Album Review

Multi-instrumentalist Ryan Moore (better known to alt-rock adepts as the bassist for the Legendary Pink Dots) continues his single-minded dub crusade with this, his ninth self-produced solo album recorded under the name Twilight Circus Dub Sound System. As always, his strengths and weaknesses boil down to the exact same thing: an almost monomaniacal devotion to the instrumental dub reggae of the 1970s that was epitomized in the work of producers like King Tubby, Augustus Pablo, and Lee "Scratch" Perry. From King Tubby he derives a delightful sense of textural risk-taking, from Pablo a fondness for minor keys, and from Perry a warm, wet analog sound that has come to be associated almost uniquely with Perry's legendary Black Ark recording studio. The strength of this approach lies in Moore's ability to re-create these sounds with such amazing fidelity; its weakness lies in the essentially derivative nature of the music that results. But dub fiends don't niggle over details like originality — this is mood music, and as such it's great stuff. Highlights are almost an oxymoron with this music, but this album's title track does rock particularly hard. Highly recommended.

Customer Reviews

The heaviest dubs in years!

If you like roots based dub Twilight Circus will blow your mind. The heavy groves recall the best of Tubby, Pablo, and Perry and I consider this to be the best pure dub album since the early 80's.
