Greensleeves records are completely trying to avoid paying Scientist at all cost by rereleasing his albums and re-titling them as "Junjo Rids The World Of The Evil Curse Of The Vampires" and "Junjo Heavyweight Dub Champion" etc. These rereleases will be out next month with altered artwork and all smh ... I hope one day that Scientist gets properly compensated after all these years of being ripped off from Greensleeves.

This and 'Scientist Wins The World Cup' are absolutely essential to any fan of Dub music. Check out the Roots Radics albums he mixed too.

This is one of my alltime favourites. It made a huge impression first time i heard it.

crucial dub record for those whom are new to the genre.
best played at night, with the lights all turned off, preferably loud.

I am fan of Jamaican Dub Reggae Music from the late 1960s: King Tubby is the Supreme Master and Acknowledged Dub Inventor and Creator.

Scientist is one of many "Apprentices" whom the King had trained the technical music studio recording and re-mixing skills throughout the 1970s.

Like "Prince Jammy", Scientist set his own path and interesting direction with the introduction of electronic digitalised fusion in Dub Music with mixed but very experimentally wonderful results!

This album is not, in my opinion, his best: I'd much preferred his Dub Reggae's psychedelic music masterpiece,the eccentric, "Scientist Meets the Space Invaders" but my goodness, this album comes very close! Weird. Strange. Glorious.

One of the absolute killers of the dub genre. Scientist works wonders at the desk while the stellar Roots Radics lay some of the heaviest riddims this side of Prince Far I. As brought up by an earlier reviewer (asusu), the sound on this album is as fresh today as when it was originally recorded, testament to Scientist's knowing treatments.

Essential for fans of the genre.

Indeed a thick and deep roots dub album.
Nuff to enjoy!

I first heard this on Grand Theft Auto 3 and listened to nothing but the KJAH radio station. Five or six years on, this remains possibly my favourite album that I own, dub or otherwise. The sound quality is brilliant, especially considering it is dub made in 1981 - just check out any other dub album from the same era and you'll see what I mean. It raises the bar in my opinion, being experimental but without sacrificing any appeal to a more mainstream audience. Every track is fantastic - I would recommend it to anyone interested in dub or reggae in general.
