Diversity and experimentation have been the trademark of Jah Wobble 's musical approach since leaving PiL. He's dabbled in global folk traditions, poetry, new age music, jazz fusion, electronica, and Asian and African beat sounds, all read through the lens of dub reggae. No matter how deep he goes, it remains the building block for everything else. This double-disc compilation of 37 tracks offers the evidence. In his entertaining liner essay, Wobble writes: "I think dub is at its best when it is used with roots music, which normally tends toward pentatonic scales and no developed harmony.
Wobble employs aesthetics rather than chronological order in his sequencing. It bleeds into cinematic funk on "Kojak Dub," from Muwith a Herbie Mann -esque flute, sweeping strings, and chunky wah-wah guitars. There are four new tracks from Invaders of the Heart across these discs: "Metamorphosis" employs ambient reggae and dance music amid spacy jazz funk; "Forest Funk Dub" juxtaposes tropes by James BrownFela Forest Gate Dub - Jah Wobble - In Dub , Ray Barrettoand Herbie Hancock ; "Forest Fate Dub" is elastic, humid, and rootsy, while "Inspector Out of Space" delivers a hard interstellar ska groove.
The Thai choral chants on "Lam Saravane," from Molam Dubare peeled back to one voice on its dub version, and accompanied by strident folk fiddles, harmoniums, clattering percussion, and Forest Gate Dub - Jah Wobble - In Dub 's bass. The set closer is "Tyger Tyger," William Blake 's poem, soundtracked with an Pink Floyd - Complete BBC Sessions 1967-1968 yet majestic Celtic-cum-reggae melody.
