CD Reviews

Dark soulful rocksteady from Midwest white boys
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a fantastic CD. The strong point of the album is the attention to detail in songwriting. The overall song structures and chord change are subtly complex, the horn lines and vocals are oddly phrased, and the whole thing is still pleasing to listen to. The other reviewers who said this is upbeat and happy are whack. I quote from "Wishing for You:" "Second guessing all my thoughts / makes me feel so bad / It's the only thing I have." Dark to the point of psychosis; I love it. But it's not all gloom, there are some upbeat pleasant numbers, particularly the excellently-executed cover of Marcia Griffith's (Johnny Nash's) "Hold Me Tight." Other favorites include the lead off track "Change Up" and the deceptively simple "Mixed Blessing.""
Groovy soulful ska tunes from the Midwest's leading ska band
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Formerly Issac Green & Skalars, Isaac has given up his singing post to manage the band. Third wave ska, but no punk here, just smooth rocksteady R&B sounds, above average vocals, happy melodic songs.From St' Louis.DTM"
