Dub Side of the Moon (2003)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Feb 18, 2003; Lead Performance: Easy Star All-Stars

Call it a stoner's harmonic convergence. Here some pot-friendly Jamaican toasters join musicians from the reggae label Easy Star to cover every track off the ultimate album for getting toasted: Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon. Rastas Frankie Paul, Ranking Joe, and others deliver the space-rock classic with more vocal finesse than anyone in Floyd managed. Their dub bass lines make this music newly mind-expanding and, for the first time, sexy.
