On this record, former member of Cabaret Voltaire Richard Kirk spreads his wings and gives us this dub-soaked set. Not a mere homage, however, this is very modern music, albeit, at a pitch and a pace that will remind many listeners of the thunder that leaked from Tubby's during the '70s. The groove here, though, is gently complicated with sampled voices and sounds that never would have made it onto a reggae record. This is perfect soundtrack music for movies full of men with mustaches and briefcases striding purposefully, men turning to watch silver cars pass in the reflection of windows. Men who clearly know too much. This is a welcome sound, one that has strong roots, but one that always moves ahead. Strongly recommended.
