AllMusic Review by

Justin Broadrick's electronic and acoustic proclivities intersected once before, on the 1991 remix EP Slavestate. Where those mixes were wrought with an almost industrial-techno stiffness, Love and Hate In Dub (which sources Godflesh's 1996 trio release, Songs of Love and Hate) reflects Broadrick's more recent occupations: heavy ambient dub and nasty, paint-peeling drum'n'bass. The result is a more lithe, slithery redivision of Godflesh's metallic murk, some tracks echoing with deep, bassy drones, others pummeling away with odd rhythmic timbres and quasi-jungular patterns.
