Black Uhuru lines from Uruguay
Jorge MVD | Montevideo, Uruguay | 10/31/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"No soy fan del reggae, pero Brutal es el must del reggae que he escuchado. En Uruguay el sonido Black Uhuru recién se hizo conocido a partir de la difusion en las FM de Brutal a fines de los '80. La canción mas difundida , y que aún se escucha en las radios, es "Dread In The Mountain", que aquí es un clásico como "Jammin" de Marley o "Johnnie B.Goode" de Tosh. Brutal quizas no sea la esencia de Black Uhuru, pero es muy bueno el trabajo de Junior Reid en los vocales. "Great Train Robbery" suena magistral. Highly reccomendable!!! Buy it now!!!"
