Newest album from one of the creators of dub music. Live instruments were recorded in the studio to give this release a different feel than past works. Even though Perry remains unpredictable his songs still range from silly (Freaky Michael) and playful (Used to Drive A Tractor in Negrille, Fire Power), to serious (album opener/title cut) with everything in between.
Noteworthy guests are George Clinton, who reworked the track “Psalm” into the spooky space funk that is “Scary Politician” and Keith Richards put his touch on “Book of Moses” (find the original “Moses Moses” on I-Tunes). With less dub and more experimenting going on this reviewer has no complaints. Overall a different album from The Upsetter that still brings the reggae but also has guitar taking more of a central role to the music all with the aforementioned “live” sound. Good stuff, to think if coming to the Burlington Reggae Fest 2010 wasn’t enough now he drops this great album. We should be so lucky.
