A year ago, The Archives released the critically acclaimed original Carry Me Home: A Reggae Tribute to Gil Scott-Heron and Brian Jackson. A big budget production by Eric Hilton (one half of Thievery Corporation) and Darryl “Trane” Burke. Superbly performed, recorded and marketed reggae retro sound. The Dubversion was only a matter of time. Now it is available: "Carry Me Home Dub“By The Archives (Montserrat House). The big budget can be heard with every note. Everything is just right in terms of sound. And yes, of course it is more real Dub, although not infrequently vocals can also be heard. But the music has nothing to do with Sound System nights. She wants to be played at breakfast on Sunday mornings, or at a sophisticated – but cool – dinner. These are "level" Dub, tasteful and stylish. But all too often, there is a bit of boredom inherent in “sophisticated” works. Everything is calculated, reasonable and balanced, reflected and intellectual. There is simply a lack of what is fun: hard contrasts, surprising, sometimes disruptive ideas, courage and daring. So I don't really know how to rate the album. It is undoubtedly of absolutely high quality, but I don't have a lot of fun listening to it. phew! Maybe I just lack the level.
