Overview

As a reggae classic, Trinity harks back to the early days of roots reggae. Even though this album was recorded in the '90s, its lovely harmonies, overtly political lyrics, and spiritual vibe recall a time in the early 70s when reggae was a definite part of a spiritual/political movement. Dube's fabulously aching vocals float through the CD, artfully carrying his message of redemption and healing. All of the tracks deliver good, solid reggae rhythms, but the standouts are the title song, which boasts gospel overtones and a message of racial unity and "Big Boys Don't Cry," a melancholy love song that showcases his emotional range as well as his South African mbaqanga roots.
