AllMusic Review by

Although mostly noted for his politically conscious, message-filled tunes, Mutaburuka breaks out of that category with Muta In Dub, a hot package brimming with pared-down party music. The delay/reverb remixes of dub, still a mainstay of dancehall music, refreshes Muta's classics with killer riddims and a conscious line or two, thrown in for good measure. The opening track, "Cry Out Dub," a remake of "Outcry," is especially contagious, while "Never Get Weary Dub" floats with hypnotic power. This album keenly displays the other, freewheeling side of roots reggae.
