Too Long In Slavery ~ Culture

4.0 out of 5 stars Cultural Roots, 8 Sep 2012
Culture are roots. They take their music seriously and they produce quality. This is the thinking person's reggae, exemplified in the Rasta hymn 'Holy Mount Zion' - zaps me right in the spine and my hair stands on end. Not a pretty sight, but fortunately I don't appear on the cover.
They do. They look the business.
Haile I Hymn (Chapter One) ~ I Jah Man
4 of 5 people found the following review helpful
I JahMan isn't just a reggae singer and his music isn't just reggae....it's religion. If you've read any of my other reviews, you'll know how much I enthuse about good music.But this is beyond the norm. This is an invitation to accept the hand of Jah. If you are suffering, you will take great inspiration from the load that you are carrying. I'm not joking. I JahMan will leave you in tears of happiness for the life that Jah has given you.
If you are looking for RASTAFARI,not reggae, look no further.
Amazon allow me to give this album a maximum of 5 stars, but that's like trying to compare Heaven with my living room.
Handsworth Revolution ~ Steel Pulse
Handsworth Revolution ~ Steel Pulse

'Handsworth Revolution' is beautiful music...and it's hard...and it's heavy. It's British Blacks peed off with oppression.Steel Pulse were the hardest-hitting, most socially-relevant, musically-profound reggae band to come out of Britain and do anything that Jamaica could do, putting it into a UK context.
I am Rocking Against Racism, there's someone selling cans of Red Stripe and the air is florally fragrant.
If that sounds a little over-the-top/ pretentious, let me say that this is supremely beautiful reggae music.
And how about this for pretentious......
I would like to think that, one day, the title track is recognised as classical music.
