yeah man everything Ive heard post w documentaries I've instantly liked. That first one is for folks who've never heard Pole, Rhythm & Sound and whatnot it's a bit slicky and tepid IMHO ...unsubtle delay...like "I'm Brian Nesbitt and I make reggae'' the 2nd (blue) one is leaps n bounds ahead ok enough...

Much stronger and accomplished than the first Deadbeat album, SOMETHING BORROWED, SOMETHING BLUE sees Scott Menteith exploring the boundaries of dub further, with a keen interest to the space created by reverb, rather than reverb itself. The music itself is warmer, as immediately evidenced by the plaintative piano chords on "Head Over Heels." "White Out" introduces some well-received rhythmic variations on dub. Even the more reggae-oriented pieces like "Steady as a Rock" or "Joyful Noise (Pt. 1)" seem more filled out and less generic. "Fixed Elections" rings with old-skool IDM melodies and rhythms, while "Portable Memory (The Final Cut)" drifts away on echoing static and tones that open up possibilities beyond what is heard.
