Yes I agree with ralphdogmusiclover's review above, don't let the dodgy recordings this band did in the 80's put you off. This is a superb reggae album. Often dismissed by reggae snobs as middle class reggae due to the privileged background of the band. This early Third World album is a gem. Slick production, sing along lyrics, and the whole album flows like a well thought out sound scape with excellent musician-man-ship. Its almost like a piece of classical music in the way it all flows and connects together. Whilst most reggae albums are a collection of the singles released by an artist this is a full concept album. One of my favourite albums, it almost leans towards pop reggae in production quality, think more Island records Wailer's albums than say the rough sounds of early Lee Perry albums.
Would suit someone new to reggae who's just finished listening to Bob Marley's Ledged album .... But is also so much more
