Import only Dub remix album of tracks that are featured in their original form on Bobby Gillespie and co.'s excellent 1997 album Vanishing Point. Legendary Dub/Reggae producer Adrian Sherwood (Tackhead, On-U-Sound) headed up most of the remixes here. Nine tracks guaranteed to blow your mind and your speakers. Modern Dub at it's most dubby! Highly recommended for fan's of Massive Attack's dub remix album, 'No Protection'. Sony.
Among Sherwood's finest work

"Only dub fans like myself can truly appreciate the greatness of this album. This is a similar project to Mad Professor's dub deconstruction of Massive Attack's Protection. This is actually a superior effort to No Protection. The mastermind on Echo Dek is Adrian Sherwood (the prolific dubmaster behind African Head Charge, Creation Rebel, and Dub Syndicate), not the Scream. He takes the original Vanishing Point tracks and guts them, leaves a select few vocal snippets, amps up the drums and bass... in true DUB style. Highlights include "Last Train" (version of the classic "Trainspotting"), and the thunderous "Wise Blood" featuring vocals by the mighty Prince Far I. In most cases, the new versions improve on the originals. No disrespect to Primal Scream fans, but they wouldn't amount to much without great producers."

"Forget those wretched Chill-Out compilations or Moby and the like, this is the real thing--a stern rebuke to the the Kenny G's of trip hop, downtempo electronica. "Echo Dek" is a very dark and trippy recording that practices at the altar of originality. I recommend it every chance I get to people who want enliven their cd collections...and are ready for it."
Only for the hardcore fan

"Echo Dek consists of remixes of "Vanishing Point". Some of the remixes are excellent, others merely good. But considering its 27 dollar price tag, most will be fine just owning the excellent Vanishing Point CD."
