  • Summary: The first true solo album for the Cypress Hill DJ includes vocal appearances by Amy Trujillo, Everlast, Josh Todd (Buckcherry), and Greg Dulli (Afghan Wigs).

  1. The album's subtle build from bleak electronica to ethereal alternative rock is a stunning accomplishment; his productions haven't maintained this kind of flow since the first Soul Assassins disc.
  2. Dust is an atmospheric tour de force that doesn't just come from left field, it breaks through the outfield wall.
  3. Trip-hop has been brought into the 21st century, at last.
  4. 60
    An ephemeral, genre-less mix of beat-driven mood music. [#15, p.127]
  5. A third of this record sounds like the Cocteau Twins covering Enya, and another third sounds like a trip-hop Blind Melon... But the other third is pure Muggs.
  6. 60
    He has gone for the full trip hop/psych-rock concept album--a major hazard given such previous near-missees as UNKLE's Psyence Fiction--but it's not at all bad. [Apr 2003, p.118]
  7. It's an unrefined, poorly calculated mess.
