Format: Audio CD
Mad Professor has produced his fair share of cerebral works over the last ten years with Mafia and Fluxy.

Then there is Mad Professor's historical status and contribution to the genre -- Everyone who has experienced Shaka has been transformed by the experience -- What is not often mentioned however, is Mad Prof's contribution to Shaka's ascendance and transcendence -- the majority of Shaka's much sought after 12's and albums recorded between 1981 to 1984, were engineered by the Professor. And that includes the ground breaking "Commandments Of Dub Volume 1".

Back to this album now -- "Alien Invasion" features sublime vocal chants, splintered, introspective and cold piano works -- "Stone From Nakhia" dissolves linear beats and time concepts as the Professor draws you into his imaginative landscape. "Dub The Clairvoyant" is pure dub impressionism.

So this is a worthy venture -- restrained, subtle and dreamlike. A possible reservation and objection in places however, is Dave Fluxy's occasional over use of a digi bass drum, which tends to obscure the subtlety and intelligence at the heart of Mad Prof's rhythms -- Rather than deepen the soundscape, the bass drum seems to put limits on it, drawing up parameters around the freefall of Mad Prof's imagination. Mad Prof's insightful light touch at the controls surely doesn't require this.

But perhaps that's simply a subjective opinion -- digi stepper's use of bass drum still (inexplicably?) seems to consistently draw new audiences and listeners to reggae -- so perhaps Fluxy is simply giving the people what they want?

But ultimately -- how could one possibly resist an album with titles like "Maniac From Mars", "Spaceman From Baghdad" and "Genetic Academic"?!
