This is also the best reggae album of the past 20 years.Incredible trombone leads (courtesy of Calvin Cameron) mix seamlessly with nyahbinghi drumming, deep dub bass, and an excellent approach to trance-inducing yet accessible songcraft.I assure you this album will fit right in alongside the finest classics of the genre from decades long passed despite how clean and even oftentimes immaculate the production turned out.Mostly instrumental the few tracks with vocals stand just as tall, giving the trombone the rare chance to rest, and actually make me hope that if another album materializes that they integrate more as the only bad thing I can say about this album is that it can start to feel a little long by the final few songs which is alleviated when vocals arrive, so a bit more next time would be excellent.Recommended If You Like: Cedric IM Brooks, The Congos, Lee Perry, Ras Michael, and Count Ossie.Sample and/or buy at Honest Jon's Records.

afterstasis;3533416 said:it's not as bass-focused as most dub albums, but it's definitely there in quite a few of the tracks.

Much more punk than the Neurosis fellows, these guys would throw in some pretty damn fast songs that wouldn't seem at all out of place on a powerviolence record, and then follow it up with a bluegrass tune or one of their numerous classic rock covers.Kilara did put out a legit LP that had it's share of great tunes, but this compilation of their EP, splits, and other rarities is where it's at and has a much rawer production that fits this music perfectly.I've still never heard a sludge band quite like this and I don't think I ever will. If you think modern sludge has become as boring as slowed down elevator music then give this record a spin.Recommended If You Like: Neurosis, EyeHateGod, Cavity, Buzzov*en, and Grief.Visit their myspace page for samples.
