VINE VOICEon 31 August 2008
Splendid stuff with LKJ doing what he does; the reggae poet with the deep, rich and distinctive voice adds his clever lyrics over the top of a solid reggae backing. He has politically and socially aware commnent that is astute and perceptive. It's made more appoachable by being expressed without agression and without strident tones that can get in the way of the message elsewhere by those of the rap and hip hop generation. They may try to get you to see their point by holding a gun at your head and shouting. With LKJ you sit down with a large galss of rum, the bass beating rhythmically whilst he explains.

All bar one track is instrumental (Sonny's lettah) but this thoroughly chilling music with some fabulous production going on. Essential listening forall LKJ/dub fans out there.

Sounds as good now as it did nearly 30 years ago.
No music collection is complete without this Classic British Dub album.

If you like Lynton Kwesi Johnson, Dennis Bovell (Blackbeard) and dub, this is very listenable. Mr Bovell gives the tracks a good working over with his particular brand of dub. More sound/mood scapes for Mr Johnson's fire in the belly polemics. A 1980 release. A Stand out? Mabe "Brain Smashing Dub" or the opening "Victorious Dub". A good cross over and in 2012, it still has a good rumble going.

An excellent album and one of the finest dub albums of its type and era. This is a wonderful thing

although lkj's music is dub itslef, these dub albums are taking the art of dubbing to its very heights. take a beautiful reggae song and go over it again with artistry....and you get lkj in dub...every song is unique and plays with the contents of the original song.

CLASSIC ALBUM, USED TO HAVE THIS ON VINYL BACK IN 1981 AND STUMBLED ACROSS AN OLD COMPACT CASSETTE RECORDING OF IT AND HAD TO HAVE IT. SOUNDS EVEN BETTER ON CD AS WELL.

If there was a 6th star this would get it. All the tracks are brilliant dub versions of the originals. if you have LKJ's other albums, then this is a must for you.
