Please ignore the previous reviewer, who clearly does not know what he's talking about. "I like reggae, and something with a groove, and that's not what this is, so it sucks" is NOT A REVIEW. Likewise, criticizing the people who do like this, and have heard of these artists, has nothing to do with the music itself (and no one over the age of, I don't know, FIFTEEN should be using the word "poseur"). Just because YOU haven't heard of something does not make it obscure, it just means YOU haven't heard of it.

That said, if you ARE someone who has heard of Tortoise or Coil or Bill Laswell or Spring Heel Jack or Mick Harris, and likes similar artists, then you will not be disappointed by this. The Tortoise track alone is incredible, a blistering, dubbed-out, seven minute drum workout that is as strong as anything they've ever done. The tracks by lesser-known artists, such as Earthling and Bedouin Ascent, are equally strong, and there is an amazing consistency to this compilation as a whole. Despite the fact that these artists are working in different genres (ambient, drum and bass, trip hop, and yes, reggae), they all share a common dedication to experimenting with sound and dub techniques.

dub music is not for everyone, but this is a very good sampler of "digital" or modern dub. while it would have been great to hear these tracks mixed in with older dubs, the selections are dark and menacing, exploring the role of dub in the genres of reggae, trip-hop and drum n bass. beware, once you fall into these eerie and soundscapes you may never be the same again.

it is true that those seeking true dub music will be disappointed. if u want some prince tubby, there is almost nothing here that would seem related. However, i think it is an amazing collection. There is a lot of great AMBIENT music on here, but if you want dancable tracks they are few. if you want to hear some intelligent electronic music, kick back with this collection. it is music to really listen to, or trip out on, but not partying boogy music.

This CD was in Spin's top 100 of the 90's. But that doesn't make it a reggae CD. If anything, this would be enjoyed by avant-garde stoners who want to impress people they know with the most obscure recording possible. It reminds me of college radio in the '90s: no such thing as an underground anymore, so let's just be weirdo poseurs and impress with how far out we're willing to go and still call it music and act like we like it so people will think that we're hip. Dancing is irrelevant, not to mention musicality.
The one real reggae track is the Two Bad Card track "Sergio Mendez" (available elsewhere, though I haven't heard the original album, a later Adrian Sherwood project; listen to it, and if you like it, get that instead), which is incorrectly identified here, band-wise. The Tricky track is almost amusical, the Mad Professor track not much better. So much for artists you've heard of. (yeah, yeah, Golden Palominos, disappointing too). If you wanted to program these two CDs just for dub reggae, I would say there are about 8 tracks that actually have a reggae type bass played somewhere on the track, or something like it (1: 1, 3, 6, 12; 2: 4, 9-11), but even these tend to be half ambient introduction before any grooving, meaning you can't just add it to your compilation unless you like four minutes of white noise equivalent introducing your groove tracks.
In short, if you are looking for a sonic environment for your drug experience in a sensory deprivation tank, this might work if you enjoy musical psychosis, and don't need rhythm or melody, or even tone. It could also work if you're interested enough in the 15 minutes of quality groove that you have to locate yourself. Otherwise, it's just a bummer for the groove seeker. Too bad, I thought it sounded like I could throw it on and groove to it. Not possible.
