Yeah! Authentic rude boy, Jamaican reggae sounds with soul from this band, based in Los Angeles. The recording has the sounds of an old reggae record from the ‘70s or a Motown record from the ‘60s. If I wouldn’t have known better, I would have guessed that this was an old recording. The only give away is there are no pops and hisses. Boo! My review copy came with a generic Hellcat sleeve and a label stuck onto it to show what band and track listing it contained. Another thumbs down, a CD-R. Most reviewers around the world are music geeks. Why would we endure so much music? Not receiving a retail ready copy of a release sucks! Nothing to look at or read while listening. Isn’t that all part of the experience?
