This album is worth buying! I love almost all the songs which is rare with any album or band! I don't listen to much reggae, this is so much more than that. You can even hear even some Eminem influence in the song Future.
If you like Spearhead or Michael Franti at all, you should definitely pick this one up... you will be impressed!!!
If only radio would play it, instead of the JUnK music thats empty and lame! All Rebel Rockers is the best CD I have bought since Rage Against the Machine debuted!
Cherine Anderson is featured on several tracks. In some cases her harmonies complement Franti's voice really well, while on other tracks she just talks in the background. I don't care for that sort of stuff, but I can see how others might find it appealing. She does seem to be enjoying herself, and that adds to the atmosphere. Overall this is a great collection of material and a must-have for all Franti fans.
After the heroes disbanded it was really hard for me to give spearhead much of chance. Home sorely disappointed me but I was partial to more aggressive music at the time. It just seemed to friendly music wise and a little dumbed down to his previous project. Needless to say i stopped following them until recently when i decided to check them out because a friend of mine was going to see them. I listened to most of yell fire on the bands website(check it out... it's very cool) and was very impressed. It seemed to be more of a balanced marriage of the pop and political sound he was starting to go in with spearhead. I got the album and think it's probably his best album period...
That being said it's hard to follow that up. The intensity and urgency on yell fire was drawn largely from his experience in the middle east which he shot a great documentary "I know I'm not alone". This was a life changing experience which was very intense. The new album seems to take a decided turn towards a pop/party political sound. I had a hard time with that at first but the album has grown on me with repeated listens.Read more ›

This and Yell Fire are in a class by themselves. Both incredible albums. This from a 46 year old white guy - It's never too late to get a clue.Published 5 months ago by Mike
Bought this cd for 1 song. If I knew how to download songs & put them on a mp3 player that would be super! However, I don't know how to do that. Hopefully, one day I will learn. Read morePublished 6 months ago by H. Rodriguez
