Reggae for the masses but with love

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was just browsing and saw that only 5 people have rated this album, which really does not do the band or this album justice. The album is allot older than the '97 cd release, late 80s i guess, vinyl era. This album was a success in Europe, "where did I go wrong" was perhaps their second most commercially successful song, "red red whine" (not on this one) being number one. For the non reggae listener this is a great entry album. It basically takes reggae and goes pop with it, spinning some sweet melodies in the process. However, what makes UB40 so unique is that they have made some more accessable mainstreamed reggae without it sounding fabricated. They also made serious "true" reggae, as in their labor of love series, and I feel that this comes through in their pop oriented work. In part thanks to the nuanced melancholy voice of one of their lead vocals, UB40 has made many a lasting song in their long career, and this album is probably the best place to get started on them."
