Gorillaz, 'D-Sides' (Virgin)

Critical Mass
Label: Virgin

by Marc Hogan

Two albums as a cartoon chimp finally brought Damon Albarn the U.S. success he barely tasted in Blur. And even though he's moved on to the Good, the Bad and the Queen, this rarities collection (which focuses on the Danger Mouse-assisted Demon Days era) still has some surprises, especially the zither-adorned "Hong Kong" and protest song "Stop the Dams" (recorded with ex-Sugarcube Einar Örn). For simian disco, electro-pop remixes by DFA and Hot Chip stand out amid Disc 2's uneven DJ fodder.
