Album Review

Lee "Scratch" Perry and Mad Professor are widely considered two of the most distinctive innovators in reggae music, so it comes as no surprise that nearly every time they collaborate, they produce classic works of heady, experimental dub. Mad Professor is the stylistic heir of the late, great King Tubby — a master producer who can take even a subpar track and tweak and reshape it into something almost otherworldly. And Lee Perry is a reggae MC without peer: the slap-happy prankster, the charismatic madman, the Mad Hatter at reggae's tea party.

Along with producing some of the most influential acts (Bob Marley & the Wailers and the Congos to name but two) in reggae history, Perry's approach to production and dub mixing...
