AllMusic Review by

Long out of print, nearly all the crucial recordings of Creation Rebel are now readily available thanks to CD technology. Both volumes (with another one in the offing) are absolutely essential dub records, seductive and compelling play after play after play. Sherwood's avant-garde tendencies were in the early stages of development here, and he adds a daring bravado to the insistent, undeniable groove that Creation Rebel lays down. Volume 1 is a little more song-oriented; Volume 2 is a bit more adventurous (and slightly better). Both of these are essential for any reggae fan's library. However, those interested in experimentation will walk away from this experience with their lives changed for the better.
