Synopsis

Product Description
A semi-remarkable album from Afrika Bambaataa, following up on the success of Planet Rock. This one has less full-fledged anthems, but what's here isn't bad at all. Bambaataa's Theme uses his trademark mix of electronic backings and heavier beats. Tension slows down and softens with female vocal leads. Rock America and the cover of MC5's Kick out the Jams are closer stylistically to Planet Rock, with added guitar riffs throughout. On side B, he moves into more straightforward old school rap and beat-laden grooves immersed completely in the funk tradition, including Bionic Kats, a knockoff of Atomic Dog. For Bambaataa fans, this album is certainly a worthwhile addition. - Adam Greenberg, All Music Guide
