This album has had a huge influence on my life.I woke up and realised the foolishness of raccism as prescribed by my post war (ignorant) parents and I started to understand Jamaican/British culture.I kind of personally evolved beyond new wave and still follow true roots reggae to this day.Just seen Sly & Robbie live-I feel truly blessed!
This album kind of relayed a theme of modern day suffering and poverty both in the UK and beyond reflected in the wonderful artwork which was better appreciated with a 12" cover.It really is a classic. Bob Marley listened to it in his tour bus at the time-recommendation enough for most. Buy this and then check out 'Misty In Roots Live at the Countervision' for an education in the moulding of UK roots reggae of the finest order.
PS Felt the negative vibe towards Aswad in other review was a little unfair as they were a sensational live band in their roots era.
There is a real positive vibe to this music, with classics such as Klu Klux Klan, Sound System and Prodgical Son (a Top 40 hit) providing the standout moments.
Meanwhile, fellow Brummies UB40, together with Aswad, were waiting in the wings with their crossover reggae-pop for the 'reggae-ignorant' mainstream audience. Forget this lot, this is true reggae with real spirit.
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.
