Ive been a Gorillaz fan since I first heard Clint Eastwood on Mtv, and have bought all their albums since. G-Sides was okay, mainly cause Ghost Train - also my favorite! - and the other new songs. But this CD has nothing but remixes. Granted, they are pretty good, but I don't want the same stuff again. I want new songs! Come on, Gorillaz, stop playing with the little monkeys and give me something good!

I don't know how you can say "Laika come home" is nothing new, just about the whole album is unrecognisable from their debut which is also great, and the dub-reggae stylings are amazing. I'm not normally into dub or any kind of mixing/cutting but this knocked my socks off. Its great red eye material that todays so called "new music" needs!

Personally I don't understand why everyone seems to be so against this album. It's fantastic. The songs on this album have the same titles and a couple bits of lyrics from the original tracks, but they sound nothing like the originals at all. These dubs are great. I listened to the entire CD for the first time at the beach down here in Florida and it made me realize how perfect Laika Come Home is. Strictly Rubbadub (Slow Country) and Banana Baby (Tommorrow Comes Today) have a neat ethereal quality to them that I enjoy very much. Other favorites include the dubs of M1A1 (Lil Dub Chefin), Man Research (Monkey Racket), and Mutant Genius (New Genius). Come to think of it, they're all good, and I could list every track on this album up there. Those spacemonkeyz really know how to slap a funky one. Basically, I think that if the tracks had completely new names people wouldn't be so uppity about them "rehashing the old," as Gorillaz dubs are always completely different from the original tracks. I'm not a fan of writing reviews, but I felt I finally had to voice my opinion on how Sovietly superior and how innovative this album is. Would anyone other than the Gorillaz release an island-themed album directly after a spectacular rock/rap/punk/whatever-it-was debut album? I SUBMIT THAT THEY WOULD NOT! ***** 5 out of 4 stars
