Editorial Reviews

Rebelution first united in Santa Barbara, California, built from a wide array of musical backgrounds. With Reggae as the focus, the group set out to create a fresh and vibrant sound which they dub California Reggae. The band released their highly anticipated full-length album in June of 2007 and just weeks after its release, "Courage to Grow" became one of the most downloaded Reggae albums on iTunes. By the end of the year, it had been awarded the iTunes Editors Choice: Best Reggae Album 2007. "Apparently, California Reggae is hot. Stemming from a foundation of local support, Rebelution soared into iTunes Reggae Top 10 (album downloads), amongst some lofty company. Lofty like Bob, Stephen, and Damian Marley." -- Santa Barbara News-Press

I have always been a fan of Reggae sounds and bands like Sublime and Pepper that add rock influence as well. I have used the Amazon sample system to find new bands and Rebelution was at the top of my list of findings! Great, clean, feel good sound and best of all this is one of those classic CD's that you can play all the way through without skipping any tracks. I have a feeling this will be my "go to album" for this next summer. Sample this, i'm sure you will love it too.

Awesome stuff - this has not been marketed properly. These guys are relatively unknown and they are absolutely tremendous musicians. If you like great grooves and a high recording quality then get this. No need to be a reggae fan to enjoy this, One of the rare albums where EVERY track is just great. I am so happy to find an album where every track is so good. I like good drumming - big band, funk, jazz, rock and some pop - you will enjoy this guarenteed. This is refreshing stuff - think Santana, Red Hot Chilli Peppers in reggae mode....

One Love!!!
Wow! That's about all there is to say about Rebelution. I really don't have anything more to say that hasn't already been covered. It's nice to see people who feel the same about this CD, and the fact that the entire thing is like that darn song you have stuck in your head that you just cant shake...but this one you don't want to leave...amazing. If your a fan of bands ranging from Kotttonmouth Kings, Daddy X, sublime, Expendables, Marley, Pepper, or Jimmies Chicken Shack ect. check em out. This is one of those cd's that I support 100% from the first song to the last itty bitty drop of pure peaceful ecstacy.

I happen to stumble listening to Rebelution and the first song I heard from them is "On My Mind". Being a reggae fan, of course I fell in love with the song. I love their style and decided to get the album and man oh man, Courage to Grown is a instant classic!
Great sound, vibe, vocals, everything and they put out positive message that we can relate to.
Very uplifting!.
When you're down, pop in this album in and it will put that frown upside down! (corny? HAHAHA)

Rebelution is one of those bands that just hits you. They have a ton of great songs. They write great music. Positive lyrics that can help you get through tough times. These guys are great. I bought all of their albums. I will be listening to them for a long time. If any of the band members read this, thank you for writing such great music and please keep it up! Also, please come to the New England area soon!

I have been listening to this album for several months now and it still has not gotten old. All songs are good enough to listen to the album straight through. My favorites are Feeling Alright, Safe and Sound (and the dub), and Courage to Grow. Good bass lines, accoustic intro's, nice skank, and great lyrics to match. Positive vibes! Looking forward to a new release.

These guys are amazing. I discovered them through a friend last summer and I've been listening to them ever since. Their songs never get old and if I have a stressful day, I always enjoy relaxing to their album.

I've been playing their cd in my car all summer and is great driving music too. All their songs are top-quality and I wish they were marketed more.
