Album Review
Reviewed 2003-06-04 
Dorfmeister of Kruder & D presents a continuous mix of kooler dan kool dub cuts, many featuring digidub synth lines but not very cheesy. Righteous!

1. "Mature" R&B dub, sorta like SOS Band with big bass
2. Raspy soul croon over low-key chukka-chukka
3. Average peace-promoting lyrics over average tune
4. Oh yeah, pothead patois over a little dub march tempo (as if the heads could march)
5. Nice, but not especially redemptive
6. Got the echo-y horns going for it, but otherwise mediocre
7. Synth bass and muted saxophones prove pretty funky
8. The melody and the "catch a fire" mantra over the sinuous bass make this a standout
9. More jazzy late night than dub
10. Dub dressed up as Barry White - big bottomed, neatly dressed, amorous intentions
11. Again, a sample of soulful bit of vocalizing kicks this up a notch, yeah ...
12. Record clicks-and-pops put one in mind of Pole, but tinkly melody is sooo delicate
