5.0 out of 5 stars Talking in my British accent, 17 Aug. 2001
This review is from: Run Come Save Me (Audio CD)
From 'No Strings...' to 'Dreamy Days', every style pushed forward. Anyone expecting the boom - bap, it's there but in a British way. To long has the British scene been rooted in the underground, people need to hear this. It's uniquely different to the US stuff. It incorporates so much more in its production, plus it comes with a British accent. References in the lyrics we can actually feel for, slang that you will actually know the meaning of. Not since The Brotherhood and Lewis Parker has underground that has gone main, actually been any good. Buy this, support the homegrown talent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trojan provides, again, 9 July 2001
This review is from: Trojan Dub Box Set (Audio CD)
Trojan continues they good form in there box sets with this first excursion into dub. The music, which has given so much to modern day music recording, in this box set shows the longevity that dub has. Having played this to my friends, they now all want a copy. With tracks from the undisputed king of dub, King Tubby, plus his protégé, The Scientist. Both using delay and reverb with the uppermost skill producing some heavy weight sounds. Tommy McCook provides the bouncer, lighter, horn sounds, along with the Sir Niney's Observers. It wouldn't be complete without an appearance form Lee Perry, this comes in the form of his Upsetters, proving that genius is. This box set, along with volume 2, is a must for anyone with a liking for reggae sounds. You won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Short and sweet, 2 July 2001
The Rocksteady era was short, but in that time some gems where made. Conquering Ruler - Morgan, Derrick, Riding On A High & Windy Day - Paragons, Dreader Than Dread - Honey Boy Martin, Upsetter - Lee Perry. This defiantly is an album to get your lover in the mood, slower than Ska, more filled in then Dub, should put a smile on anyone's face after they have bought it and played it for the first time

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Listening for the summer time, 2 July 2001
Starting off with a Chelsea terracing favourite, this collection is subliminal listening all the way through. Filled with some of the best horns players for the island at that time, Val Bennett, Tommy McCook, Carl Cannonball Bryan, and delightful sounds of some earlier Upsetters tunes, Perry at his best, and the Hippy Boys. Buy this album, whack it on, and sit back and enjoy some summer sounds.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still leaves you hanging, 12 Jan. 2001
The last instalment of the Babycart series, and you will feel a little disappointed when it ends. The film follows the format of the other films, with the climax of a huge showdown in the snow covered hills. The only problem being that you are left unsure is to what will happen, where the lone wolf and cub will go, what will happen to the shadow clan, the lot. Watch it to finish off the film series, don't expect it to finish off the story.
