Seun Kuti (the son of the illustrious Fela Kuti) teams up again for his second album with Africa 80, with the result being the funky, politically interested and infectiously catchy 'From Afica with Fury: Rise'. The album contains of seven songs, all of which bring in a range of instruments, from the delightful brass section to tribal drums and beyond; all fronted by Kuti's harsh, but fitting voice, for 46 minutes of political anger. The album's key theme is the injustice of Africa, from the call-to-arms against injustice of 'Rise', to the criticism of endemic corruption in 'Mr. Big Thief'. The lyrics are bold, and generally well-aimed, though there's nothing here in the political outcries and outrage which hasn't been done before in African music. And that's true of the album as a whole. There's not a bad track on 'From Africa with Fury: Rise', but there's nothing particularly innovative or oustanding amidst these jams. The beats and rhythm provided by Africa 80 are consistently good, and there are a few standout tracks, namely closer 'The Good Leaf' and 'Rise', but neither departs from the album's sound, which both musically and lyrically, has a tendency towards a repetition which can be a little irritating as often as it is hypnotic. That said, there's still little doubt 'From Africa with Fury: Rise' is an album which will disappoint listeners. There's enough meaty tunes, topical lyrics on the condition of Africa, and affecting, angered vocals here to make this a worthwhile purchase for anyone keen on world music, but a bit of a lack of variety, and a handful of tracks being repetitive and dull in places, stops it from being quite as fine a record as it could have been.

If you love(d) Fela Kuti (this guy's dad) and want more then this is a great place to spend your money.
Not only does he play with the same backing band but his voice and sax playing are very much like those of his old man.
The songs - all new yet oddly familiar - are all powerful and enveloping.
The album flies by and leaves you proud of what this man has done to preserve his father's heritage - as well as making you want to buy more of both men's releases.
