I have read some positive and poor reviews of the album. I have been a UB fan since 1980 but decided against buying this cd with Ali gone, and have not seen them live since either. However it is in my cd player and is actually very good. The 1st thing you will notice with the band is that they are playing together as a great band that they always were, but it all sounds real and live. Gone is the electronic synthetic bass and other drum machine sounds of albums since around Promises and Lies, and back is Jim Brown and Earl playing together as a unit(Sly and Robbie!!) The new keyboard player has added a different element to the sound more Ska/roots feel. Duncan is not Ali, and my wife commented that he does not have the edge that makes Ali's voice so distintive. However, Duncan has a sweet tone and a very subtle delivery that really grows on you. I have been converted, the best UB album for a long while and I may even look out for the next shows. Well done boys keep them coming, and Robin may even go back to playin some great solos not seen since Signing Off/P Arms days!
