More stars!
Lanny Kaufer | Ojai, CA United States | 05/15/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album is as close to a masterpiece as humanly possible. It's the '"magnum opus" of an uncompromising artist who has reached beyond himself with every new effort. Each song has a different rhythm, a refreshingly unique feel, complemented by the perfect solo instruments. If you know LKJ's music, you know the rhythm section is always the dreadest. The poetry is awesome, piercing and beautiful. The unmistakable trance-inducing voice of the poet just grows better with age and experience. After 40 years of listening to jazz, blues, reggae and much more, and having followed LKJ's career from "Dread Beat An' Blood" to "More Time," I need more stars to rate this album. I dare you to listen to "Liesense Fi Kill" as far as the electric violin solo without pushing the repeat button. Buy this record and support Linton Kwesi Johnson's first album on his own label."

"where to begin. there is nothing else like this. this transcends all that has come before. it is the ultimate fusion of rock, jazz, blues, reggae, dub. lkj's voice, the music, and poetic observations of life around him and the community he shares transcends his immediate surroundings and reaches out to all realms of mankind. what he sees there is seen everywhere; thanks to the artist and his abilities.
thank you lkj for sharing yourself. nowhere have i heard such a fascinating blend of superior musical and poetic talent matching note for word to produce a sound that is its own. unique in every way. one can easily be drawn in by the steady beat, the hypnotic vocal intonations, the other musical instruments (lkj's voice is also indeed an instrument here) weaving their way in, around and through the poetry. drawn in to become one with the artist and his work. five stars? ten stars? the heavens do not have enough stars to adequately rate this!! enjoy it. be one with it. become all with it!!!"
LKJ Still Going Strong

"Just a fine recording. As usual, John Kpiaye plays some outstanding guitar. The song Hurricane Blues is haunting. While this is nominally a reggae band, how often do you hear solos with a flute another song features some strong Violin work.LKJ has an awesome and unique voice, couple this with his lyrics and the musicians and you have a great combination."
