Albarn, Damon Monkey Bee Comments
  1. Chris APU

    🔥🔥🔥🙏🏽fire.

  2. Milky

    someone needs to make a trap remix of this

  3. Jack Cimino

    I found out that the glassy arpeggio sound that begins at 1:16 was sampled from a built-in rhythm of a Casio SA-1, SA-20, or related keyboard.

    sucralotus

    god bless you!!!

  4. Shane Blankenship

    if you enjoy this: Read Journey to the west.

  5. Afablesotrue

    I really wish Damon Albarn would do more stuff like this. I do like Gorillaz but personally I feel like this project was a lot better than the Gorillaz project.

  6. Diego Knela

    this is veryyy underrated :´(

  7. cupid

    this song is a work of art

  8. Shane Blankenship

    they are the best/funk it almost classical!

  9. Dork Whoop

    I love Gorillaz but this is definitely Damon and Jamie's finest collab

    Yeve the Deer

    Let's talk about you're profile first

  10. KRANTEE RAJPUT

    Amazing Track..Love from India.

    Cloud The Artist

    that reminds me, did they ever make it to you guys?

    KRANTEE RAJPUT

    @Cloud The Artist Yes they did.

  11. Strangeryann

    I don't speak a word of Chinese and I love that track so... Damon Albarn <3

    NoverMaC

    Mistress, outside there's the "Great Sage Equal To Heaven" wanting to borrow the Musa Bajoo magic fan (first line chants)

    Neoh Yi Woon

    Strangeryann I've heard of Journey to the west as a little kid and I loved it

  12. RmanDC

    Starts at 3:40

    Kendall Coombs

    +Rubén Wilde amen

    S/C

    Know what you mean, but the build up is what makes it!

  13. Jeboon

    Love this, somehow I wish it were more like the BBC Olympics promo version though.

  14. Bo Hu

    从北京音乐广播《娱乐东道主》节目中得知此神曲,特来膜拜。。。
    i just know this song from a radio show in Beijing, China, it's both weird and awesome

  15. Jonathan McDonald

    Awesome how they took the three different traditional singing styles, starting with the harmonic chants of the ancient Chinese merchant class, followed by the operettas of the Chinese upper crust, in terms of the rule bound structures which kept monkey from getting to the iron fan, meanwhile he sings with the simple chants of the Chinese labor class, which is still enslaved in a caste system today. Just look at your iPhone, no thank you suicide net factory. This definitely made some nasty political waves over seas.

    Truncador

    nigga, you're cult.

    Adam Kruszynski

    pretty sure damon albarn already confirmed this being the intent of the album

  16. svlina

    This is really wonderful music

  17. Unofficial Hero Trainer

    Cool dubstep!

    Frivvy Barage

    @Lisandru Grigorut It was a rather lame joke.

    Brian Corcoran

    Indeed.

    Unofficial Hero Trainer

    My intent was to rouse a debate about whether or not something is dubstep which is a common argument you see on youtube. I was poking fun of how people always react strongly to these arguments despite how inane they are and then try articulate their pointless arguments through lengthy comments describing what the genre of dubstep is (after a quick visit to wikipedia of course!). In this sense, my comment was an internet comment that makes fun of internet comments by emulating them which is metahumour in a sense. Indeed right now, me responding to these comments right now plays the same function and role in the continuous meta-joke which wikipedia describes as a self-referential joke. I am indeed making a joke about a joke right now. And the joke itself is the joke. Argue all you want, wikipedia is right, this may not be dubstep, but it is a high form of humour and you not understanding it means you need to take another good look at wikipedia.
    Hope this helps. X <3

    Refried Albino

    +Lisandru Grigorut Just....stop

    awf dwa

    A "hard to understand" joke yet pretty funny when you get it

  18. RadicalEdward2

    This is pretty fuckin epic. I've wanted to see this play for so long. I just wish Damon's version of Journey to the West included the Monk

    Lauren Emina-Bougaard

    im fairly sure it does, i saw it when i was younger then again i might be mizing it up with the t.v series but if you look at the journeytothewest webpage tripitaka is there. 

    Lechuga Lechuga

    @RadicalEdward2 It does, Tripitaka is there, he's the person dressed all in white w/red in the illustrations.

  19. Antonio Hernandez

    I'ts called Masterpiece mate.

  20. KrazaK87

    Dafuq is this rubbish

    StuTuDi

    seems like you got a different taste

    but it's not rubbish -.-

    The Random Person

    KrazaK87 ur rubbish towards my balls

    Jack Pandalord

    Jokes on you, mate. Your ears are rubbish

  21. cernunn

    Bronze to Gold Lee Sin session with this song playing was a glorious success!

  22. ILLmazing7

    this is. pretty fuckin frightening, no lie.

  23. Poetic Pariah

    Amazing song

  24. lkvideos64

    Haha it says willy and booby =)

    Yamin Ahmed

    lkvideos64
    It says Wai He but not willy. Also its Wu Bi not booby.

  25. omaquair

    What I consider as being surprising, interesting and maybe at some point fun, is that cu rrent artists like Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett, can have a review of such an ancient classic, and provide something extra in it. Isn't that the sign that eastern and western cultures can fit at some point, and enrich themselves by meeting ?
    On second thought, I have the feeling that there is some kind of Yin and Yang symbolism in my comment. ;-)

  26. Pingus

    Daman Albarn is probably one of the best songwriter of the century.

  27. realderekbrothers

    yea im a fan of gorillaz thats why i came to see this i thought it was a series they made before but thanks now i now what it actualy is

  28. realderekbrothers

    i dont get it what is this abought an animated series a band i have no idea really tell me

  29. Wumzum

    It was an awesome show wasnt it Bruv

  30. tigermunky

    aha, the Damon Alburn music is gooood.
    The opera I saw in Beijing was terrible. There was very little singing, mainly clashing of pots and pans and some guys doing poor acrobatics. The clips I've seen of the Alburn/Hewlett opera looks much much more fun!

  31. tigermunky

    I caught a version of the JourneyWest story while I was in Beijing. A complete waste of my time and money, it was aweful.
    I saw a few operatics while in China and the ones I watched in Beijing were by far the worst.

    Perhaps they should speak to Damon and Jamie to get some tips. ;p

    Matt Mah Beat

    It is one of a kind

    Matt Mah Beat

    Wow answering 10 years later... time flies

  32. AIRADE

    I saw the opera on the last day it was viewin' after it's extension. Me and my friend were like we should get tickets but being students, money's always a hassle and we didn't wanna spend so much, we ended up goin on a whim and went to see it! It was Awesome!!!

  33. Wumzum

    buy it buy it buy it!

  34. RedBloodTears

    This song is amazing, but it's hard to find on Limewire T_T

    bel z.

    Omg, Limewire...😫
    I feel old...

  35. lamtruong53

  36. lamtruong53
