5.0 out of 5 stars The Reward. . . April 14, 2007
By Achis
Format:Audio CD
Besides taking their own music to the next level, the arrival of Midnite on the reggae scene in the mid 1990's also marked the arrival of Virgin Island reggae on the scene as a whole. Suddenly, unknown artists who were very talented, though un/underappreciated, were thrust into the spotlight and given the attention they deserved as much as their Jamaican peers. Even to this day, nearly a decade later, slowly but surely the world is beginning to become exposed to more and more of that talent as more and more even still are nurtured and are being pushed forth at nearly record pace (artists from the VI, particularly St Croix, sometimes come forward with an album with virtually no gestation period at the highest level). Not only are the younger artists such as Pressure, Niyorah, Star Lion Family, Abja and Army now gaining a great mass of attention, but some of Midnite's more closer peers are as well. Bambu Station from St Thomas and St Croix is held in nearly high esteem as is Midnite. The band, which is regarded as almost a lesser known version of their more well known neighbors and although the musical style of Bambu Station is not EXACTLY like that of Midnite, they have carved out their own special place in the annals of VI reggae, not only through their own music but DIRECTLY helping the younger artists in the form of pushing two fine projects, The Talkin' Roots albums, vol. 1 and 2. If you are interested in learning more of VI reggae, then definitely Bambu Station is an excellent starting point. As one of the most experienced and well versed collectives currently playing that vibes, Station is to be well respected and are amongst the most popular artists where VI reggae is played.

This a great 1st album for the artist Ras Iba...VI massive! Hard hitting lyrics about the conditions of the youth at home reminds us all that we must put the children first if we are to move forward as a people.

3.0 out of 5 stars CATCH UP WITH THE CULTURE November 30, 2006
Format:Audio CD
LION'S DEN ADVERSITY: Virginia native, Black Culture, a.k.a. Troy Bonds, released this debut long player back at the beginning of 2006, and I have to admit that it's been somewhat neglected since then, mostly because I've been busy trying to keep up with this year's bumper crop of reggae releases - time now to make amends, and give this young artist some well-deserved promotion.

Produced in collaboration with the Bambu Station band and the talented Tuff Lion, and released by Mt. Nebo, LION'S DEN ADVERSITY is such a quiet, carefully considered set of songs, it tends to almost slip away before you can bend an ear around it. Rarely rising above a half-whisper, Culture's voice is cool and clear as a mountain stream, and sounds just right in combination with Bambu Station's very mellow, very rootsy backup. For starters, check the sparkling roots tonic, JAH VIEW, which opens the album on the sweetest of spring breezes, or the beautiful HAILE I SELASSIE I (also featured on the essential Mt. Nebo collection, TALKIN ROOTS II), which unwinds so slowly and serenely it seems to stretch out forever. The pulse quickens just a little for the relatively upbeat CUP A COCOA and CLEAN & SOBER, both excellent selections. I also liked the closing CALL BACK LATER, which takes a bit of a different approach, and provides a welcome change of pace. At the end of the day, this probably isn't the most exciting or innovative production I heard this year, and it's a little rough around the edges in a do-it-yourself sort of way, but nonetheless, it's certainly a promising and ocassionally inspired debut. Pick this up and give the youth a try.

Also, look out for Tuff Lion's debut solo outing, which has been hovering around the release schedules for some time now. Should be worth the wait, I reckon.
