RSD August 2020 drop. Limited to 15,000 copies in a tri-fold, gatefold sleeve with plain white inner sleeves.

The track list inside the gatefold contains a minor misprint - track F2 is listed as "twenty one" rather than the track position in red like other tracks.

Has anyone else had any problems with it skipping? I’ve had 2 copies so far and both have skipped on the Dare remixes on sides D & F. The rest of the album plays perfectly fine

Not the best collection of songs, but "We Are Happy Landfill" is one of the best Gorillaz songs I've ever heard. The sound is clear.

I was eager to revisit this on vinyl since I was in high school when it first came out on CD. Back then I adored it. For me, it really hasn't held up quite as well as I'd hoped. Listening to this again with the more refined musical sensibilities I didn't have as a teenager has made it pretty obvious why so much of this was cut. If you try to squeeze any of these tracks into the Demon Days lineup, they just don't fit anywhere. Not that it's all necessarily bad, but some of it does tend to clash aesthetically with Demon Days. Most of the music is interesting enough to justify the album's existence but there are a couple of stinkers that are really just not worth anyone's time aside from novel purposes.

As one would expect with a B-sides compilation, most of the album lacks the level of polish and production of DD. Not a of lot this music is especially worth revisiting. "People" is basically just a terrible, droning, castrated early version of "Dare" without a hook. "Rockit" is very clearly unfinished based on its "lyrics". You can hear its potential but there's obviously something missing, and most of these tracks are like that. "68 State" is good but also clearly unfinished as it lacks lyrics altogether, and Gorillaz aren't really in the habit of releasing instrumental tracks. This was obviously meant to have lyrics, but they likely just didn't think it fit with the rest of the album so they didn't bother writing any. "Hong Kong" is great but it's almost twice as long as any other track from DD, so I can see why it was dropped. A seven minute track in the middle of an album comprised mostly of three and four minute tracks would likely hinder its flow regardless of where you put it.

Basically all of the remixes are disposable, save for maybe Jamie T's Turn to Monsters Mix, which is about the only one that does anything unique or original enough to be interesting. I highly doubt I will ever give the third disc another spin. Even though it's a little rough around the edges, D-sides serves as a great reminder of how perfect an album Demon Days is. There's some really good music here, but a lot of it feels unfinished. However, knowing a track like "Stop the Dams" wasn't good enough for them has given me a greater appreciation for how much care and consideration went into the composition, track selection, and arrangement of Demon Days.

So glad my favorite Gorillaz album got pressed to vinyl. This album, despite being b-sides, is full of incredible songs. Specifically for the vinyl version, Hong Kong sounds especially haunting, more so than usual. Spitting Out The Demons also sounds incredible on vinyl, and so does all the other songs. Murdoc Is God sounds a bit quieter than the rests, but maybe it's just because it wants to be played loudly. Overall, it's a fantastic album. If you're a fan of moody, grungy (and slightly drunken in a few cases) then I highly recommend this album.

The remixes are pretty good too, although I've never been too into remixes. My favorites are Jamie T. Turns To Monsters and Dare Junior Sanchez, but the rest are pretty good, too.

Finally on wax! But I have to say this edition shows the worst design, Gorillaz' phase one logo print in the side? I think it doesn't looks like the original CD or even the cassette versions! Number of copies are just marketing...

Very nice and sturdy outer sleeve; hate that paper sleeves were used for the vinyl considering the cost for this 3 LP release. In my experience, it plays quietly. I didn't care much for the remixes, but it's nice to have them on wax I guess. I would have paid the same amount if it was a 2 LP (just A/B and C/D) release with better sleeves.

Has anyone noticed that F2 is not labelled in red in the additional credits like the other tracks? DIRTY HARRY is written in caps between F1 and F3 but without the track number.
