Dub Take the Voodoo Out of Reggae Review

by Bret Love

The remarkable thing about reggae legend Lee "Scratch" Perry and production mastermind Mad Professor is not the sheer volume of their recorded output, but the relative consistency of its quality. This album is no exception, as Mad Professor remixes tracks from Perry's Who Put the Voodoo 'Pon Reggae? in typical dubadelic style. As insane as Perry normally sounds, being awash in the psychedelic soundwaves of dub suits his raving-madman vocal style even more perfectly. Here, his chicken squawks, nonsense utterances, and babblin'-in-Babylon ramblings are matched by a host of appropriately trippy, echoing, reverberating sounds. Pure, unadulterated dub genius.
