Format: Audio CD
It's been said that the proof of any bands' talent is in the second album; Dreadzone had a mammoth task to just keep up with 360degrees, the first album.
But they did, albeit with a strangely effective blend of Olde English samples combined with their usual inspiring use of dub. Second Light is like a spliff - fuelled trek across the English Countryside, taking in caves, oceans and sailors (could just be me!)with Mr. Kipling at your side. Theres an even more spititual feel about this album; it is so chilled out it just fills you with a sense of peace and well being. I can't say enough good things about Dreadzone, so when i found out they would no longer be touring "as a band" (we lose money) it was something of a blow. However, if you live in London you can catch Greg at his DUBWIZER sessions at various locations.

Explaining Dreadzone to people is really tricky. The second you tell them it's reggae, it's like the blinkers come on & whatever you say on the subject will be ignored as most people's impression of 'Reggae' is Sean Paul & 'Mr Lover-Lover'!

This is such a pity as I just wish they would understand how awesome Dreadzone can be & how broad the church of Reggae is (if it is Reggae at all...)

This album is a case in point as it is filled with excellent music which has survived the test of time. Like The Fat of the Land, Leftism or Jagged Little Pill, the content has lost none of its power & its influence seems to stretch throughout late 90's dance.

Furthermore, go to see them live (or listen to Dreadzone Live at Sunrise) & songs like 'Little Britain' & Zion Youth are up there with the best of modern times. Curiously you will also discover that songs that sound cluttered & imperfect on here (e.g. 'Captain Dread') have been evolved to become polished perfection.

And yet this album isn't celebrated with the greatest, despite its abundance of diverse sounds (e.g. A Canterbury Tale), meaning that only a select few know about it.

Originally my attitude to this was that it was good to keep the secret.

Keep going back to this CD AND IT'S FANTASTIC SOUNDSCAPES TIME AND TIME AGAIN.It is one of those albums that you just have to put on again as soon as the last track has finished. Loved the single Little Britain when I first heard it and was amazed to hear them sample a 'Neo Geo' track of Ryoichi Sakamoto(of Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence fame). If you like a bit of chilled out dub, then this is your baby!

I adore this album. It has a rich timeless quality to it, the joyous mix of dub reggae with english folk is inspired and wonderful.

It also holds memories for me of a good friend who passed on not too long ago, it was one of her favourite albums too (she bloody nicked it! That's why I bought the download!)

The download is good quality and doesn't distort at all, buy it, you wont regret it.

Lush album - lush toons with beautiful ambience, creativity, vibrance and happy-smiley-feeling:)
First heard this album when at university in the mid 1990s. Little Britain is the top toon from it, awesome - creative genious!
Buy it one and all:) :)

This album is one of the best I've heard for many years, having listened and purchased Sound after hearing it at a friends I decided to buy this. My personal favourite is "A Canterbury tale", a tune of lush melodies and haunting vocals I could listen to this on repeat all day and never tire of it.

This is such a classic album, which still sounds fresh 13 years after it was made. It has brilliant basslines, great production and tunes that just stick right in your head. It has a wonderful mix of upbeat folky dub madness like Little Britain and Captain Dread, alongside ambient dub excursions like Shining Light, Cave Of Angels and A Canterbury Tale. These ambient tunes are what really make this album special, taylormade for listening to when out amongst nature like walking in mountains, or sitting round a campfire at dawn. And I never get tired of them. In fact this is a perfect album for anyone who goes travelling to a strange new land, I've listened to it in Morocco and on the Inca Trail in Peru and it just seems to fit those special moments. Play it loud and go to some magic places in your body and mind heh heh "alright my hearties follow me!"
