props to maya religious knives for this, who describes this 1980 reggae classic thusly: "Shit is fucking intense, some of my all time favorite jams—black + psychedelic, and perfect for springy Friday."
why is this record a classic? because it's really slow. The whole thing. It sounds like the twinklers nodding off while piloting a codeine-fuelled submarine to the underwater world of Zion, schools of incandescent laser fish passing the portal. Highlights include: pretty much every song, but especially "Since I Threw the Comb Away," which is up there with "I'm Not Ashamed" by Culture as great reggae testimonials to the proud militancy of having huge, unshorn shit-logs for hair.
