Album Reviews

Reggae Reviews:
After two albums on the DubRise label, Army switches to the premier Virgin Islands reggae label, I Grade, for his third effort. The resulting sound -- largely courtesy of producer/guitarist Tuff Lion -- is fuller and more lush than his debut effort, "Yesterday's News". It's so lush, in fact, that when combined with his increasingly smooth and soulful vocals (which too have improved over the past five years), Rasta Awake sounds like the Maxi Priest album fans have been awaiting for the past decade. - More

Reggae Vibes:
Army's "Rasta Awake" is the second album coming from the I Grade New Release Trilogy, and just like it predecessor -- Ancient King's "Conquering Sound" -- it's a worthwhile collection of tunes coming from St. Croix, Virgin Islands, the little island that has brought us some fresh and impressive roots music in the new millenium, including releases from Midnite, Bambu Station, Yahadonai, and Dezarie, to name a few.  - More
