- LEE PERRY
CD: Snapper UK/Secret Records
Produced by Lee Perry and Roger Lomas
Alien Starman was Scratch's follow up to the Grammy Award winning Jamaican ET, and it's arguably a much better album. Scratch cuts out the confusing double tracked vocals and gives much cleaner and restrained performances. British producer Roger Lomas once again sat behind the mixing desk with Scratch.The music more or less follows the blueprint that Scratch created in the 1990s: rambling lyrics with female backing vocals over music that often borders on rock. No, it's not always reggae, but if you have a problem with that, take it up with Scratch!
