    A groovy experience...

    Wow, what a blast! Mad Professor, certainly knows how to make this record funny and enjoying again! The SFX's some how scares the s**t out of you, especially when played loud. This is for sure a good dub CD, but it's even funnier if you already have ''Protection''. He some how manage to stick to the core of the songs, while, on the other hand, flips out completely!! Great!! Also credits to Neelle Hooper, everything she touches turns into gold.
