A comparison...but why?

"Old school dub and new school dub are two indisputably different things; however, this sampler not only juxtaposes the two but mixes them to a certain extent as well. New school dub lovers will enjoy the subtle 'new school' overhauls of esp. Black Uhuru's or Burning Spear's tracks on the album's first half whereas they may be somewhat disappointed by the album's second half, which is characterized by spun-out, more or less uneventful new school artists' dubs. The producers would have done well to include some more divergent modern dub bands; apart from the inevitable Mad Professor and the vintage 'rastafari' by Alpha&Omega, the new school half is just a bit too monotonous. Most dub fans will either like the first or the second part; nevertheless this album is a nice, albeit superfluous attempt at comparing two eras of dub. For a clearer picture you'd be better off buying yourself two separate CD's with some classic dubs both from the 70s and from the 90s."
Sly & Robbie's Raiders of the Lost Dub on CD

"The "Old School" section of this CD is actually an affordable way to get Sly & Robbie's super rare rare Raiders of the Lost Dub on CD. The Dubs of Black Uhuru's Sinsemilla "The Monkey is a Spy" and Burning Spear's Social Living are amazing. It is my favorite Dub Album and should be in all Dub Fans collections. The "New School" section is good but not great. I consider it a nice bonus."
