This lp has everything a reggae fan could possibly want- great grooves, pertinent vocals, and Lee "Scratch" Perry.
This is certainly one of the most underrated and consistent efforts I have come across. Romeo's stylings mix perfectly with the tight grooves of the Upsetters. He came a long way from his "Wet Dream" single in the late 60's, and it shows through clearly on the lp.....Of course, Perry's presence is written all over the lp, which just adds to its greatness.
Fans of this lp should also get Perry's amazing "Arkology" 3 cd set for many alternate takes from Romeo, Junior Murvin, etc... It offers incredible insight into the amazing mind of both Perry and Romeo, who made a great team.
"Lucifer, son of the morning, I'm gonna chase you outta earth." -Max Romeo
You did just that, Maxxie. Jah be praised.

War ina Babylon is a masterpiece. The songs range from political unrest [title track, stealing in the name of the lord] to fun [smokey room] without loosing any sort of groove or flow. The vinyl [simply vinyl] is a stellar, heavy pressing with a quality printed sleeve. War ina Babylon is a perfect companion piece to the Upsetters Super Ape. In fact, they have nearly identical instrumentation tracks... which is remarkable because the feel of the two albums are so different. Super Ape is dark and heady, while War ina Babylon is upbeat and sunny... Fantastic record. Pick it up if you find it....

Foundational music from the infamous Black Ark Studio. Hugely influential album that inspired many. In fact, "Chase The Devil" was sampled by The Prodigy in their early hit "Out of Space."

I think this is Max Romeoʻs second CD. It came quickly and in great shape. Most of the CD is amazing material, some of the songs are a little bit goofy for my taste.
