By D. McDavitt on July 30, 2012
Format: Audio CD
Archives debut album is one of the most exciting roots reggae releases in recent memory. Synthesizing inspiration from reggae's zenith, the Archives have surpassed emulation, hewing unique and engaging contours into the roots-rock. The Archives smelt many elements from reggae's periodic table into a new sonic alloy, even fusing hints of dancehall, ska, r&b, funk and even Latin rock into the mix. This is a musically sophisticated album created by seasoned masters (who have backed Gregory Isaacs, Joseph "Culture" Hill, Eek-A-Mouse). Writing includes dramatic keys, climatic bridges, and lyrics that are simultaneously memorable and yet poetically oblique enough to inspire meditation. Styles include one-drop, rocksteady, rockers, steppers, & dancehall. The Archives have crafted luminous compositions that will find permanent rotation on your MP3 player, and your subconscious playlist. Guided by the steady hand producer Eric Hilton [Thievery Corporation], dynamic arrangements ebb and swell, live instruments resonate naturally, and production is organic and elegant with intermittent dub effects. Bottom line: I can't stop singing & humming Archives songs. Crucial album- check it out.

Excellent roots album by a newly formed group of musicians that have recorded quality sound reflecting solid 70s roots and dub. The music continues to grow on you and you will find yourself singing the songs in your head and looking forward to the next chance you get to hear the CD. Don't hesitate. If you buy one CD this year, make it this one.

Seasoned vets of the music scene in Va/DC, this is the real deal fronted by some incredible vocals, these brothers re saying something, and laying it down with true direction and focus. Try this out folks, stop sleeping and arise to conscious vibez as a part of your daily musical diet. The Archives take you there! Yeaaaaahmon! Reggae Virginia say so!
