Easy Star All-Stars
Originally formed as a backing band for the Easy Star label's reggae artists, the All-Stars are best known for Dub Side of the Moon, a reggae version of Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon, which has been on the reggae charts since its release in 2003. Following suggestions from an online poll of their fans, the All-Stars have reworked Michael Jackson's Thriller. The familiar songs flow well in the new style. However, since the remake is so close to the source material, Thrillah is somewhat of a disappointment, making the bonus dub tracks the best on the release.
