CD Reviews

Nothing extraordinary, but a solid dub set
Patrick G. Varine | Georgetown, Delaware | 02/01/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"There is nothing groundbreaking or extraordinary about this post-9/11 set from dub don Scientist. It's just a solid collection of dub grooves.

The album appears to be related to Sept. 11 in name only; the semi-controversial cover art (Bush in bed in his cowboy hat, Saddam poking out of his hole in the ground) is little more than an eye-catcher. Even the song "911" is just a paean to Rastafari, talking about 'birds in the trees,' and 'truer Rasta philosophy.' It's actually kind of a shame. The earthquaking potential of dub could have the ability to translate to an emotional reading of the events surrounding 9/11.

Instead we get some decent dubby tunes."
