Biography

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

3.0 out of 5 stars One trick ponies.... and this is the trick! 18 Mar 2007
Format:Audio CD
Many (me included) regard UB40 as a formulaic, bland bunch of reggae sympathisers. They should (as I did) listen to this fantastic album.

Disregard the, frankly, rubbish covers which began with the awful, poppy, music for the masses Red Red Wine and indulge in an album totally of it's time.

Bass lines to die for, beats that will make you bite and reel you in and a two fingers attitude to be applauded even now.

Where on earth did it all go wrong?

UB40 were essential once. This is why. Buy this record.

Format:Audio CD
This is one of my earliest UB40 recollections, at the tender age of 11. This album is much more "raw" than the newer albums and it's catchy raggae tunes still make an impact on me almost 19 years later.
"Don't Slow Down," and "One in Ten," are true classics and to hear "Astro," (one of the 'other' singers) on the vocals of "Don't Let It Pass You By," is ASTRONOMICAL!
"Present Arms" is a collectors item of UB40's early years and is recommended. DON'T LET IT (this album) PASS YOU BY....DON'T LET IT PASS YOU BY...!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer Music 5 Jan 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album is one of the best UB40 albums ever made and im certain most other UB40 fans will agree, wondering why? Lambs bread, Astro is in his element in this song, Dont slow down is a brilliant mix of instruments blended well and with the right choice of words for the era, back then we all felt what UB40 was singing right to the core, this album does one thing for me, it answers all of the questions that the politicians avoid answering but in a brutal way, if this album was a curry it would have to be a special ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant album 31 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
To put it as simply as I can: This is a brilliant CD! I used to have "Present Arms" on vinyl and played it often. The vinyl disappeared sometime in the 1980's but now I have a copy on CD that will last forever.

Classic UB40! What else can I say?

5.0 out of 5 stars UB40 - "Present ARMS" 10 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The song "ONE in TEN" is a MasterWork by UB40: the rhythm section of the band swing this 'REGGAE-Shuffle' in a wonderful way, and the singers cry the words of the song! Enjoy this 10 stars UB40-album! ;-) mm65

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 1 Sep 2009
Format:Audio CD
What an excellent album, just as I remember when it was first released, still sounds great, I think this was by far the best that UB40 made (but then I did play it to death).
