CD Reviews

This comp. is OUTSTANDING
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It's rare to find a comp. where every single song is good! I don't think there is a bad song on there, 74 min. of rad ska!"
Very Nice

"A good collection of Ska with a female front person. "Skypager" by the Shanksters is exceptional. The Usuals have a excellent track as well. If you like Ska you'll hear some hard to find to impossible to find stuff. Including some tracks for those of us that give rein on occation to the Goddess. Sample "Don't Step On My Fingers" by the The Solicitors."

"Just yesterday I listened to this CD and was still blown away. I say still, because I brought it in winter of 1998 and haven't taken it out of rotation since! Having more than a fair share of ska compilations, this one is by far one of the best; of female or non-female vocalists! In my opinion the first half of the CD is rock solid with tracks from Metro Stylee, Franceska, and Isaac Green & the Skalars (whose track is presented here in a superior mix than what is on their LP) with a nice variety of ska "styles" including rocksteady and third wave. The second half of the CD is not at strong but contains the steller "Worried About You" by Mealticket and "Why" by Highball Holiday. The rest are intances of ok music, but bad singing (Like on "Hey" done by Viskacity). But the good tracks make up for them 10 times over. A highlight from the 90s ska revival period."
