EDITORS’ NOTES

Many reggae bands use freedom as a lyrical and philosophical linchpin, but Rebelution live it musically. On their seventh studio album, the California crew move outside their core lively-up-yourself strengths of plugged-in reggae with acoustic jams like "Healing" and "Constellation." On “Trap Door,” guitarist Eric Rachmany punches in a sky-high solo that would grab Carlos Santana's attention. When Rebelution go back to their roots-reggae wheelhouse, they go hard. “Celebrate,” “City Life,” and “Settle Down Easy” are trademark Rebelution: all positive lyrics and rub-a-dub rhythms. For maximum authenticity, the band brought in acclaimed Jamaican producers Phillip "Winta" James (Protoje, Damian Marley) and Don Corleon (Sean Paul, Rihanna) to finesse the melodies and bedrock bass.

One of the best albums I've heard

It doesn't matter about slow, mid, fast tempo. This album is good and for them to influence positivity too, is even better!

Lack luster after previous release

After Falling Into Place, Rebelution had some big shoes to fill. Unfortunately, they fell short with this release. The Album is ultimately flawed by two major problems: it’s entirely mid tempo/slow songs, and lacks any memorable hooks after 2 full listens. Additionally, horns are way underutilized. Hopefully it will grow on me, but it doesn’t have me excited to keep listening.

Incredible!!!!!!

I love the original reggae beat some are departing from. The beat brings life and makes you want to move.
Voice very crisp and smooth.
