Those who want nothing more than Rasta-metal screech coming from the throat of Bad Brains should pass on this solo disc. Those who skanked to the reggaefied groove of H.R.'s aka Joseph 1, Paul Hudson so-so earlier discs on Olive Tree should like this tons...Rather than go for a standard roots/dancehall style, the accent is on a harder, Parliament-style proto-gogo with touches of soul and jazz.

    This is actually pretty good

    I really love Bad Brains and feel they are they are not the greatest punk band but the greatest band ever. However, this might not be Bad Brains and nothing like Bad Brains' hardcore punk edge, but this CD is defiantely worth a shot giving them a chance. I actually found this CD to be a really nice change from the fast paced punk stuff to a more calm raggae beat. Although they have done really great raggae/dub songs as Bad Brains. All I can say is that this CD was a great new experience.
