The fifth volume of Guidance's Hi-Fidelity Dub Sessions follows the path of its predecessors, with plenty of watered-down neo-dub tracks from a pool of producers that is mostly European. Throughout the years, Guidance has been more reliable as a semi-prominent house label; while these yearly compilations have thrown up the occasional gold nugget, most of the tracks that they've wrangled are better suited to background listening -- what's more, they tend to have more in common with second-generation trip-hop than Jamaican dub. Nonetheless, those who have enjoyed the series thus far shouldn't balk from giving this one some attention. Featured tracks include Thievery Corporation's "The Richest Man in Babylon (G Corp Dub)," Butch Cassidy Sound System's "Brothers and Sisters," and Stereotyp's "My Sound," with vocals from onetime Rhythm & Sound associate Paul St. Hilaire.
