Magnetic Mirror Master Mix is a fine collection which has been almost made obsolete by Pressure Sounds Voodooism compilation: the first six tracks of this album ended up being the cornerstone of Voodooism, but the remaining tracks are all exclusive to this album. All of them are excellent: Scratch's anti-Pope "Bafflin' Smoke Signal"; "Captive", a very dread lecture about the plight of Africans in the western world; Brother Roy's "Different Experience", a bass heavy jazz skank; and "Living My Life", a wonderful and seldom-heard song from Keith Texon (AKA Keith Rowe). The CD version by Trochantor should be avoided, as it is more or less a CD-R release and of dubious origin.
