Having heard 'Dub Side of the Moon' and the brilliance of that re-interpretation, the first question is why do it again? Another dub version of the Pink Floyd masterpiece? What could we the listener possibly gain from it? Well the answer is a piece which is closer in intent to the original than 'Dub Side of the Moon'. I feel that it works as a whole rather than a collection of songs and contains many moments of experimentation just like the original. It could never be as inspirational, groundbreaking or definitive as the Floyd's version, a good comparison is with the Flaming Lips' effort of a couple of years ago.
For me, the icing on the cake are the bonus tracks, I presume they were felt to be too good to leave off, so we're lucky they are tacked on at the end. All in all I found 'Dubber Side of the Moon' a very chilled and mellow affair, I recommend you give 'Dub Side of the Moon' a go first though.
