5.0 out of 5 stars Make a Move - It's a Groove!, 15 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Antibalas (Audio CD)
Reunited with former band member and producer Gabriel Roth,
Antibalas first album on Daptone is a brilliant one and the
purest afrobeat package they have dropped. The latin funk
imprint is not as significant and the rhythm section is even
tighter than before. And that's tight! It's so tight they need
to hire The Incredible Hulk to loosen the screw.

"Dirty Money" and "Him Belly No Go Sweet" are both great songs,
but the closing song "Sare Kon Kon" is the real standout.
A 8 minute superphat celebration of the groove, with great
solos over an amazing rhythm section. FAAAAANTASTIC!

As recommended as a cold beer in the shade, after a hard days
work polishing sand in the dunes at Death Valley. Goddamnit!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Afro sounds with a hint of jazz, 27 Nov 2012

This review is from: Antibalas (Audio CD)
Straight out of the Fela Kuti school, but with a little more jazz included. A very tight band with a rich driving sound.

4.0 out of 5 stars AFROBEAT VIA USA, 26 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Antibalas (Audio CD)
This album is on Dap tone records which usually deals in soul music with artists such as Sharon Jones and Charles Bradley. Although this album uses some of the personnel from the soul records this albums soul is not American but African it sound is that of Afrobeat a sound like that of Femi and Seun Kuti as well as their father Fela, it is a funky horn driven sound made for dancing. The Kuti's music in this style has a political edge, but this album does not have that political aspect so is just great fun. I enjoyed the album and it doesn't overstay it's welcome as the sound can become monotonous. So to sum up this album is good time music played with passion and verve.

The pressing and packaging are great quality and the free Mp3 download is useful too.
The music is great, but you already know that otherwise you wouldn't be searching for Antibalas !

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Antibalas (MP3 Download)
If you like Afro-influenced funk with a smattering of jazz this album is for you. Every track has a hot cookin', sweatin' dance groove to liven up any party. If this music don't turn you on, you 'aint got no switches!
