CD Reviews

Nothing Better
Burnin' and Lootin' | 09/27/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I agree 100% with all the previous reviews of this cd. There is no better roots reggae out there today and this has become one of my favorite albums. I just wanted to point out that if you really liked this album then you should check out their release "Jubilees of Zion" which was recorded in 2002. This is not available i don't think on amazon but you can get it through their website. Midnite has many albums which vary somewhat in style and i've found this album to be the most like "Unpolished". Although i don't think its quite as good as "Unpolished", its most definitely worth checking out and is very good. Also don't miss "Ras Mek Peace" which was recorded only using two mics and contains no added effects. Its like you're listening to them play in your basement and their talent really shows through."
Stunning

"This is the original sound reggae fans have been searching for. Hailing from St. Croix and living in Washington DC for the past several years,
Midnite has one of the most incredible voices ever heard in Vaughn Benjamin
--somehow powerful and sad and dripping with emotion in every lyric. "Lift up your head, Selassie I,
I and I chant Rastafari, tell them come
look inna the Lion's eye." If you want to be even more blown away,
pick up "Seek Knowledge Not Vengeance," Midnite's new release. All of their
albums are a stunning leap in the roots reggae sound."
Wow!

"I have over 300 reggae albums in my collection which includes some of the best of all times. I just happened to be listening to XM radio one day in my car and stumbled across this group. To make a long story short, I ordered "Unpolished". These guys are bad to the bone! This is what reggae is all about. Get this cd, you will be amazed at the talent of this group. This ain't that dancehall crap that you can't understand half of what's being said, its solid...believe me."
