Good one from Ziggy and the Melody Makers
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I have a hard time understanding why some consider this album a failure. What failure? The title cut struts it's groove with the best of reggae and Ziggy sings AND writes with passion and grit. The very next cut, "Brothers and Sisters," is equally as good and the other songs and performances all have a lot to offer. Sure, Ziggy has more than a passing resemblance to his father, Bob Marley. So what? There's enough examples of reggae around nowadays which show a lowering of the righteous fire that originally stoked it, so when that fire bursts forth, as it does here, that's GREAT!"

"First off, me, being a bit of a marley fan, its completely possible my opinion *might* be a bit tainted :)But in all honestly I cant see how anyone who enjoys Ziggy on other albums doesn't enjoy this one. With so many different feels on the songs its one of my very favorites - Head Top has a strong dance hall style - while "There She Goes" is tender, emotional, with just enough beats per minute to keep it from being a slow dance song. "African Herbsman" and "X Marks the Spot" sound much like the style on "One Bright Day" which is my favorite. While he has lots of poppy and happy lyrics here also, "World so Corrupt" and others are always there to jump you back and show he's got a deeper side.Shannon"
