The album is tracked in a showcase style with the vocal tracks followed immediately by the dub versions. While Perry’s lyrics of late have been somewhat disjointed, abstract, and in some cases incomprehensible, Back On The Controls finds him in fine form, his voice oscillating between socially conscious to downright personal, and at times acting as an instrument layer in itself. While it fails to fully evoke the inventiveness and low-fidelity of the true vintage “Black Ark sound,” Boyle succeeds in creating a sound that is authentically Perry – an organically earthy sound that is heavy and devoid of the slickness that one would expect from a modern recording studio.

Lee “Scratch” Perry Back On The Controls is Perry’s best work since 2003’s Jamaican E.T., for which he was awarded the Grammy for Best Reggae Album, and will surely stand as one of the best reggae releases of 2014, which is noteworthy considering how different it sounds from contemporary reggae. It is an album that even his harshest critics must acknowledge, and one that leaves unquestioned his relevance as an artist and producer. This is the album that the most serious “Scratch-heads” were hoping for, and one in which they will find little to criticize.
