(5 out of 5 stars)

"It would be hard to discount Augustus Pablo's contribution to reggae music and specifically his influence on dub. He is known for being an innovative dub artist, but is really much more than that. Earth's Rightful Ruler showcases his considerable abilities outside of the realm of dub music. This is a largely instrumental outing (Hugh Mundell does some chanting and there is some spoken word by Pablo and various backing vocals) where the melodica takes command of the "vocal" part, and the result is incredible music! Every single song is exceptional, and the musicians who contribute to the project comprise a Who's Who of Reggae Music. The liner notes claim that the album is produced by Jah Rastafari - Haile Selassie I and co-produced by Augustus Pablo, and I have little doubt that the spirit of H.I.M. is being channeled through Pablo.
