<i>Good evening and greetings you people of the Universe - this is Lee ''Scratch'' Perry - <br />The Mighty Upsetter - madder than mad, dreader than dread. redder than the red,<br />dis yah one heavier than lead. We are here at the turntable terranova, it means, <br />we are taking over. We're taking over the air, we're taking over the mounts,<br />we're taking over the star, we're taking over the sun, we're changing time,<br />we're changing power, we're changing grace, we're changing space,<br />we're doing things that His Majesty sent us to do in this Armageddon.''</i>

The titles on this record reflect Perry's obsession with kung fu movies,
replacing his earlier fascination with spaghetti westerns.
Regardless of title and cover, this is a sterling example of the Upsetter's art.
The great Augustus Pablo adds his melodica to most of the proceedings.
The effects are wonderful and reminiscent of Pablo's contemporary work with legendary producer King Tubby.
Pablo's presence has a leavening effect on Perry's usual brand of craziness,
though the odd buzz and whistle still creep in.
Overall, this is a gentler, dreader recording than most of what leaked from the Black Ark,
and one fans of either Mr. Perry or Pablo shouldn't be without.
