Stop the Dams
Label: Parlophone UK
D-Sides sees Albarn and Co. fluffing up castaways and alternate takes from Demon Days, while a bonus disc of hits from the Gorillaz's second album gets doused with remix spritz. Highlights include "Hong Kong" -- a somber number filled with twinkling strings -- and "Murdoc Is God," a buzzing Jesus and Mary Chain-style tribute to their favorite A-Team member. The best of the bonus fat here includes 4 a.m. crowd-pleasing retreads of "DARE" by the DFA crew and Soulwax.
