Lee "Scratch" Perry exploring synths and getting ready for his black ark sound. This album is worth buying just for "Kentucky Skank"- reggae, dub, real funky and mean. For those not familiar with Perry, maybe try something else and for those who are ready for him to enter your life... get it now! It'll grow on you fast! If you are a fan of dub or Mr. Perry in general, this is a must buy. The last two tracks are incredible and the last "waap you waa" may be one of the best dub tracks I've ever heard.
