Product Description

Product Description

Michael Franti and Spearhead's new release on Anti-Records, All Rebel Rockers, is the sound of an artist moving further towards the source. Listening to Michael Franti & Spearhead's latest disc, All Rebel Rockers, it's easy to imagine the tracks blasting from a classic soundsystem on the streets of Trenchtown. It's an image that makes perfect sense being that Franti and company recorded the album in Kingston with the legendary producers Sly & Robbie (Peter Tosh, Jimmy Cliff, No Doubt). The result is a joyous update of classic rebel dance music. From the opening dub influences of Rude Boys Back in Town to the intoxicating groove of Soundsystem, and the international flavored soul workout of High Low featuring Zap Mama's Marie Daulne, this record is a rockin' celebration of consciousness. While Franti's work has always contained pointed social observations, the twist here is you can now dance into the night with your fist raised high.

* The CD/DVD comes with a 16 Panel booklet and a DVD featuring a "making of the album documentary" and four music videos from All Rebel Rockers.

5.0 out of 5 stars rocking reggae 26 May 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I came across this band on a compilation from "The Wire" soundtrack. Michael Franti has a soulfully deep voice and sings political rap that is melodic and rhythmic and beautiful with a cool groove and beats.
It's Reggae meets Hip Hop in a gentle style

4.0 out of 5 stars Still better than most! 19 Aug 2008
Format:Audio CD
Although the first two tracks are the highlight of this album, they aren't the only good things here. Lyrics are poingnant and moving. Hey World is a great track. And while i'm not sure it's as good as hist last studio album... it's still better than most other albums out at the moment. if you like Franti - it's a must! Be strong for me, i'lAll Rebel Rockers: +DVDl be strong for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars even old guys like it!!! 3 Dec 2008
By Tessiers2 - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Been listening to music ever since Jimmy Hendrix was alive and this guy is one of the best singer songwriters I have heard. The message in his music is very powerful! My first CD was Yell Fire, after that I bought everything he has put out - truely a very gifted artist that appeals to all ages (I'm pushing 60).

5.0 out of 5 stars Spearhead's BEST Album by far! 11 Sep 2008
By Chester Collins - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Michael Franti and Spearhead have outdone them selves with this album produced in Jamaica! Rockin fun songs full of love and anger about injustice and a message of peace that sound awesome!!!

This album is worth buying! I love almost all the songs which is rare with any album or band! I don't listen to much reggae, this is so much more than that. You can even hear even some Eminem influence in the song Future.

If you like Spearhead or Michael Franti at all, you should definitely pick this one up... you will be impressed!!!

If only radio would play it, instead of the JUnK music thats empty and lame! All Rebel Rockers is the best CD I have bought since Rage Against the Machine debuted!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for all Spearhead fans 19 Sep 2008
By zooknoone - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I can appreciate that this may not be his best recording. Personally I like "Stay Human" and "Yell Fire" and I had a hard time imagining how he was going to top or follow "Yell Fire". A lot of the same influences are on this recording - almost like it picks up where that left off. Still - there is enough great music on this to make it worthwhile - and every time I listen to it I find something new to appreciate. Michael Franti is the modern day revolutionary song writer of our time - just like the Clash were in the 80's. I think his message is beautiful and thought provoking. This is worth buying for "Nobody Right, Nobody Wrong" alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Repeat listening guaranteed 25 Mar 2009
By alphabot - Published on Amazon.com
Michael Franti has been captivatingly cerebral since his stint with the Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy. Nothing I can say about All Rebel Rockers is more important than the music on it. This is energetic enough for the dancehall, and yet it's also peaceful soul music that crosses genre boundaries that really don't exist. Franti addresses the causes and thoughts of the common man, and speaks for poor people and refugees everywhere. Taking their mark from the incredibly strong Yell Fire!, this just raises the roof. There's no filler here. It's a strong, satisfying work of art.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nobody right, nobody wrong! 9 Nov 2008
By Todd Wentworth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Another great album from Spearhead. I discovered Yell Fire! less than a year ago and it stayed in my CD player until this came out. Saw them live outdoors on a summer night right after the All Rebel Rockers release, what a fun show! Spearhead is the best music since Bob Marley for a reggae loving bald head like me. Yell Fire still seems better, but there are at least six awesome songs on this record. Nobody Right, Nobody Wrong should be a big hit. It reminds me of Redemption Song, a song to sing along to with friends around a campfire on the beach.
