5.0 out of 5 stars THE Best UB-40 Album Ever! June 8, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I first discovered UB-40 in 1981 well before they reached their fame. This album is by far their best effort ever, done before they became "educated" in music and started all of their cover versions of other peoples songs. I remember introducing the music of UB-40 to many, many people, and to this day, this album ranks among the top 10 of all time for all of us that came from the early 80's cutting edge generation of music!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing CD! September 27, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Ive listened to the music on this CD since it was on vinyl and it's one of my favorite recordings of all time. THIS IS VINTAGE UB40 before they were a huge success and I've heard it was recorded using only 8 tracks which is amazing! There's an incredible magic here. Check it out!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic UB40 Album January 14, 2000
By Graham
Format:Audio CD
Present Arms is probably the definitive UB40 album, released at a time before they were so commercial and popular. Tracks such as Sardonicus, Don't Let it Pass You By and Lambs Bread are pure class. A must for any album collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars creative reggae May 23, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was one of several truly excellent early albums by UB40, long before they struck gold with the "Labour of Love" covers albums. Back when this album was first released, in 1981, UB40 were making some very inspired and creative reggae music with a few dub touches in many of their songs. The grooves were deep and the songs were long. Once again, this sound is miles away from the more pop-like feel of "Labour of Love," but addictive on a whole different level. I'm tempted to give this one 5 stars, but I still prefer their amazing debut album, "Signing Off" to this one. That said, there is hardly any real drop-off in quality, but I prefer the songs on the first album a bit more. "Present Arms" is a most pleasing album, but my version of this CD has only a slim insert, lacking any booklet or added liner notes. An album as fine as this one deserves a bit more recognition and better packaging from a reissue.
