I also think this is Scratch's best lp post-Black Ark. From The Secret laboratory is more playful but a bit more light weight. This one however is heavy and dark. if you like mid 80's Dub Syndicate then this is for you.

My vote would go to From The Secret Laboratory, with Time Boom being a close second.

probably adrian sherwoods best production, decent lp and some really good lyrics from lsp, mixing is superb and so is the playing...

It's one of few Perry albums I've never heard, but I might try it if comments are so favourable.

Though often disappointed with the post-Ark stuff, I think one track stands out as ranking with Scratch's best of any era - 'I Am A Madman' from that Battle of Armagideon/Millionnaire Liquidator thingy. Now if Time Boom etc. sounds anything like that... :P

I respect your opinion, but I must disagree quite vociferously. Time X is a major work. It is extremely heavy and dense which might turn some people off. It tackles important events of our times. A song like SDI comes to mind. But an earlier poster might have nailed it - If one isn't into the On-U sound than this LP won't work for you.

fantastic album
either that or Lee Perry/Mad Professor - Mystic Warrior have to be his best post Black Ark work IMO

I have it and have no idea what it sounds like, which suggests i thought it was **** at the time. Will dig out and try again for curiosity sake.

I wouldn't call this 'digitised roots'. Most rhythm tracks are played by Style Scott / Flabba Holt with real drums and bass except for "Music & Science Lovers" which features keyboard bass.

In comparison to all albums with Scratch as lead vocalist including his Black Ark & pre-Black Ark tunes, it still ranks high, imo...


As stated above it very much depends on one's taste for On-U Sound records - I'm a sucker for much of this "over-produced" stuff :wink:

I much prefer 'From the Secret Laboratory' and would rank it among one of my all-time favourites. 'Time Boom X De Devil Dead' is definitely worth owning, although I don't really find it all that enjoyable listening!

carrying on from ash's off topic post, i would say ghetto priests cd on on-u sounds is well worthwhile too. i like it more every time i hear it. the name is slipping me though...
