Updated Album Reviews

New music has showered into 2016 as we catch you up on the 5 new albums we reviewed, released by Pepper, The Movement, Unified Highway, Mighty Mystic, and Roots of Creation. Read each review and share with us your review and star rating…

With album reviews, everyone has an opinion and no one is right or wrong, but the discussion is what we look forward too — as long as there is a discussion, people will continue to discover the music and listen for themselves. We want to hear your perspective and how the music speaks to you in contrast to our written reflections. The topic is always up for discussion as we want you to reply in a comment with a review & rating of your own!

Coming up, we’ll have new reviews on new albums from Rebelution, Harrison Stafford, Nahko, Dirty Heads, Vybz Kartel, Alborosie, Raging Fyah, Jah Works, Magic! and the list is growing!

Remember to stop by the site every Monday as we post new album reviews from both new & past releases from around the reggae-rock genre. You can view all of our Album Reviews under our Editorials tab by clicking HERE

Unified Highway – Unified Highway

“On the whole, I credit this album for experimenting more outside the common reggae chucks and horns. There’s reggae, but this album embraces the sampling and experimentation of something new, which I really enjoyed in some areas and not so much in others. I just wish there was more of that experimentation to differentiate itself from what Rebelution found success in…” READ MORE

Mighty Mystic – The Art of Balance

“All in all The Art Of Balance is certainly worth a good listen, and going forward it is clear that Mighty Mystic plans to keep us completely off balance, hitting us with either a pair of hard roots verses or one of his passionate slow burners…” READ MORE

Roots of Creation – Livin Free

“The length of ‘Livin Free’ makes it an album that takes a while to completely digest, but after a few listens all the musical elements begin to unfold. The New England band’s latest release feels like the sound of a band on the cusp of a breakout. The question is whether that’s among reggae or jam fans…perhaps both…” READ MORE
