Back To The Roots

"Culture's lead singer, Joseph Hill is an unassuming, humble and friendly man, who is small in stature. Those who meet him are often unprepared for his tranformation onstage, when he sings with Culture. Somehow, Hill is tranformed into a towering giant, a lion, and avenger for the power of Rastafari when he picks up the microphone to sing. This kind of charisma that of a man who has rasta in his heart. To his credit, Joseph Hill has maintained a steady course, and both his Rastafarian philosophy and the music of Culture has remained with the roots of reggae music, despite over thirty years of strange mutations in Jamaican reggae music. "Harder Than the Rest" is exactly what the title purports it to be.... the hardest and most straight ahead collection of roots reggae when conscious music ruled, and Rastafari was the source of all reggae. Perhaps roots consciousness has fallen from fashion, but jah people will never forget how important Culture was and still is. I love Culture's "Two Sevens Clash" and "Baldhead Bridge" but this CD is truly harder than the rest and proves that reggae music neither began or ended with Bob Marley."

"I don't own this album (yet), but whenever I hear it it makes me want to rush out and buy it, only I can't find it anywhere. It's so beautiful all the way through, but "play skillfully" almost brings a tear to my eye. It's lyrical content, melody and harmonies are out-of-this-world. Buy this now."
Harder than the rest indeed

"I picked up this album at a used record shop and after listening to it couldn't understand why anyone would want to give it away. This an album for the individual who can, and believe me will, appreciate and recognize the roots of culture, and their ability to continually re-create it. It overwhelmingly defines the soul and depth of Culture's beat, a legacy that has created numerous breathtaking albums. None as fine as this. Perfect vocal harmonies and persuasive vibes lift this album above the rest. Do yourself a favor and purchase this album."
