    B-Sides are very intersting. You get tons of filler songs, but since they are all on the same CD, you can't complain. I never listen toB-Sides are very intersting. You get tons of filler songs, but since they are all on the same CD, you can't complain. I never listen to remixes, so I did not rate them. It doesn't really sound like Albarn's trying hard, but somehow, it works in a wierd way. Some wierd twists are on this album, as well as oustanding moments.

    Standouts : "Dracula", "Ghost Train"

    This is a superb B-Sides collection. The score really depends on what version of the album you have, for me that would be- UK: 8, US: 10. TheThis is a superb B-Sides collection. The score really depends on what version of the album you have, for me that would be- UK: 8, US: 10. The UK version contains two songs "Dracula" and "Left Hand Suzuki Method" that were included in the standard US release of Gorillaz' eponymous debut album, and cuts out "Latin Simone", a criminal omission considering it's the best son on the album. The US version also includes an extra remix of "19-2000". It mostly contains tracks that were B-sides to the singles, but also songs that were in the first little-known-of Gorillaz EP "Tomorrow Comes Today" For what it is, this album is great experience.
