Not their best, but gems reside

"I had put down this album for a few years and recently picked it up again and was surprised at how much I had slept on this!!
I have to disagree with "Sean" on this one. This album is certainly not unbearable - far from it. At its worst, the lyrics are banal and the music edges dangerously close to outright cheesy (see "Mr. Music"). My theory on this is that the rhythms have moved from the drum kit into the drum machine.
But a few of the songs on this album would deserve consideration on a "Best of" disc. "Selector" hops along with Joseph Hill and an unknown guest celebrating the joy of the sound system. "Life", "Sufferer", and "Still Rest My Heart" all manage to touch on themes discussed in reggae music with freshness.
So even though there are better Culture albums out there, please don't throw the baby out with the bathwater. Geez!"

"I won't spend much time on this album because I can't bear to listen to it again to make this review.There are so many other Culture lps to be had that this one, while it hs a good track or 2 on it, should be ignored. I have no idea what happened during the making of this album, but it never gets the flow that most of their excellent lps, like the classic "Two Sevens Clash" or "Africa Stand Alone" has.the 2 lps I mentioned should be siught after 1st, then spread out and see where your tastes lie. This lp is one of very few that I do not recommend for anyone."
Not Culture's Best

"Oh mfowethu eG-town, yes I hear that you love Culture, but this is by far not their best work. If you want to hear some heavy sounds from Culture, check out "Harder Than the Rest", "Trod On" or "17 Dub Shots". "Two Sevens Clash" is also crucial but not as consistently good. Shap bhuti wami."
