Album Notes and Credits
Liner Note Authors: Jonny Greenwood ; Johnny Clarke.
One of the pleasures of garnering a certain level of commercial and critical respect is that one's own personal taste becomes something to be held in high regard by others. On JONNY GREENWOOD IS THE CONTROLLER the Radiohead guitarist and sonic mastermind gets to show off his sizeable reggae collection. While neither celebrity mix discs or obscure reggae collections are a rarity, that doesn't mean that many aren't worth listening to. CONTROLLER, with its mix of deep cuts, obscure finds, and impeccable variety, is one such comp worth picking up.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.82) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[A]n idiosyncratic but smart sampler of Sixties and Seventies Jamaican hits and obscurities."
Q (p.123) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] selection of highly melodic '60s and '70s cuts....The Radiohead man's choices are reliably obscure..."
CMJ (p.41) - "[With] some forgotten gems. It's no surprise reggae has had a major impact on Jonny Greenwood's music, and it's exciting to hear cuts that influenced his band's more avant-garde releases..."
