Reviewing music blind can sometimes yield unexpected results. Chucking on the new CD from Dog on to the stereo at an incautiously loud volume, I thought I'd blown my windows out as an ocean deep blast of sub-bass pulsed through the speakers. Settling down for some pleasantly rough dub business, I got my second shock when it morphed into some kind of horrible dub version of William Blake's Jerusalem. Which is a shame as the clashing guitars and vocals ruined what was shaping up to be a pretty good song.
On the flip, peace is restored as the vocals take a firm backseat to the rolling drums and bass on the Neverland Dub. Vocals snippets are kept to a minimum, with a liberal sprinkling of delay and reverb over the whole affair.
Pleasant enough, but one can't escape the feeling that Heavenly might be barking up the wrong tree if they're expecting this to spearhead some digi-dub revival.
