Monkey Music.

Obsessed as I am with the book 'Monkey: Journey to the West', I decided to buy this album with the same name.

It is based on an opera of the same name written and directed by Chen Shi-Zheng, and composed by Damon Albarn, with visuals by Jamie Hewlett.

I am glad I decided to get the CD rather than download because the packaging is a small work of art in itself.

It unfolds like so

and then there is an insert

with some of the words.

The photographs don't do it justice.
