Definately not everybody's thing. Slowed down, meandering mixes of the original tracks (often drastically changed, like 'De-Punked') won't appeal to everyone. One of my best friends doesn't like what he's heard from it at all.
Personally, though, I think it's brilliant. I especially like 19/2000 (Jungle Fresh), Slow Country (Strictly Rubbadub), and Re-Hash (Come Again). They're so different from the original versions; It's a completely different sound, but it works really well.
As I write this, I keep feeling like I ought to recommend this album to a certain kind of person, but I'm finding it very hard to do so because I've never heard anything like this.
I suppose if you're into dub and like Gorillaz it's an obious choice. If you're just a Gorillaz fan and haven't listened to dub before, it's hard to say whether or not you'll like it. I did, anyway. Buy it if you want to take a bit of a leap into the unknown. You might be pleasantly surprised like I was.
Five stars. Absolutley excellent in my opinion, but it certainly won't be to EVERYBODY's tastes.
All the songs come from the Gorrilaz debut album, and classics like "Clint Eastwood" and "A1/M1" have been totally transformed into something like a reggae dub fusion.
I don't smoke, but if I did, this is the album I'd want to light up to!!!
This album has a proper old school dub/reggae vibe, reminiscent of Trojan Records & the mighty Studio One. This is no lazy cash in "remix" album, it's a full re-working in the dub style, with added instrumentation from a full live reggae band! these versions retain the essence of the originals, whilst spiralling off into the outer limits of dub. I would recommend this even if you don't own a gorillaz album, it's a strong album in its own right!
If you love reggae music but don't necessarily like gorillaz, i would still highly recommend it!
