iTunes Review

Just in case Pink Floyd's 1973 masterpiece Dark Side of the Moon wasn't quite spaced-out enough, thirty years later, a loose collective called Easy Star All-Stars gave us their own unique spin on it, a completely dubbed-out version, saturated with the requisite freaky sound effects, reggae instrumentation, and reverb galore. A tremendous hit both critically and commercially, it has remained on the Billboard Reggae charts ever since, and led to their re-imagining of other classic albums from Radiohead (a revamped OK Computer called Radiodread) as well as the Beatles (Easy Star's Lonely Hearts Dub Band). This follow-up is decidedly more dub than Floyd, with a diverse assortment of producers (Mad Professor, Dubmatix, Groove Corporation, Dreadzone, Alchemist, and many others) contributing some exceptional remixes. Don't miss "Us and Them," "Time," On the Run," and "Step It Pon the Rastaman Scene."

Customer Reviews

Phenomenal Interpretation

As a long time fan of Floyd, I cringe at every half baked attempt to cover their tunes. Usually this happens in any average bar and usually involves "Wish You Were Here". In the case of Dub Side, the artists have achieved a phenomenal interpretation of one of the most revered albums in the history of recorded music. Much like the original, the songs flow together beautifully, but have been adapted seemlessly to fit the rhythms of reggae. From the incomparable vocal solo on "Great Gig" to the funked out "Any Colour", this album is a treat. A must listen for any Floyd fan.

Reggae has never sounded so sweet!

Pink Floyd and Reggae what more can I say. Pass around again <cough>

Instant Classic

I just don't get some of the reviews below, maybe they don't understand how music works, but to dismiss this because it is not the same as the original or can't "live up" to the original is just silly. Music always borrows, copies, covers, etc. In the process you can have uninspired garbage, but often you can have a totally new and wonderful experience in it's own right. This is a great piece of music, and a wonderful compliment to Dark Side. Anyone who thinks this is just about selling records is missing the point.
