Rediculously delicious blend of hard rock and reggae. From beginning to end the album is a thrill. It's a unique sound so it won't get old quick. I have heard the single "nobody" on the radio only twice, in two different cities, so I imagine that not a lot of people are hip to this group. Help spread this by word of mouth becuase anyone you play it for is sure to fall in love with it. So long as they share the same musical taste of course.

SKINDRED is without a doubt one of the most unique bands to bless the scene with it's presence in a long time. With Howard Benson (P.O.D.) producing and Rick Will (Incubus) mixing, their debut has the arsenal for warranted success. They have put together two transparently contrasting styles of music and developed a signature style that they can openly admit they originated. They have copied no one and didn't "borrow" concepts from any other band. Instead, they took the risk and mixed reggae (or "dreadhead" if you will) with metal and out came a stunning record that will inevitably spawn a score of bands trying to emulate this exceptional sound. It is as aggressive as the latin metal bands like ILL NINO and SOULFLY but with the soul of reggae and the bounce of BOB MARELY. Reggae commonly has a sub conscious pulse that will provoke anyone to move along in time with the catchy beats and yet, SKINDRED used that mold as the foundation for insane metal overtones. This record will be an important one for 2004 and will be always remembered for destroying musical boundaries that were at one time etched in stone. SKINDRED can only get better from this point on. They have set a difficult tone for others seeking to capitalize on this brand new style of music. Their BABYLON debut is hopefully just the beginning of a long and appreciated career as a band who genuinely did something different. If you aren't at the very least able to appreciate the atmosphere of reggae then you will lose out on the incarnation of music that transcends any genre. In essence, if you love music with a good beat and healthy aggression but isn't overtly commercial, SKINDRED'S debut is destined to be a part of your life.

Skindred is a great hybrid of raggae, hardcore, dance hall ,pop, and metal to make a great sound that is rarely heard in music today. It's just a shame that most of the music industry just doesn't follow suit. At least thease guys try to march foward to a new insted of trying to regurgitate an old sound.

Don't expect every song to be heavy. I listened to the track Nobody and it was heavy and great, but I only found like 5 other tracks that were like it. Don't go buy this because this because they say they sound like Korn because they don't. No curses or heavy guitar. The vocals are one thing that made this cd great. The vocals are awesome on most tracks. I didn't like the 3 interludes and the intro because it made you feel like it was a rap album. I don't like rap at all.

I take this group as being a mixture of the bands Grade 8 and Sublime. They kind of mix all kinds of music(heavy, rock, ragga) into one cd which was kind of cool.

Overall this cd is well worth 11 dollars because it is something new and it will fit anyones taste of music.

In a world full of nu-metal bands that all sound and look the same, and base their success off of music videos, it's refreshing to see Skindred emerge into the rock scene. Though they're not big in the U.S., and probably never will be with their current label, they are still one of today's most creative bands, blending elements of hardcore, punk, trip-hop, and, wait for it...reggae! Frontman Benji's vocals add a funky Jamaican/Carribean twist to the music, and his lyrics are inetersting as well, especially when he uses his native dialects. In a way, Skindred is almost like Pantera meets Bob Marley, with a stronger atmosphere to their music.
"Set It Off" gives the album a nice start, offering a catchy, groovy beat with the strangest lyrics ever. Actually, I'll be honest, any track off this album will get you dancing, it's the nature behind their music. "Nobody" slows things down a bit, but is probably one of my favorites. The title track is awesome, along with "Selector", both contributing to the album's flow. My two favorites, however, are "Pressure" and "Falling Down" because they have the most clever melodies and the catchiest rhythms. Honestly, there isn't one weak song on here (though I don't listen to "The Fear" much, way too hiphop for my tastes.
Basically, if you like heavy metal, and are sick of boring bands like Hatebreed and Mudvayne, Skindred is sure to please.
