Easy Star All-Stars

The Easy Star All-Stars started as a mere studio band for the Easy Star label in 1997 and immediately gained fame in 2003 for their rasta-laced version of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of The Moon, dubbed Dub Side of the Moon. Following %u2028that momentum, the %u2028reggae constructionists %u2028have reggae-ized many %u2028artists (including The Beatles and Radiohead), and, as of this August, released a birthday homage to Michael Jackson, Thrillah. The album takes the King of Pop’s famously dancey tunes from that famous album—seven of the nine songs were No. 1 singles—and transforms them into a collection of dub-reggae skankin’ tracks. The result is an ear-friendly beginner’s guide to reggae that manages to still hold weight with hard-core dread heads.
