One of the OTHER really VERY best reggae albums...

(5 out of 5 stars)
"...of all time. Just behind "Red", ahead of "Sinsemilla". The bass lines are excellent. Robbie Shakespeare is at his best. "Emotional Slaughter" is so very...emotionally wrenching. Singer Michael Rose pours out his heart on that one.
"Eye Market"? "Fleety Foot"?!? What the heck does it all mean? Not a clue, but you feel like you know in your heart what he's going on about, in some way, when you hear that guy sing. His tortured, plaintive phrasing...Wow! I hate to be hyperbolic, but, er...the Jamaican Bach, maybe?
Sly plays Syndrums again on this one, but they still manage to sound real and pure, not silly or overly synthetic. The band is a little more electronic. But the mood is maybe more relaxed and atmospheric than "Red". Still very hypnotic and tight. In comparison, Uhuru start to lose focus and fall apart by "Anthem, at least in terms of the togetherness of the song structures.
I'd also add that these Uhuru albums are some of the very few reggae records that sound even more groovy and hypnotically cool to me than the dub versions."
