AllMusic Review by

Originally released in 1984, then re-released 12 years later, this split CD featuring two of British dub's most prominent figures shows just how far the genre has come since its early days in Jamaica. A split CD with five tracks from each of the two legends, the album reminds us that there was a time when it was a producer's creativity, not mere technology, that made dub "versions" sound so hypnotic and otherworldly. Though not the best work either Mad Professor or Jah Shaka have to offer, this is the sound of two inventive dub masters in their prime.
