5.0 out of 5 stars Steel Pulse 12 Oct 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
STEEL PULSE may have explored various styles of music since they started out in 1975, but when it comes to the message, the UK's Grammy - Winning reggae band has remained close to their roots.
The Group have continued their commitment to fighting injustice, educating the masses, and promoting positive messages through spiritually uplifting music.
"We just can't ignore the politics, because every life and soul that's born on this earth is a political manoeuvre for someone, at some stage", Hinds explains.
The band's international success has resulted in a Grammy award for their Babylon The Bandit album, and nominations for Earth Crisis, Victims, Rastafari Centennial and Rage & Fury.
True Democracy is a re issue of the 1982 album. Originally issued on the prestigious Electra Label. True Democracy is one of the bands classic albums and has not been available in the UK for some time. This re issue includes a reprint of the full lyrics and faithful reproduction of the original artwork.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great quality & rapid despatch 15 Jan 2011
Format:Audio CD
I absolutely love this album and for nostalgic reasons I wanted to own it on CD rather than buy an MP3 download. It arrived really quickly despite all the Christmas post problems in London and is of excellent quality. I would highly recommend this seller.

By Andre Lawrence TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
"In your hands lie your destination/
The book of true life, you hold the key/
Mystical powers to you unfold/
Seek ye the half that has never been told...."
-- Chant A Psalm

The first two albums on this list share the distinction of genre-defying, crossover success and as such I awarded them the top spots as an honorarium. However, the next five albums can easily be considered the "greatest reggae album" of all time on artistic merits alone.

For the music industry, 1982 signaled a change for the usual. I remember it well as that September was the beginning of my senior year at Uniondale High School (NY). It was also a time where we saw a new group of rap artist emerge as groups like Grandmaster Flash, Sugarhill Gang, Kurtis Blow, Spoonie Gee and The Cold Crush Bros., were not only competing against each other but also the expectation that they could produce more than just the occasional hit singles. Back in the day, there were any "budgets" to talk about. It was all about ingenuity and love of the art. "Do you believe you have what it takes?" Right around the corner, Run DMC and LL Cool J (both from Queens) were making a lot noise with their sound. Things were about to get interesting!

Up in the Northwest, Prince, the musical prodigy, had firmly established himself as a solo musician and created a very competent (and complicit) backing band. The Time, the sophistical counterpart to his royal badness, would themselves experience a change of leaders as Alexander O'Neal was replaced by Morris Day.

Back in the Northeast, Rick James was...was Cold Blooded! He was just finishing the 3 of three spectacular albums following Street Songs and Throwin' Down.
