4.0 out of 5 stars Closure of the GIAB era 17 Sep 2010
Format:Audio CD
I worked with the band including the recording of these tracks, taken from the God is a Bullet (GIAB) session, so maybe my review will be seen as biased. That being said, Dum Dum Bullet completes the tracks that were part of the 2006-7 era of The Mission just before they went on indefinite hiatus. Without this inclusion the picture would not have been complete.

If you've never bought a Mission album in your life (perhaps you heard a track or two on the radio from their other material - or not) this might not be the obvious place to start - the album is a collection of B-sides and also-rans from God is a Bullet - perhaps buying that album (and this) would help provide an up-to-date of where the Mission's most recent non-live work stands.

If you do own at least one Mission album but don't own God is a Bullet, I would suggest the same recommendation - not to increase record sales for the band, but without the two, the comprehension of this picture and purchase of this album might be harder to attain.

If you're familiar with their work including God is a Bullet, chances are you'd buy this album anyway, but I'll run down the tracks for completeness.

** 1. It Dont Matter Anymore - A worthy inclusion, albeit also a b-side; bluesy guitars and hard rock drums provide along with a pounding bass provide a backdrop for Wayne to belt out a great vocal
** 2. Refugee - Heavy guitar intro leads into a song that fast paces along - great line "Let fate conspire her design - and come and put your hand in mine"
** 3. Room 22 - A fantastic trippy melodic song that gained rapid popularity amongst mission fans when released on this album. Some said "It should have been a single"; I agree.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's the dreaded post-split b-sides album... 29 July 2010
By Mr. M. A. Reed TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After 2007's underwhelming "God Is A Bullet", comes the detritus : the band split a year later in a blaze of obscurity, the tour played to a fraction of people, and the resultant live albums from the final shows slipped out quietly. Here then, is, for now, until the 25th Anniversary Tour, the leftovers. A few b-sides, some internet-only downloads, a couple of unreleased numbers, and a few half-finished ideas get polished up/down and sanctioned for release. Ultimately, it sounds exactly like the album of sup-par songs it is. The songs are overall neither good nor bad, just average, not particularly memorable. It isn't really the fitting end to The Mission tale - but a selection of offcuts and extras presented in a different frame. Once you get past the glory days of the first four or five albums, and the subsequent nostalgia industry of small-selling studio records, compilations, and the numerous concert releases, you get to this, which is the whimper of The Mission. Credit to the band for releasing their obscure material in one place and time - no-one can really criticise the band for making their back catalogue a minefield of obscure brilliant material you will never find : however, on the strength of the music alone, it's the sound of a band running out of ideas.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth adding to the collection 30 July 2010
By Rich
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am not sure now why I bought this, probably because God is a Bullet has grown on me over the last 3 years, and I was pleasnatly surprised. The new releases are as good as those on the GIAB album and the reworked versions are often better than the original, at least in showing the songs at a different tempo/style. The 2nd reworking of blush is Excellent. For Mission fans who like to see a different aspect this is well worth buying. For new fans, make sure you buy Carved in Sand and the other classic albums before this.
