    More than just a remix album, Heavy Rain stands out on its own merit, demonstrating that Perry's inspiration and creative drive haven't dulled in his advanced age.

    A masterclass in mixology. [Jan 2020, p.113]

    Reggae/dub comes no more vital, nor far-sighted, in 2019. [Jan 2020, p.85]

    Heavy Rain is a surprisingly inspired piece of late-period dabbling from a dub master.

    [Rainford] was haled as a return to form, and Heavy Rain--an album of re-versions helmed by Sherwood accompanied by a suite of guests--feels similarly vital. [Jan 2020, p.28]

    The Brian Eno collaboration “Here Come The Warm Dreads”, despite having the cheesiest, winking at the camera/self-referential title, coalesces around a regal brass melody and popping rhythm section to created a solidly funky slice of spaced out dub. “Rattling Bones And Crowns” is sharper, darker take on the Rainford cut “Kill Them Dreams Money Worshippers”. [Dec 2019, p.52]

    É um álbum muito bom, eu gosto do conceito dele e da maneira em que as músicas sempre falam sobre algo que nós já passamos antes
