5.0 out of 5 stars Genius, 27 Sept. 2006
This review is from: Rids The World Of The Evil Curse Of The Vampires (Audio CD)
As any dub fanatic knows, the genre is crammed full of so-called classic albums that are tagged 'classics' but sound much like the countless other dub plates. But I have to say that Scientist's effort on this occasion is amazing in both his originality and sheer uniqueness. The gimmicky horror theme is pretty much extraneous to the substance of the record, a few screamed titles, a couple of eerie pianos, but this is just beautifully worked dub. Each track seems is a towering construction of towering bass and shimmering treble. Unlike say, King Tubby, Scientist eschews the straightforward cut and paste approach, instead working and reworking the track with plenty of detail ie. phasing, sound effects, cavernous echo, vocal samples, all skillfully mixed with a lightness of touch that saves it from becoming a gauche unlistenable record. As it is, this is one of the greatest dub records you can and should buy. It's up there with African Dub All Mighty, Vol 3&4, Pick-A-Dub and Blackboard Jungle Dub. A perfect place for the dub tyro to start.
