Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 12/10/99, p.124
3.5 stars (out of 5) - "...charged with pent-up vigor and social rage that they make it impossible not to get swept up in the rush..."
Entertainment Weekly - 3/13/98, p.76
"...Recalling the Clash in their dance-music phase or a more groovealicious Rage Against The Machine, Asian Dub Foudnation kick out the jams with aplomb; in the process, they become more than a caustic Cornershop for club kids." - Rating: B+
CMJ - 12/21/98, p.5
"...documents the Indian-Asian plight as it manifests itself within the societal structure of the U.K., expressed through the band's lethal dub attack and dissonant experimentation with hip-hop, jungle, punk and traditional Indian music..."
Vibe - 9/98, p.290
"...Deeder's frenzied raps and Dr. Das's body-blow bass grooves forge a black noise you can't hide from..."

RAFI'S REVENGE is the kind of album that began to pop up with increasing frequency as the '90s wore on; influenced by a wide variety of musical traditions, it transcends its pan-cultural roots to create a new paradigm, bowing to its roots but forging a new, postmodern identity. Throughout this arresting effort, Asian Dub Foundation incorporates breakbeats, funky guitar and keyboard riffs, Eastern melodic touches, drum-and-bass, and reggae. The staccato, dance hall-style vocals skip and stutter across the frenetic rhythms and complex musical textures. Though RAFI'S REVENGE is populated largely by electronically generated sounds, there's enough of an organic sensibility (not to mention the various ethnic traditions evoked) to create a winning warmth and accessibility.
