War slip into the introverted darkness
olofpalme63 | auf der flucht! | 04/02/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

Never has an LP appealed to such a wide range of music lovers. War's 1971 release (their second offering in the post-Burdon era) "All Day Music" delivers the goods and then some. From the summer haze beginings of the title track to the dark isolation of the hit single "Slippin Into Darkness". "All Day Music" never fails to hold on to your attention. You become engulfed by its unsuspecting power.

Any metal clad rocker would have tipped his hat to Howard Scott's guitar riffs in "Nappy Head" (which was supposed to make an appearance in the film "Ghetto Man", but was never released), a moving, chilling score that will garner many repeat plays. "Nappy Head" is the formula to any night out and about town in your V8. War even close out the set with the live stomper "Baby Brother" (which would later turn up in the studio on 1973's "Deliver The Word" and released as a single).

"All Day Music" turned into the soundtrack to anyones daily routine. Some will argue that this wasn't as powerful as "The World Is A Ghetto" or as commercial as "Why Can't We Be Friends?". Make no mistake, this is War in top form musically and lyrically. A must have among all music lovers of the post-modern era and perhaps War's strongest recording ever. Yes, even stronger than anything the band did with Eric Burdon. This is classic War.

Worth Fighting For

"Rhino punches out another fabulous reissue. WAR's All Day Music may not be the best album ever recorded, but it easily thrashes 99% of the competition. Were you to get only one WAR CD, this would be it.

Even today, WAR stands out as a unique example of musical and societal cross-pollination, freely mixing rock, soul, Latin, and jazz idioms. The amazing thing is that they pull off this neat trick so effortlessly. This is not music you listen to, you absorb it, it simply works its way into your system and puts you in a trance.

Of the CD's 7 tracks, 5 are certifiably collectible - worth revisiting over and over. That's What Love Will Do and There Must Be A Reason - while smooth, are simply not up to the incredibly high standard of the others.

One caveat. WAR rode into America's consciousness on the strength of several radio smash hits, the most enduring being Low Rider (which has a habit of showing up in a lot of movie soundtracks). Consequently, there are a handful of undesirable "Best Of War" anthologies available. These compilations frequently feature edited remixes of popular tracks, cut down to allow room for big name selections. Don't shortchange yourself, go to the source material. All Day Music, WAR's breakout album after parting company with Eric Burdon, is the perfect place to start."
