CD Reviews

Lazy dub
kaysixone | Manchester, UK | 09/13/2002
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Although this album doesn't quite reach the high standards of Pablo's best work, it's by no means as poor as is often made out and generally manages to get into my summer playlist at some point. Recorded at Harry J's and King Tubby's studios in the mid-1970's and mixed by Tubby, it's a lugubrious journey through a selection of mostly familiar rhythms (including versions of Jacob Miller's "Forward Jah Jah children", Bob Marley's "Rebel music" and the Lee Perry classic "Curly locks"), featuring typically sparse arrangements and fx. Pablo does seem to be functioning largely on autopilot throughout the proceedings but it's still a perfect album for chilling out to. However if you're new to Pablo I'd recommend that you obtain some of his better work on albums like "Original rockers" and "Who say Jah no dread" before considering this one...."
Good effort, though not his best

"In comparison to his breakthrough lps with King Tubby, "Ital Dub," from late 1975, is not as earthshattering as that or other releases of his, but Pablo always has interesting twists and turns in his music to keep you listening and wondering what will come next.A good effort."
