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

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! 29 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
While UB40 are known by many for their cover versions of famous songs, in my opinion they are best when playing their own material, and every song on this CD is one of their own.

The production, arrangement and musicianship is impeccable, but most impressive of all are the melodies: it's hooks within hooks, so good you'll be singing them for weeks.

The hits "Sing Our Own Song" and "Rat In Mi Kitchen" speak for themselves, but there is a greater variety of music on this CD than these would suggest. Some darker themes and deeper grooves are evident, and in their own way the other songs on the album are the equals of the hits.

If in doubt, buy it!

I bought this album originally back in 1986 and was the first UB40 album I bought. It turned me into fan.So many good songs on it including the singles Sing our own song, Watchdogs, All I want to do and the title track Rat in mi kitchen. My personal faves are Tell it like it is and You could meet somebody. I couldn't recommend this cd highly enough, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars extended versions, but not remastered! 6 Aug 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is not remastered! But the numbers "Rat in mi kitchen" and "sing our own song" is super good and extended versions compared to the numbers of "The best of UB40 Vol 1 & 2". It would be better if this album from 1986, remastered, but it sounds good anyway.
