Slipping a bit down to "GREAT COVER ALBUM" Thrillah: Very pop, sounds like they've lost their own voice.

Great for reggae music lovers as well as michael jackson fans.

Look, I love these guys, but their covers, as interesting a choice as they are, seem to get progressively more diluted, moving away from the industrial strength dub reggae that attracted my attention in the first place. Dub Side Of The Moon was magnificent in conception and execution, and Sergeant Pepper's was a genuine tribute with more attention to the original layout and timing of the songs. (I haven't heard the Radiohead cover). Thrillah moves towards R&B (not surprisingly!) and a Steely Dan-esque jazz/rock sensibility, but it seems to lack an 'edge', the jagged, rhythmic pulse so characteristic of reggae. Don't get me wrong, it's listenable, and will get a fair hearing at my place. The musicianship is terrific, and I admire the Stars' ability to take disparate material and transform it- some of the stuff they have taken on, if attempted by lesser hands, could have been terrible. However... it just lacks the raw, thumping anarchy of Lee 'Scratch' Perry or Prince Far-I. All in all, though, it's a good listen and you won't be too disappointed if your expectations are flexible. I'll be curious as to their next album-related project. My suggestion would be to cover (insert suggested album here). For what it's worth, I reckon 'Station To Station' (David Bowie) would make an interesting starting point.

Great cover album pulled off by a stellar group of artists. I have yet to be disappointed by easy star, but like I learned on reading rainbow, don't take my word for it. Check it out yo damn self!

This album is simply put one of the best cover albums of any band I have heard in a while. The entire thriller album is covered and beautifully at that. There is not one bad cover song on this album and anyone who buys this album is in for a treat. All in all this is a great record that anyone who likes reggae or just wants to hear a cover of thriller will enjoy.

The original THRILLER from Michael Jackson is a great classic album....Put it on a REGGAE DUB vibe and create a great REGGAE album!!!!! In my opinion, this DUB version add a new magic flavour to a old masterpiece!!!! WELL DONE!!!!!!!!

I just love everything these guys put out. I was first introduced to Dub Side of the Moon while sitting in a sushi place one night and have bought everything they have made since. They really honor the integrity of the original while bringing an entirely fresh and new feel to it. Would love to hear them cover Rush's 2112.

I love hearing this band's interpretations of classic albums, and this one is no different. Some of the tracks, like "Human Nature," lend themselves perfectly to reggae versions. On the other hand, a song like "Thriller" loses all of its creepiness when played Reggae style. But it is still worth hearing a Rastaman do the Vincent Price spoken word part!

A reggae type interpretation of all the songs on Michael Jackson's iconic Thriller album -- I got it out of curiosity, but am glad I did buy it, because it works a lot better than you'd think! There are no samples of any of the music or voice from Thriller on here, everything is recorded all new, vocals and music, and of course there are interesting variations on the melody of each song. It's very cool in my book, and I'm a big fan of MJ's music. (If you're interested in more MJ re-interpretation / cover versions, check out Snowblink's amazingly chill version of Human Nature.) Recommended if you like reggae type music or Michael Jackson or both...

It is easy to listen to but maybe too easy. I love the Thiller album and particularly the Thiller single but I almost missed it completely on this album.
