On this the final 12 inch installment from dOP’s critically acclaimed debut album Greatest Hits, everyone’s favorite trio of merry pranksters bring their carnival cabaret to a dark and twisted end.
Opener No More Daddy sets menacing heavy handed piano against plunging rave up synth stabs as the back drop to the kind of twisted lyricism that only Jaw can deliver. Talk Show continues the proceedings with a sexed up puddin’ on the ritz alike lounge groover with clarinets and horns sweeping across the stereo field and the ghost of Art Blakey holding down the backbeat. Continuing their tradition of enlisting only the creme de la crème of remixers, Innervisions darlings Âme turn in a late night epic take on No More Daddy filled with the slow burning tension only they are capable of. Slow jam U R closes the release in fine style with a slice of orchestral exotica perfectly crafted to takes it’s rightful place as the main theme in John Carpenter’s next Caribbean horror flick. Here’s hoping the next album isn’t too far away.
