Building an Ark

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jon O'Brien
Throwing everything from salsa to dub to jazz-funk into their typically eclectic melting pot of sounds, Building an Ark is the seventh full-length studio album from arguably the roots reggae scene's most progressive outfit, Californian nine-piece Groundation. The follow-up to 2009's Here I Am features ten tracks that manage to transfer the high energy and virtuoso musicianship of their improvisational live shows, including the single "Humility."
