Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

At some indeterminate point in their now 25 year long history and with serenely inconspicuous efficiency, Birmingham's UB40 rose to a level of peerlessness as the first-family of British reggae. While they've absolutely nothing left to prove--save to those bored by their longevity--Who You Fighting For finds UB40 shouting more loudly than usual; the likelihood being - even at this autumnal stage of the band's career--that less partisan ears may be pricked by such refreshing spices as the Bhangra chorus of "Reasons" or even by more traditional summer reggae sweeteners as "Gotta Tell Someone" or the dark, philanderer-reformed ruminations of "One Woman Man". But the real reason why UB40 are raising their voices is Iraq, possibly the most upset they've been about anything since Maggie's iron grip on the keys of Number 10. While having the brass to call one tune "War Poem" doesn't bode well, UB40 reach for the shrewd invective on "Sins Of A Father", a well-written censure of Christian neo-Conservatism and oil lust. Sensibly, the lean skin-and-bone production and avoidance of MOR blandishments make UB40 seem meaner and younger than they have done in years. --Kevin Maidment

5.0 out of 5 stars Best in years! January 24, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I purchased this as an import from the UK when it was released summer '05. Without doubt, it is the best work they've put forth in years!

To make it better, a 2006 North American tour kicks off in March!!

Buy the album... then see them live! What a "Good Situation" indeed. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Best album yet!! July 5, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I've been a fan of UB40 for quite some time now... and I can honestly say that this album is their best one yet!! I can't wait for some of their tracks to make airplay in the US - it's bound to be a smash hit! They're all excellent, original tunes - and brings UB back to their roots. Well done!!

This is a MUST HAVE for your collection!

It's hard to believe UB40 has been around nearly 30 years and still sound so fine. They have written several fantastic songs here, and covered a few other great ones. This is get-up-and-dance reggae, sing-along reggae, reggae of love, protest, and philosophy; beautiful stuff. Every song has good lyrics (some great) and every song sounds like a hit.

This is probably their greatest album ever, and I have them all.

Don't miss it.

5.0 out of 5 stars UB40 - They are amazing!! August 23, 2005
Format:Audio CD
UB40 just keeps getting better and better. This CD is amazing!!

The opening track - "Who You Fighting For?" - sends out the question many of us would like an answer for. In a day and age where we are all supposed to be better educated and be able to reason on our differences - UB40 wants to know why are we at war? Who will actually benefit?... The guys give us a few songs that will make you think and be more aware. Ali Campbell's voice stills sounds as sweet as ever. Another outstanding cut on the disk is "Gotta Tell Someone". It's just too bad they don't release their stuff over here anymore and we don't justify any live shows. Have UB40 forgotten about their American fans... sure seems like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars this album should be doing better September 25, 2005
By R.R.
Format:Audio CD
Reggae originated as a form of peaceful protest and to spread political awareness. But the best UB40 song on this album is not the title track or any of the "statement" songs. My favorite track on this album is "Things You Say You Love". It deserves to be as big a hit as UB40's version of "I Just Cant Help Falling In Love With You". "Kiss and Say Goodbye" is outstanding too. Both are beautiful love songs. "Reasons" is a fun mid-tempo track with a neat Punjabi chorus that I think means "Without You There is No Comfort My Love". "One Woman Man" has seductive sax and vocals - it sounds almost sexy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Delivers what is expected from the group February 9, 2006
Format:Audio CD
The Good

We all know that UB40 is a predominately reggae band, but there is a lot of pop-rock appeal to there music. The group comes out swinging on the opening track "Who You Fighting For," as they describe how big business and the government profits from the little guy putting his life on the line. "After Tonight" (Matumbi) is a seductive track full of brass and percussion. Despite its silly title, "Bling Bling" is quite catchy and refreshing. It's not all about political outcry for UB40, they engage in a spiritual discussion of the first law makers and first rules of the land on "Sins of the Fathers."

"Good Situation" (Gene Chandler) focuses on determination in the eyes of infatuation. UB40 count off one by one the "Reasons" why they're attracted to someone special. The tempo in this one is faster that usual for the group. "I'll Be on My Way" is a remake of a McCartney/Lennon collaboration. It's not a song a recognize, but it's enjoyable just the same. The group's cover of The Jamaicans' "Things You Say You Love" has a nice bounce to it.

The Bad

The covers chosen for this album are quite obscure, for me at least.

The Verdict

UB40 have a distinct sound of there own, and nothing has changed on Who You Fighting For. Though I feel that this release caters more to longtime fans, it still delivers what is expected from the group.

5.0 out of 5 stars better than ever May 7, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Kudo's to UB40 for another stellar album. They have always kept reggae old school while still sounding fresh and vibrant. Beautiful rhythmic melodies and great lyrics. Even the classic reggae tracks like "good situation" aka Groovy situation sound updated but still retain old reggae charm.Ali campbell never sounded better. I look forward to more from this great group.

P.S UB40 was the number for the unemployment form in England. Which is where most the group met. Buy it and enjoy.

Personal favorite tracks include Track 2 After tonight
Track 6 sins of the father
Track 11 I'll be on my way

And beautiful Track 13
"Things you say you love"
