      Dice Lloyd Bradley en "Bass Culture" que esta serie de discos de Scientist (las de los "cómics" por llamarla de alguna forma) llaman la atención por sus icónicas portadas más que por una genuina innovación en los derroteros del dub. Y algo de razón tiene en que no es una vuelta de tuerca a lo que su mentor, King Tubby, venía haciendo desde mediado de los setenta ni mucho menos se acercan a la genialidad (y locura) del mismísimo The Upsetter, Lee Perry (¿alguna vez alguien lo ha hecho?). Pero esto no es razón para quitarle mérito esta serie incontestable ya que si algo hizo Scientist fue perfeccionar el sonido, los efectos y la técnica de grabación del dub y hacerlo sonar con una precisión, profundidad y fidelidad que cuesta pensar que se grabó hace más de 40 años atrás. Y eso es razón suficiente para instalarlo como uno de los grandes nombres del Dub.

          In my humble opinion Scientist released three of the essential dub albums in the early 1980s: 'Heavyweight Dub Champion' (1980), '... Rids The World Of The Evil Curse Of The Vampires' (1981), and '... Wins The World Cup' (1982); all on the excellent Greensleeves label.

          The reason each of these albums are so well regarded (by me, at least) is the sheer strength of the tunes that Scientist engineers to dub perfection. As pointed out by renzelkouten below, Johnny Osbourne, Hugh Mundell, and Wayne Jarrett cuts are treated on this particular album; strong in their original state, but given true knowledge by the Scientist.

          Strongly recommended to fans of reggae, dub, and the psychedelic.

            Essential piece of dub education from King Tubby's Protege Scientist.

            Fantastic bass heavy music with gorgeous melodies and horn drops courtesy of Roots Radic as well as featuring fantastic vocal contributions most notably from some of Johnny Osbourne's finest works as well as the vocal talents of Hugh Mundell (RIP) and the always outstanding Wayne Jarrett.

            Paticular standouts include Never Stop Fighting, In Your Eyes and the monumental Give a Little Love (Just give that track a listen!). As with all Scientist releases from this time it has a brilliant Tony McDermott cover and, perhaps because it was the first I heard, is my favourite of them all.

            Light enough to cheer your mood and yet ultra heavy. The fine vocalists add an almost romantic edge to Scientists clinically cool top rate dub compositions.
