Editorial Reviews

The follow-up to the critically acclaimed "Yell Fire" (scanned over 100,000 RTD). "All Rebel Rockers" is Franti's fiery protest music and thought-provoking lyrics backed by seductive elements of dub, infectious dance music, and irresistible hook-infused soul. Franti has toured and performed with everyone from U2, Dave Matthews Band, Ziggy Marley, and REM to Digable Planets, Cypress Hill, The Fugees, and A Tribe Called Quest.

Been listening to music ever since Jimmy Hendrix was alive and this guy is one of the best singer songwriters I have heard. The message in his music is very powerful! My first CD was Yell Fire, after that I bought everything he has put out - truely a very gifted artist that appeals to all ages (I'm pushing 60).

Michael Franti and Spearhead have outdone them selves with this album produced in Jamaica! Rockin fun songs full of love and anger about injustice and a message of peace that sound awesome!!!

This album is worth buying! I love almost all the songs which is rare with any album or band! I don't listen to much reggae, this is so much more than that. You can even hear even some Eminem influence in the song Future.

If you like Spearhead or Michael Franti at all, you should definitely pick this one up... you will be impressed!!!

If only radio would play it, instead of the JUnK music thats empty and lame! All Rebel Rockers is the best CD I have bought since Rage Against the Machine debuted!

I can appreciate that this may not be his best recording. Personally I like "Stay Human" and "Yell Fire" and I had a hard time imagining how he was going to top or follow "Yell Fire". A lot of the same influences are on this recording - almost like it picks up where that left off. Still - there is enough great music on this to make it worthwhile - and every time I listen to it I find something new to appreciate. Michael Franti is the modern day revolutionary song writer of our time - just like the Clash were in the 80's. I think his message is beautiful and thought provoking. This is worth buying for "Nobody Right, Nobody Wrong" alone.

Michael Franti has been captivatingly cerebral since his stint with the Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy. Nothing I can say about All Rebel Rockers is more important than the music on it. This is energetic enough for the dancehall, and yet it's also peaceful soul music that crosses genre boundaries that really don't exist. Franti addresses the causes and thoughts of the common man, and speaks for poor people and refugees everywhere. Taking their mark from the incredibly strong Yell Fire!, this just raises the roof. There's no filler here. It's a strong, satisfying work of art.

It would be hard to top, or even match, a masterpiece like "Yell Fire," that's a given. But "All Rebel Rockers" is still better than 95% of all the music coming out these days. Franti's lyrics are still pointed, and there is a good balance between "life is beautiful" songs and "rebel" songs. Musically the tunes are very strong. It actually might be a bit better "introduction" to Franti's music than "Yell Fire," which is something of a concept album.

Cherine Anderson is featured on several tracks. In some cases her harmonies complement Franti's voice really well, while on other tracks she just talks in the background. I don't care for that sort of stuff, but I can see how others might find it appealing. She does seem to be enjoying herself, and that adds to the atmosphere. Overall this is a great collection of material and a must-have for all Franti fans.

Another great album from Spearhead. I discovered Yell Fire! less than a year ago and it stayed in my CD player until this came out. Saw them live outdoors on a summer night right after the All Rebel Rockers release, what a fun show! Spearhead is the best music since Bob Marley for a reggae loving bald head like me. Yell Fire still seems better, but there are at least six awesome songs on this record. Nobody Right, Nobody Wrong should be a big hit. It reminds me of Redemption Song, a song to sing along to with friends around a campfire on the beach.

I've been hearing some of these tracks on the radio for the past couple of weeks and have been anxiously waiting for the release today. Starts out with a much more traditional early-Reggae sound, then mixes in a bit of hip hop and a more familiar acoustic Franti/Spearhead sound. It's a little bit different twist upon first listen, but if you're a Franti fan, you'll like it! Maybe leans more towards "Yell Fire" or "I Know I'm Not Alone" stuff, than say..."Stay Human", plus the new Kingston feel. Works great for me!

At 55 years old I am pretty hesitant to buy music from new artist as I always feel disappointed, not the case here. I LOVE this record! everything about it works beautifully. Great lyrics, great music, and fantastic production. Seriously best record I have bought in years.
