This record was recommended to me from a trusted friend and I loved it the instant I placed the needle down. The really fascinating thing though, is that it somehow gets better every time I listen to it. And I'm not even exaggerating here... it sounds better every time you hear it... and I've listened to it A LOT!
Liam has a beautiful, soft, rootsy voice - he's not Gregory Isaacs... there's more honesty and searching, but that soothing energy is there. Musically, the album goes from completely stripped down folk-like numbers to smooth, modern reggae groovers like The Frightnrs album from a couple years ago. No surprise there, with Leon Michels in the mix for both this and that LP.
