"It might be better title "dronin' and bustin'" as disk one features all of the droning, "trippy" remixes and disk 2 the more "bustin'" live tracks (whatever "bustin'" means?) You get a big fold out insert with all of the lyrics printed in Japanese as well, so you could learn a second language through Blur songs, I guess. There's even an essay in Japanese. I can't read them. But the music is high quality, definitely worthwhile for a fan of Blur, but not a must. John McEntire and Thurston Moore help to do some very interesting mixing with Blur's tracks. More for the fans of songs like "Battle" than songs like "Girls and Boys" or "Chemical World"."

"This album isn't really that great. There are three versions of "Death of a Party", and the only one I really like is the Billy Whiskers version. All the rest drag on for far too long. The Moby remix of Beetlebum, John McIntyre's Theme From Retro, and the broadway On Your Own actually sound like different songs, and are well thought out. In the end, however, you're sitting around for an hour listening to some half-hearted remixes that drag on for far too long. The remixes of Bugman off of Coffee and TV were much better on the whole, all different styles and under six minutes apiece. On this album we get a 12 minute opus of all the many tracks in Essex Dogs played separately. Not too exciting, but interesting.The second disc is pretty great, Graham blisteringly leading them through some singles. Amazing, but only twenty minutes long. If only they cut out three of the remixes and added some more John Peel tracks!"
