AllMusic Review by

Dub is an art form, it really is. The idea of taking a track and cutting it down to the barest possible elements, and keeping those elements shifting, is minimalism taken to something of an extreme. At its absolute worst, it's difficult to consider dub to be music at all; at its best, it's the ultimate groove, relaxing, psychedelic, strange. This 27-cut compilation, featuring the mixing board talents of Errol Brown at the High Note label, is a classic example of doing it right -- in other words, a lot of fun, no filler, no boredom. The mastering is likewise excellent, giving the dubs a crisp edge.
