5.0 out of 5 stars masterpiece, 13 Dec. 2008
This review is from: Tribute To The Martyrs (Audio CD)
Listening to this in the car the other day with a friend from way back when... we went to see Steel Pulse together on the 'Caught You' tour in 1980. "Listening to this now, it's even better than Handsworth Revolution" said my friend. "Babylon makes the rules" I said "and the rule is that nothing betters Handsworth Revolution!".

Well blow me - 4 repeated listens later and I've got to agree!! See back in the day the 45 was king and this baby doesn't have 45's in abundance - It has long, rootsy beautifully produced (almost at odds with the strident militant lyrics) songs that evidently take years to be fully appreciated! Absolutely love KKK, Prediction and Solidiers and all that but I've just heard them too many times - this is a whole new voyage of discovery, even if I have owned the damn LP for a quarter of a century! It will never be so neglected again.

From Unseen Guest right through to Blasphemy there isn't a dud in sight - Since buying the CD (another Amazon bargain), I now find myself singing along as I hoover the hall or wash the pots "we're gonna hunt the National Front" "George Jackson solidad brother" etc - quite preposterous really when you consider the content, but hey, just go and own this thing - it's a life changer that was cruelly ignored in it's day - shame coz the Pulse were never so vital again and made ever more commercial records (see State of Emergency, Babylon the Bandit etc) after this one in a bid to recover the massive sales and mainstream crossover of their debut. Should have stayed on this true and righteous path.
