CD Reviews

Music is great, the poetry gets old
Guru Web | Seattle, WA | 01/11/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The music on this CD is great. The poetry is compelling the first few times, but after that it gets on your nerves. There's one spot on this CD that made me laugh out loud the first time I heard it, where the poet goes from talking about famine and murdering a bailiff and landlord to saying "and then I went for a drink..." It's the ultimate nonsequitor, but probably not intended to be funny. I plan on making my own copy of this CD without the poetry. I sorta wish Wobble had just been inspired by the poetry and not actually included it. But again, the music is great, jazz and world music with constantly changing beats and instruments."
Sounds of the Celtic Poets, Jah Wobble style.
Joseph P. Ulibas | Sacramento, CA, USA | 06/27/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The Invaders of the Heart capture the music of the celtic poets. Jah Wobble sets the poetry to a mixture of eastern influenced jazz and traditonal celtic music. One of the poems was written by former Pogue Shane MacGowan.
This was the first disc released by Jah Wobble's music label 30Hertz. Wobble had a nasty falling out with his former label Island Records. The music is great and enjoyable. The raspy vocals by Ronnie Lane only add to the
album's charm.

Strongly recommended."
