Very Disappointing. Their worst yet .
on 22 September 2012
As someone who has bought and loved all the other Easy-Stars albums I was really looking forward to getting this one. Sadly it turned out to be a huge disappointment. The inspired dub style of earlier albums such as Dub Side of the Moon or Easy Stars Lonely Hearts Dub Band has, by and large, gone and been replaced by formulaic and to be honest slightly boring covers . The album doesnt actually hit a groove til the 3rd track (the girl is mine), the first two tracks are just so bland that they come across as a watered down UB40. There are possibly 3 or 4 decent tracks on here - The girl is mine, Thriller, Beat it are all good . Billie Jean starts off well then meanders on for two minutes longer than it ought to . And really thats it. A real shame- far and away the worst album the Easy Star All stars have come up with and unlikely to get played very often.
