Serious Lee Perry fans will debate between Secret Laboratory and Time Boom X De Devil Dead as Scratch's best solo album. Personally, I enjoy Secret Laboratory more. Working with kindred spirit Adrian Sherwood on production, it's an inspired collaboration and definitely one of the "must have" albums in a collection of Scratch's post-Black Ark material. The rocking "Secret Laboratory" sets the mood for the rest of the album: playful and fascinating lyrics on top of heavy Dub Syndicate rhythms. The CD reissue of the album contains two bonus tracks: "Too Much Money" and "Party Time".
