Album Review

In addition to boxing fellow engineer Prince Jammy, ridding the world of vampires, and winning the World Cup, Scientist used his early-'80s records to thematically battle computer game foes.

And just below this incorporeal layer of sound is the fine and original production work of Linval Thompson (Scientist also mixed cuts by rival producer Henry "Junjo" Lawes) and the stellar playing of the Roots Radics band. A great dub title, which, like Rids the World of the Evil Curse of the Vampires, is one of Scientist's essential recordings.
