If for no other reason, Gorillaz's The Fall is notable for being created and recorded entirely on an Apple iPad tablet. With apps like KORG iELECTRIBE, Amplitube and StudioMini XL Recording Studio, Gorillaz mastermind Damon Albarn created the album's 15 tracks while on the road last year touring the United States to promote the last Gorillaz album, Plastic Beach. It was originally released as a free download last Christmas for members of Gorillaz's Sub-Division fan club before being released this year on CD. As one would expect of an album recorded on an iPad, the sound is much more stripped down than a typical Gorillaz album and features fewer collaborations, but still manages to retain the Gorillaz sonic signature. Highlights include Amarillo, Shy Town and Bobby in Phoenix, the last of which features Bobby Womack on vocals and guitars. For more my paper stories click here .
