CD Reviews

Twinkles best
nico mccoy | Minneapolis,MN | 01/16/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I think the other reviewer has got this one confused with another twinkle album. Alot of their cd's are average, but this is hands down the best one! With a dread punch heavy enough to knock down the walls of Babylon. Seriously I think that guy has his Twinkles mixed up. Check out the review in the "Reggae Rough Guide" by Steve Barrow. They also say it is their best. Their other Virgin release "Praise Jah" is also good, but has a alot of weak tunes, whereas this one smokes from start to finish. With a distinct style, soulful & organic. And check out their trademark trippy almost si-fi snyth. If you only get one Twinkle Brothers get this one."
COSMIC RASTA VIBRATIONS?

"This CD is BEAUTIFUL from start to finish! It has a very hypnotic-cOsmic vibration that had my head nodding involuntarily! Some of the cosmic noises in the tracks are so funky that I jumped up out of my chair in amazement like the Atl Falcons finally scored a d#mn touchdown!!! This is the greatest reggae CD I bought in 2006-hands down! If you can appreciate a reggae sound different than -Most- of what you hear & a soulful vibration that will transport you to the seashore under the moonlit skies of Negril with a Jamaican fruit punch in one hand & your "G" in the other, then grab this CD & judge for ya-self! I was Only dissapointed that I hadn't gotten it sooner!

Bless-Up Ya-self!"
