The album has a very varied sound, and rhythms tend to be all over the place. "Tear It Down" might be the most powerful reggae tune of the entire decade so far, and was an excellent first introduction to the band. "Your Song" brings along the familiar and mighty Jr. Gong to help out, and that killer bass line melts my soul like butter. "Easier" has a wonderful roots feel to it, and "Shadow" might be the second best tune on the album with its wonderful melodies and bass-line.
Some tracks really are misses unfortunately. "I Believe" is just silly, "Once Upon A Time" has subjects a bit too off the mark for Reggae (You're a popular reggae singer, no one is surprised an ex might be infatuated with you, and I don't think anyone wants to hear a song about it either). "Lucid Dreams" is another track that felt like it was brutally injected by a white frat boy into what should be a stronger roots album. In other words, there are a few tracks here which keep the album from being a 5, and it's when they try to cater to things that stray too far from the reggae foundation and "whiten" things up. (And please accept my apologies for any racial overtones - I have to critically compare this to artists like Peter Tosh and Black Uhuru folks)
Overall a great, attractive album from a rising set of stars in the genre. I would definitely see them live again, and quite frankly I'm up for the ride of checking out their other albums and seeing what comes in the future.

Absolutely love this album. The back half of the songs aren't quite as good to me personally, but tracks 1-6 easily make it a 5-star album.Published 14 days ago by Eric M
The product is fine. I really like the Amazon provides an instant download of the music. I'm partial to some of SOJA's earlier albums but this one did not disappoint.Published 1 month ago by Mathew James
