World Peace

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
While Culture has made a handful of truly outstanding albums over the course of its 27-year career, it has always had a little bit of trouble emerging from the shadow of Two Sevens Clash, its epoch-making sophomore album from 1977 even the press materials for World Peace start out with a mention of that album. So the question about World Peace, as it has been with every album since Two Sevens Clash, is: how does it measure up? And the answer is: better than any album the band has recorded in a decade. It's hard to know just what has invigorated the aging Joseph Hill, but he is singing with more force and conviction than we've heard in years; and the band that was ...

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
While Culture has made a handful of truly outstanding albums over the course of its 27-year career, it has always had a little bit of trouble emerging from the shadow of Two Sevens Clash, its epoch-making sophomore album from 1977 even the press materials for World Peace start out with a mention of that album. So the question about World Peace, as it has been with every album since Two Sevens Clash, is: how does it measure up? And the answer is: better than any album the band has recorded in a decade. It's hard to know just what has invigorated the aging Joseph Hill, but he is singing with more force and conviction than we've heard in years; and the band that was organized to back him up consisting of The Firehouse Crew and members of Shaggy's backup group sounds like the rumble of thunder and the crack of a whip. As always, Hill's melodies are as simple and obvious as nursery rhyme ditties, and as usual, they are insanely catchy and almost endlessly entrancing. On World Peace, Hill chose to reprise a couple of songs from the old book, "Dog a Go Nyam Dog" and "Never Get Weary," but both come off sounding like new compositions. Highlights from the newer material include the strangely funky and horn-heavy "Holy Mount Zion," the Nyahbinghi-influenced "Babylon Falling," and the exquisitely sanctified "Walk in Jah Light." But his real moment of triumph comes on "Selection Train," on which he proves that he is still capable of singing the line "reggae train is coming" without losing his audience. How many other reggae singers can do that?
