You Might Like These Too! Who Reggae. Track five, entitled "The Aggro Band Plays On" seems like something that you would hear the corny island-influenced house band playing to entertain sunburned, middle aged suburbanites on a Caribbean cruise. This track is also where the aforementioned "more aggressive" singing style comes into play. I've never really cared for it in previous Aggrolites albums and it really doesn't do it for me in this one.
From an instrumental and vocal perspective, I don't really agree with this track and, personally, I would have left it out of the album.
The next track "Camel Rock" is slightly less abrasive but is still out of sync with the rest of the album. It sounds as if it's a slightly less cheesy continuation of the previous track. To me, both tracks seem like the American Idol winner of reggae tunes - while they've been recorded and distributed to the masses, they're not to be taken seriously. It's interesting that these two tracks were placed directly in the middle of the album - they almost serve as a sort of intermission between that two halves.
The second half of the album is slightly more uptempo than the first half. It starts off with two instrumental tracks and then we're hit with "Complicated Girl". The Aggrolites really nail the classic roots-reggae harmonic singing on this one.
It's unfortunate that the track is only two minutes long but, hey, I'll take what I can get. I would go so far as to say that it's one of my favorite songs on the disc. From there, the album moves through one more instrumental tune and then comes to a close. I have no regrets with purchasing this album - especially because I only paid half price for it I went halves on it with a friend of mine.
It's just what I needed as we transition from the long, brutal winter into spring. It served as an audible ray of sunshine on an otherwise cold and icy day. If you like The Aggrolites or reggae in general and you're looking for something new, I'd recommend this album along with discs from 10 Ft Ganja Plant, Hepcat and Roots Radics. How the mighty have fallen:. With that said It's udderly void of energy, nothing like what we've come expect from such a great band. Review: RIFF-it. RIFF-it good.
