Synopsis

Album Description
Mixing impassioned political and social protest with stellar Rasta bats, these sons of Jamaican immigrants-led by David Hinds-rose out of humble Birmingham origins to become one of the U.K.'s all-time greatest reggae acts and a globallyl revered band. Their live shows-both headlining and opening for Bob Marley and others-are legendary. Steel Pulse's Elektra debut album, True Democracy, ranks as one of their strongest, and Earth Crisis further built on their legacy as musical innovators and human rights advocates. Often fusing elements of jazz, dancehall, hip-hop, and Latin music into a roots reggae base, Steel Pulse will forever remain icons of the genre.

Rock with the pulse...
Harvey Raygun | Tucson, North America | 09/25/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Steel Pulse is one of the truest reggae groups currently on the circuit. I saw them at a fabulous show in Tucson, AZ of all places, and was deeply impressed by the band's committment to continually playing good music at shows. "Earth Crisis" came out after Steel Pulse hit a rough patch with cheesy '80s rifts that sounded like fake reggae coming out of the elevator speakers in the Waldorf Jamaica. Luckily, they crept out of the shadow that the music industry seemingly imposed upon the entire genre, directing the massive popularity reggae music saw in the 1970's into some electronically-dependant wraith in the next decade. After apologizing profusely in their albums, Steel Pulse regained their foothold as a band that plays amazing music with meaingful lyrics in an age where reggae music fans are few and far between. To understand the real message behind the music, look no farther than Steel Pulse."
