History, Mystery, Prophecy is one of the weaker Lee Perry solo albums. Recorded at a time when Scratch had a long-standing grudge with Island Records, the album suffers from watered down synth pop arrangements and sounds very dated, even embarrassing at times. However, the album is saved by a few good songs: "Mr. Music", an enjoyable pop reggae groove, "Daniel", and the hilarious, X-rated "Bed Jamming".
