If you must have one Easy Star...

This is not the one. I mean, actually, this is a great album, but I would send a new acolyte to the Easy Star Concept Album Dub Concept to either of their other albums here first. Easy Star's Lonely Hearts if you want something more upbeat and Radiodread if you prefer your dub darker. Eventually, you will want all three anyway.

Easily dubbed one of the best cover albums

The idea of a dub version of Dark Side of the Moon makes little sense, until one listens to this —a perfect cover album if ever there was one.

Pulled it Off

i was skeptical for sure, but they pulled it off. fun, familiar, good stuff.

Bullseye

Good musicians can put any song to a reggae beat, but who would think that giving the treatment to a whole album would hit the mark? These guys did, and this works amazingly well.

Fun stuff

Pink Floyd's Dark Side of The Moon is one of the best selling albums ever, and far too many have tried to cover it in either a serious or funny way. THIS ONE WORKS. If you can lighten up about spoofing the original, then the comedy - the unexpected instruments/sounds and the slight twists on the lyrics - are loads of fun. The reggae music works better than you could guess.

Just OK.

Some good tunes. Not great.

Both Clever and Amusing

Share it with friends that are fans of Pink Floyd and you will all likely get a good chuckle ..... the special effects appear to be pretty well synchronized with the original yet utilizing different "tools". Very Comical, yet the music is surprisingly enjoyable.

What a surprise . . .

Have not listened to much Floyd since my cassette tape collection became obsolete 20 years ago, but do enjoy the occasional dash of reggae. Better than I expected? How about simply tremendous on its own. Really shockingly good.

A real treat

frethepig

Even for someone who (like myself) has listened to the original more times than I'd like to admit. I just wonder if this works with "The Wizard of Oz," too...

Just pure excellence

EMUSIC-01CDD4E8

in realizing the idea and then again in the implementing and executing the project. Subtle details come out with every pass-through. If you love reggae but sometimes get bored of the repetition from song to song, then this is an album to explore new ways to use the beats, sounds, FXs and all the other fun things that reggae brings to the soundscape. Take this in with a doobie, uhm i meen a spliff man.

It was one of those really stupid ideas that we can all be grateful someone had the guts to follow through with. Yes, it’s a reggae version of the Pink Floyd classic Dark Side of the Moon, every track drastically reworked and presented in the same order as on the original album. And yes, it works far, far better than you’d have any right to expect. The artists vary from the relatively obscure (Kirsty Rock, Dollarman) to the big-time (Corey Harris, Frankie Paul, the Meditations) and the musical styles range from roots to dancehall to jungle. Every track works well, but highlights include a very fine (and uncredited) jungle mix of “On the Run” and the great singer-deejay combo track “Time,” on which Corey Harris’ chesty baritone singing voice is nicely counterbalanced by Ranking Joe’s speed-rap. There are several bonus dub mixes tacked onto the end of the program, and while none of them is revelatory they don’t detract from the proceedings, either. At the end you realize that you were wrong to even think this was a dumb idea to begin with — dub’s psychedelic mysticism is a perfectly good match for Pink Floyd’s mannered weirdness. Highly recommended. – Rick Anderson
