The problem is that when the content is fiery and polemical, it takes a lot of discipline to stay relaxed in delivery. Just ask Linton Kwesi Johnson, whose artistic success has always been roughly proportional to his ability to describe atrocity with smooth understatement for example, Sonny's Lettah. That's why Mutabaruka has made so few really great albums.

This album was initial fire for my post-puberty.
Smoked the stash - gambling the commodore 64 with friends - going through tribulations with school, sex, spirituality an 'de system'.
This is reggae.
Stripped down to the bone music providing space for mind, heart and stomach! (Not to say music with eggs).
Heads up, eyes open, fist clinch!!
For 'raw' get ups, stand ups, stand ups for your lefts!!!

I love lee 'scratch', i adore bob, but muta provided transformation for my way. and i'm doin' it my way.
So - maybe - you should do it yours.
Together synergized (r)evolution comes nearer.
This is not out of date.
This is to stay.

As a tending Reggae lover you should at least once in your life listen to this, even if you'll find intelligent, musical etc. disses for this release.

Clear 5* in my believe.
