Adrian Sherwood Becoming a Cliché
- Words: Justin Hopper
- Label: Real World
Becoming a Cliché might be Adrian Sherwood's self-deprecating reference to his by-now trademarked post-reggae dub style. The On-U Sound headmaster's second "solo" album again exhibits Sherwood's signature melting pot of Middle Eastern, South Asian, and heavy Jamaican sounds. But it's the sound of 2010: When one is as future-bound as this, remaining rooted in a singular vision ain't a bad thing! That Sherwood's new album is brilliant is no surprise; that his sonic stamp is more noticeable than that of his high-caliber guests (Lee "Scratch" Perry, Dennis Bovell, etc.) might be, but that's okay, too.
