Product Description

REVIEW
“Few American-based reggae bands have shown the commitment and dedication of  The Ark Band, whose latest release Love is What We Need (Ark Band) is a textbook example of what’s best in American-based reggae. Whether the subject matter is “Pain and Misery,” “Drive By Shooting” or “Rastafari”, the uplifting intent of the lyrics is underpinned by a pulsing rhythmic structure and melodic surface with tight vocals augmented by harmonies, tasty guitar and organ fills and percussive invention. Co-produced by the band and Iawatha “Amha” Selassie and mixed and mastered by the legendary Jim Fox of Lion and Fox Recording Studio, this is an impressive set of music from a band that’s ready to break out into the mainstream without losing any of its roots.”
Chuck Foster – THE BEAT (VOL. 19 NO. 4)
