Simply Smashing Pop-Reggae
Keeley Stevens | 07/18/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This Are Two Tone is the summary disk put out by the record company that goes by that name. It's all of the hits by famous groups of that time period.The music is hard to explain. Some would say "ska", or others "pop-reggae." I say it's just plain good!There are happy songs, there are sad songs. But all of them are fast, jumping songs. Serious mood-music."

Two Tones of Fun

(4 out of 5 stars)

"At the start of the 1980s Two Tone was the UK's most exciting new musical movement. Bands like Madness, The Selecter, The (English) Beat and The Special AKA, all on the Two Tone label, revived the Jamaican ska beat and created a new rhythmic sound that took youth culture by storm.

This is a valuable introduction to the Two Tone beat, but unfortunately anything but complete, although all the classic early hits are here: Gangsters, Madness, On My Radio, Tears Of A Clown, etc. The group Madness is underrepresented as they're the band that ultimately achieved the greatest success.

Worst of the omissions in my opinion: The Prince by Madness, Let's Do Rocksteady by The Selecter. There is another incomplete Two Tone compilation titled Too Much Two Tone but the most complete and thorough is The Two Tone Compilation: A Checkered Past."
