4.0 out of 5 stars Quite quite mad, but endearingly so, 6 Oct. 2004
This review is from: No Protection (Audio CD)
This is less a remix album than a collection of new tracks loosely based around the original recordings which comprised the still-excellent Protection album. What Mad Professor does here is turn up the bass until your ribcage shakes, strips away some of the layers and concentrates on the hypnotic cycles of bass and drums and bass and drums and... it's unsettling, dark and at times dense, but rewarding. I don't know about the first cut being the deepest, but the first track here is the weakest. From thereon in, and just when you may start thinking "I've bought a lemon," the bass rumbles away and sweeps you off with it, and by the time you hit Cool Monsoon, you're away in another dimension. Don't buy this if you want to hear "Protection" with a different drum pattern or arrangement. Buy it if you want to hear a totally different dub-heavy take on a classic album. It's a potent brew.
