On the Other Side of Dub is one of reggae's essential dee-jay albums, and Lone Ranger is one of the founding fathers of the dancehall dee-jay business. Ranger recorded big hits for Studio One and was one of the artists responsible for the label's renaissance in the early eighties. On the Other Side of Dub contains nine top deejay performances as well as eight Studio One dubs. Also included is the extended mix of "Keep on Coming a de Dance", one of the Ranger's signature toasts.

"though the rythms on "on the other side of dub", are not fully realized dance hall, they do follow the template: redo some classic hits (in this case, studio one tracks) and add some updated lyrics. but don't be detracted; this album will shake your sound system. the lone ranger set the standard for jamaican djs heading into the 1980s. his lyrics sound fresh and inspired, and, over the rocking studio one tracks, help create an album that uniquely captures the transistion between the roots and dancehall styles. "barnabas collins" alone is worth the price of admission. the only potential downside is the straightforwardness of the dubs. but, hey, studio one rythms can always stand alone."
