We don't need no water... let it burn!
Julian Hayter | Seattle, Washington United States | 07/23/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Unbelievably and indubitably a bona fide, and fortified roots reggae album! If you don't have Firehouse Rock in your CD collection and you consider yourself a reggae fan, you may need to re-evaluate what you think you know about Jamaican music. The Roots Radics, especially the rythym section, utilize (with supreme efficacy, I might add) and epitomize the manipulation of space and time so often associated with reggae "riddims." On top of the Radics, the Wailing Souls add ethereal vocals, while staying masterfully conscious. Firehouse Rock is a beautifully recorded piece of audible Jamaican history and an absolute must have."
Oh What A Feeling!

"Simple equation: Junjo + Roots Radics + Wailing Souls = One of the finest reggae albums ever produced. The Wailing Souls sounds so harmonious in this album. They sing over often used Roots Radics/Junjo Lawes rhythms which should be instantly recognizable to fans of reggae who listen to this great album. This is definitely an album to have in any reggae collection."

"Like Reggae? Then you will like this classic CD by the Wailing Souls. The Wailing Souls are probably the most underrated Reggae band to come out of the Jamaican scene in the 1970's and this is one of the finest. Great harmonies, steady roots beats, and conscious lyrics-Go deh!"
