5.0 out of 5 stars Any reggae collection is crippled without Sinsemilla 19 Oct 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The dynamic trio are at it again with this one. Sinsemilla captures Rose, Simpson and Jones in a meditative but poignant stance. Musically supported by some of the best musicians in the industry, Black Uhuru performs at their best with such a profound focus. Rose's prophetic lyrics are nutured by the backing vocals of Simpson and Puma. Sinsemilla is a song many artists wish they could do but for some reason or another are too afraid to entertain this subject. Rose is just direct and captivating, providing a pathway for Simpson and Jones to follow while incorporating their unique artistic talents. The Whole World is Africa is a tune that will have its greatest impact in future years once people stop to listen and realize what UHURU is all about. Again, uncompromising lyrics drenched with trend-setting dubs makes this cd a must for any fan of conscious rasta roots...Terrell.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Underestimated Prevails 19 Feb 2008
By Dartanyan Winston - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Although this album never gets paid as much homage as Red, don't think for a second that makes this album a dud. I believe this is the best album Black Uhuru made while signed with Island Records. Yes, Red I'm calling you out and saying Sinsemilla has got you beat. I can't recall a day without me listening to this classical masterpiece. The first two songs (Happiness and World Is Africa) are quite different being that Michale Rose is singing solo, no Puma, no Duckie, just Michale. We all know the smash hits Happiness, World Is Africa, Sinsemilla, & Endurance, but there's much more to hear. For instance Push Push & No Loafing (Sit And Wonder), I truly feel these songs could've made it on some compilation albums. There's A Fire and Vampire are also classics, so you can really pop the CD in and just let it play. DON'T STALL ANY LONGER AND BUY THIS ALBUM! If you have Red and didn't even bother to listen to Sinsemilla's samples, shame on you! This album is 10 times better than Red and the two bonus track Sinsemilla (Dicsco Mix) & Guess Who's Coming To Dinner (Disco Mix), is the the sprinkles on the cake. The album is already the cake and icing, so who wants sprinkles???

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the OTHER very best... 13 Dec 2005
By Madrok - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
...reggae albums of all time. Black Uhuru sound darker, more ghostly on this album. Bass is a little more up-front in the mix. The songs are almost as good as "Red". Not quite as quick or hyped up as that album though. Extra tracks are 2 dub versions.

5.0 out of 5 stars a classic 19 Sep 2000
By Sean M. Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
the third Black Uhuru lineup of Simpson/Rose/Jones presented the world with "Sinsemilla" in 1980, and it became an instant classic.
Combining Rose's amazing lead vocals with the beautiful harmonies of Simpson and Jones, and adding to it the incredibly funky drums and bass of the legendary Sly and Robbie, the album is a tight tour de funk.
With standout tracks like "World Is Africa," "Happiness," "Endurance," and the title track, there is no way you can listen to this album and not be entranced by it.
While "Red" is in many ways their best effort, "Sinsemilla" is no slouch at all. Both lps should be in any reputable reggae collection, so add them to yours.

4.0 out of 5 stars fill 'er up! 28 Oct 2008
By Nico - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album should be read as a sign of things to come. Maybe even a warning. Black Uhuru were no longer content being just any old "roots" rockers. They were about to become sonic explorers.
