Saw these guys at the album launch at Perranporth, absolutely awesome gig, amazing musicians and amazing atmosphere and deserve to be massive, have not stopped listening to this cd since. Full of cleverly written catchy tunes, falls into the sort of reggae, funky ska bracket with a really impressive rapper on top, Brilliant!!!! buy this album and go see them!!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Number 1 Ska, 12 July 2013

This review is from: The Specials (Audio CD)
SERIOUSLY there is only 28 reveiws for this album, that is outrageous! one complete cretin gave it 1 star ( what a complete pratt) This is by far the most generation defining album, it CHANGED everything after this point, even now, every time I listen to this cd I can feel the raw energy and it instantly takes me back to 1978, this cd was life changing, if you are reading this, WHY?? You should have already bought it and have been through about 3 or 4 cd's, vinyls and cassettes already

If you are reading this then thank god. You have reached a point in your life that will always be after you heard this cd and then listened to, and then tried to watch live the almighty phenomena that is Jaya The Cat, by far the most amazing, talented band I have ever listen to, this album is a gift from the gods of Ska, thanks MARK

5.0 out of 5 stars blinding ska, 27 Mar 2011
Just received this album through the "Do the Dog" label Skazine, cant stop playing it. It is full of original, superb, cleverly written ska. These boys will go far. I would throughly recommend this album if you are into 2tone with a modern vibe.Stand out tracks for me would be La La world, with it's Ghost town vibe, Right Boy, Stay on your Feet (try your best to stay on your feet, don't you know there are sick people all around they will try and put out your passion)classic and Alright.
This album is smack on.

This cd is an absolute belter, I have had this album for a least a year and am still constantly listening to it. This is classic ska in the Selecter, Specials mode. If you are looking for quality ska buy this. I would throughly recommend this with many stand out tracks, comin out to get you is my favourite, simply outstanding! the sax instrumental is something of awe. Go buy now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Awesome a reveiw from Beardy, 14 Mar 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pama Outernational (Audio CD)
I have been a massive ska lover for 30 years now and this album is absolutley superb, everysong is simply breathtaking. Stand out tracks for me are Are we saved yet?, I still love you more and Still I wait. If mainstream radio played any of these songs I guarantee they would reach high in the charts. The base lines are monster (Sir Horace Gentleman) and the Ska riffs fantastic (Lynval) along with some fantastic brass solo's. I would thouroghly recommmend this album and whilst you are there buy The Trojan Sessions aswell.
Congrats to Sean and Finny on a ska masterpiece.
