5.0 out of 5 stars The Prophets September 22, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is one of my favorite from alpha blondy. Simply because as you might have probably already guessed from the title, this album is based on religion. He goes on to talk about the role the prophets and the troubles they went through in spreading GOD's word in "ALLAH LEKA NETCHI". Then makes a parallel with us, later generations, in "CORINTHIENS", referring to a section of the bible, as to how important it is for every human being to stay in the straight path and hold on to the truth in our every day life. In closing with the religion theme, he again sings about hypocrisy, namely in "KOLOMBARIA", where he warns human beings about thinking they are cheating GOD when they are only furthering themselves into doing bad deeds.
Then he touchily browses the troubles and tribulation people go through or have gone through in their life. Firsts in line are "BLACK MEN TEARS" and "JAH MUSIC", where he portrays some the troubles black people have been through during slavery time and the discrimination and vicious cycle black people are caught into nowadays. Secondly, he goes to an even more general subject, which is the struggle every body goes against in trying to lead a good and exemplary life in today's society in "FACE TO FACE".
Finally, he returns to topics typical of the motherland, Africa. In "COUP DETAT", Alpha denounces the wrong doing of some African leaders who thirsty of power try to get it by any means necessary. And many times they do so by using military force. "BANANA" is specific to the Ivory Coast (Cote D'Ivoire) in that he tells the problems the Ivorian dairy farmer faces in trying to make a living from his work.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Prophets December 11, 1999
By A Customer

This definitely doesn't sound like one of the standard studio releases. Prophets is only for die-hard Alpha Blondy fans who may want to complete their collection. Kolombaria and Banana are good tracks, but the rest of the album is a bit quirky. I wouldn't expect a positive response if I played this album for anyone who is not a serious Alpha Blondy fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars BON PLUS NI DE TELLE FAÇON August 12, 2002
Format:Audio CD
JE SUIS D'ACCORD AVEC la COMENTARIO d'UN FAN QUI DIT QUE NON CIRCONSTANCIELLE CE COMPACT DISC POUR une PERSONNE QUI N'A PAS ÉTÉ AUDITEUR FIDÈLE de l'ALPHA BLONDY.
CETTE ALBUM ME APPORTE BEAUCOUP DE JOIE et PAIX QUAND JE L'ÉCOUTE MAIS NI DE TELLE FAÇON COMBIEN les AUTRES.
