King Django's stuff is notoriously difficult to get in this country - the one item that seems readily available online is this one, which is usefull because it's as good as anything he has done. How he isn't more popular (or even just known) to the ska buying British public is beyond me.

He favours a very traditional, rootsy, rocksteady flavour of Ska - and it's VERY infectious. You need to give a good couple of listens, then you'll really love it.

Also check out King Django meets the Scrutalists, and ANY of the Stubborn Allstars CDs - but especially look for NYC Ska Sensation (the one with the orange cover and a band pic on the front). Pure quality ska.

On this CD, Django performed all of the vocals and keyboards and trombone. Its probably a bit more jumpy than what he usually does.

Its an excellent entry point to King Django, and an equally excellent addition if you're already familiar.

King Django is most known for his work in the ska bands Skinnerbox and The Stubborn Allstars. His solo project however is only slightly ska. In this record he mixes punk,ska,ragga,blues,hip-hop,drum'n'base,rock and roll and everything else under the sun. He is really trying to do everything at once. This make it quite a difficult record to get into. He does some things better than others. The stand out tracks are Reason,Never Try and Precipice. Well written ska type rock songs. But then there are songs like chase pum pum and hustle the mac. These seem very macho and cheesy to me. I can't stand to listen to them. I can't say this is a good or bad record because it is too orginal to say. Overall I think this record is entertaining and if you want to listen to a man with a strange voice sing about love, hate and Open Season here he is. It is a shame he didn't play his trombone though, That what he does best.

The king returns 25 April 2001
By "rreichle" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Before hearing "Reason," I would have said that King Django had already done it all. He had already experimented with ska, reggae, dub and dancehall with his bands Skinnerbox, the Stubborn All-Stars and the Version City Rockers, and "Roots and Culture," his first solo album, surprisingly threw traditional Jewish music into the mix. But even with all these styles under his belt, he covers even more new musical territory with "Reason." Drum 'n' bass, jungle, rap, dancehall and classic rock are all thrown together in an amazing display of Django's versatility. Fast tracks like "Reason," "LKO" and "Kick It Out" combine Django's formidable toasting skills with lively rock-reggae backing music. "Never Try" and "I Got A Ride" are traditional reggae songs, although with a totally different feel than any Version City-produced songs. "Chase Pum Pum" and "Hustle the Mac" are sort of hip-hop/jungle songs. And the album even has "Next Season," another installment in the years-old "Open Season-... is closed-Hepcat Season-No Reason for Season-Cooking Season" ska DJ battle.
With the exception of the lively first four tracks, it's a dark album, and different from anything you've ever heard. Whatever your expectations, it's definitely worth the buy.

Lyrical Slap in your Face 26 Aug. 2002
By VPerry_co_dutchess - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Cannot get this out of my CD changer for 4 months now. Ska-rock-dancehall. Plus. Eclectic the way I like it - genuine, not a gratuituous stew of styles.
Mostly I like the faster tracks: "Kick it Out" is my favorite. Also, "Reason" & "LKO" (blistering). Mostly I like the songs with guitar textures.
"Never Try" is a beautiful ballad. "I Got a Ride" has the blues roots storyline of Dylan's great Cold Irons Bound.
King is confident & charming & smart with almost no preaching. I know of nothing like it.
Another great release. 25 July 2003
By Paul Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This, king Djangos second release is just a little bit below the first realease however is still brilliant, Reason seems to concentrate on the rock reaggae side of the spectrum and precipice is one of his best tracks along with reason thats pretty good aswell but more heavy duty reggae so if your looking for some pre-eminant reggae then pick up any of king djangos releases then if you dont own any Bob Marley already then go get legend or at least i would recommened you do that. King Djangos music is more experimental on the previous more cultural album but this could be seen as a better prelude than roots would so i recommened this highly along with anything else to date by king Django.
Excellent album 28 Oct. 2002
By Brett Cohen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a great album, and it has grown on me over time. KD displays a whole palette of sounds and tempos, from ska, to guitar-laced harder stuff, to reggae. My favorite song is a crooner called "I got a ride". Worth the price for that song alone. Looking forward to the next album.
