UB40 have spent the last few years doing what many bands in such an exalted position would do. Having sold 50 million albums and become global superstars, they have spread their wings and diversified.

They have collaborated with Jamaica's dancehall legends and worked with the fathers of reggae. In 2003, they even recorded Swing Low, the anthem for the England rugby team's ... Read more in Amazon's UB40 Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly underated album 20 Jun 2003
Format:Audio CD
Amongst the hardcore UB fans this probably ranks as one of their greatest albums (and the most underated), yet the album recieved little public attention and the two singles released from the album did only modestly in the charts. Don't let this put you off buying the album, it has a refreshing uplifting feel about it and some cultural lyrics in 'Guns in the ghetto' probably one of the best songs they have written. 'Always there' is another UB classic as well as 'I love it when you smile' and 'Lisa'. My fave UB album, one I never get tired of hearing. The dancehall album which followed its release features Jamaicas finest riding the riddims off this album and complements this album well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic UB40 25 Jun 2001
Format:Audio CD
After a spell of only average albums UB40 are back on track with this excellent outing. The tracks still have a slightly more 'pop' feel, but they have also recaptured the earlier dub sound that made them great in the first place. For fans of the band this is kind of a cross between 'Labour of love' & 'Present arms'. Great to see them back on the reggae saddle.
