'just' get a paperback copy, it's worth it. This is one of the few art books that I regularly take off my shelf and flip through for dozens of minutes at a time.
