Monkey - Journey To The West

Much has been written about the album 'Journey to the West' by Monkey (Damon Albarn et. al) so I won't bother with a full review. However, I will say that I really like it. The mix of ancient Chinese music and modern electronica works surprisingly well, and on the whole it hangs together as an album pretty well. Obviously at some points it is very soundtracky and therefore there are obvious highlights and lowlights, but it's a solid, interesting record. Anyway, here is album opener 'Monkey's World', which sets the musical scene for the album. Enjoy
