Dub Syndicate Pure Thrillseekers
- Words: Ross Hogg
- Label: Shanachie
On Pure Thrillseekers, the "world‘s greatest dub band" provides the sonic backdrop for some of reggae‘s finest vocalists. Cornell Campbell returns to classic form on "Tricks" and Gregory Isaacs sings a sufferer‘s song on "Kingston 14," but Luciano steals the show with his plaintive "One In A Million." Lest you think the band has forsaken their name, the album features a number of brilliant dubs. "Guns & Cocaine Crime" incorporates digital sounds alongside a country harmonica and minimal vocals from Jah Bless, and "Private Dub" is an even sexier mix of Isaacs‘ "Night Nurse" sequel "Private Secretary."
