“Nearly 40 years after Marley has left the building, the reggae mantle has passed through the arch to this new generation that just plain scorches. A smoking reggae crew that has already hit it out of the park ups their game and comes in with a hotter, tighter set that owns contemporary reggae, no disrespect to Marley (whose kids show up here as well). There’s a lot of good modern reggae out there these days, but this is the gold standard.” – Midwest Record
“Few albums have the ability to captivate from the beginning to end, but this stunning new release from GRAMMY award winning reggae legends Morgan Heritage does that and more.”
– TopShelf Reggae
