Product Description

Bob Marley meets Steel Pulse. Roots-Rock-Rock reggae masterpiece from Fourth Dimension and producer Karl Pitterson, the man behind the controls on Bob Marley & The Wailers Exodus Album and producer of Steel Pulse's Handsworth Revolution, Tribute To The Martyrs & True Democracy,


Like renowned UK act Steel Pulse, Fourth Dimension features a likeable, buoyant live-band sound with catchy hooks and layered harmonies. Also like Steel Pulse, there's a pop edge to Invazion, with bubbly melodies and electric guitar riffs, making it accessible without becoming saccharine sweet. Fourth Dimension never really falls into the trap of becoming a Steel Pulse clone, however. They establish their own sound with dancehall-flavored tracks like "Showdown" and "Everything Dun" and Spanish-language tunes "Muertos en Vida" and "Levanta," which fans of Gondwana should enjoy. All in all, there's plenty to like about Invazion for both diehard reggae fans and newbies. Standouts include the laid-back title track, the righteous "Highest Praise," and the luscious ganja anthem "Yes."

There's no denying that Fourth Dimension is one of South Florida's hardest-working reggae bands. The group gigs constantly at least four or five nights out of the week playing all three counties in South Florida (none of that Miami-only bullsh*t), and they're actually worth a damn when they plug in their instruments. After eight years of hard work, the band members' dedication to their craft is overwhelmingly apparent on their freshly released new album, Invazion. It's a solid 15-track disc that shows a lot of musical growth and also features the band's impressive new drummer, Joe "Grind" Fagan, keeping the rocksteady groove as strong as ever. One of the catchiest tunes on the album is "Showdown," a reggae spaghetti Western of a jam with a nod to John Wayne and a message urging youth to put down their guns. Another favorite is the Steel Pulse-styled "What a Situation," with its ringing church bells, thick basslines, and two-part harmonies that you can't help but fall in love with after a few listens. Sonically, the album sounds more professional than anything they've done in the past. Much of that can be credited to highly acclaimed reggae producer Karl Pitterson (Bob Marley, Steel Pulse, Burning Spear), whom they brought in to help steer the project in the right direction. It's a move that worked. Check out the up­tempo rocker "No Other Woman" for evidence that these guys can write love ballads as well. There's not as much of a Latin vibe here as some might expect, but Fourth Dimension has always tried to incorporate a larger Caribbean style into the music. It's what makes them unique. --NewTimes Magazine- Jonathan Cunningham

Repping their Caribbean and South American roots, Miami's Fourth Dimension have been playing fiery, spirited reggae for almost a decade now. All that practice has whipped the band into a super-tight machine that can routinely blast out jams like they used to be played.
