The '00's were not a distinctive decade--hell, we still haven't all agreed on what to name them, but this was kind of a quintessential '00's song.

Still remember having a debate about this video just after it came out with some 'not technically-minded' people who were convinced Madonna was actually on stage with the band, not realising mesh projections don't work that way

Gorillaz is one of those bands that you say " there is no way they can play that live. Too many samples, too many instruments, too many guest singers"

And then the bloody do it, live. With minimal prerecording.

It's just amazing how seriously Albarn takes his live shows and who pops up live in different cities.

Plus he plays brand new material on stage. In Seattle he started a song over three times he had just written because he wanted to do it better for the audience. That's a gift.

Very cool.

I'll admit, it's a very narrow margin between the two. Sort of like ranking the 'greatest rock guitarists of all time'; you know who's going to be in the top 5, just not what the order is going to be because it's subjective.

That was easily the worst of the Macross series.

I don't disagree. Way too much reused animation in the space battles and the story was all over the place. I do think that a remake of it with some very strict guidelines of what to keep in it and what to axe could actually work.
