"With a wave of his magical rod of correction, Lee Perry of the Space Police is off again on his journey through myths and minds," read the sleeve notes on this 1991 album. A fine description: Lord God Muzick is a very good album, getting my vote for some of Scratch's best post-Black Ark work. Working with his old buddy Niney The Observer, Scratch dishes out fast and furious lyrics but also manages to rein in his zany "word salads" and double-tracked vocals that make so many of his other solo albums so confusing. The music is a appealing mix of digital and older rhythms from Niney's vaults, a welcome change from other Scratch albums from this period. The most startling song on the album is "Colt The Game", a funny and controversial tune where Scratch dishes out scorn and ridicule on Bunny Lee. Clearly Scratch and Niney had a lot of fun making this album.
