AllMusic Review by

Bill Laswell uses the pseudonym Divination for some of his more psychotic endeavors in experimental ambience -- with the emphasis on the "mental." He invites several likeminded artists to collaborate. Ambience Dub, Vol. 1 features Laswell with Liu Sola, Jeff Bova, Nicky Skopelitis, Buckethead, and Robert Musso. They have created some outrageous and cutting-edge soundscapes that defy logic and explanation. Using atmospheres, experimental sounds, dub rhythms, and ska backbeats, they have ventured into unknown territory. There is no turning back from this adventure. Laswell is in control and he is relentless in his pursuit of different experiences through new sounds. Fans of Banco de Gaia, Eat Static, Pete Namlook, and Deep Space Network will like this CD.
