Lee Perry's collaborations with Adrian Sherwood are always something special, and Rainford is no exception. The material ranges from ambient moments to sampled echoes of the Black Ark to horn sections in outer space, all underscored by Adrian Sherwood's deep and heavy production style. Scratch reins in his stream of consciousness vocals and sounds focused yet mischevious throughout, especially on the epic closing track, "Autobiography Of The Upsetter". While not reaching the heights of other Perry - Sherwood albums, Rainford is definitely the best work Scratch has done in years.
