    a crucial dub album to own, regardless of the later confusion with name changes and GTA 3 association. it has deep basslines, heavy reverbed drums matched with strange sound effects and great vocal samples. the idea explored on the album has an overall Halloween-esque feel to it and it sounds great in the dark. two of my finest memories of this album in my 20s playing it late at night in the headphones as the sounds really come alone and sitting in a squat and putting this album on for a smoking session. I'm not sure how the reissues sound but I recently got it on wax and the sound is terrific. I'm slowly working through some of his other releases to get a real feel for his sounds and music (i love the artwork of the early releases- another reason for purchasing them) but this for anyone new to the genre is a great starter wheel.

      One of the illest dub sessions ever created, must listen for I and I

        Scientist Rids The World Of The Evil Curse Of Junjo Lawes is certainly one of the best records of all time.

          This album will go down in history as one of the greatest DUB LP's to ever be released. What a production Scientist, The Roots Radics Band, & Henry Junjo Lawes! This album was a huge influence on my DUB love from the very start. Also what a blessing to hear the whole album on GTA 3; K-Jah with Horace "The Pacifist" Walsh ;)

            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.

                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.
