Gorillaz - Cracker Island
The sentiment at the crux of ‘Cracker Island’ you suspect comes as the warm mid-tempo of Stevie Nicks-featuring second track ‘Oil’ reaches its drum-pounding crescendo. Though, in classic Gorillaz fashion, the preamble to the record arrived with an array of wild storylines and an invitation for listeners to join The Last Cult, there are evidently very real preoccupations nestled just below the surface of their animated escapades. “Individual actions change the world,” harmonise Damon Albarn and Stevie. “Fill them up with love.”
