Culture's new release is rich with some of reggae's most acclaimed talents from Jamaica such as Dwight Pickney (guitar), Glen Brown (bass), Sticky and Harry T (percussion), Clive Hunt (keyboards), Nambo, Chico and Bobby Ellis (horns), Pam Hall (backing Vocals), and top-notch cast of other singers and musicians. They bubble and pop at just the right moment, providing the tight support you expect from a Clive Hunt or a Culture production. Joseph Hill displays his in-depth understanding of spiritual, physical, and political debauchery today and is not afraid to expose Babylon's wrong-doings or offer solutions. He uses strong words (the man could write a book!), humor and fresh vocal punches to make his point and appeal to listeners on a variety of levels. You will find no musical compromises here. The time has come for Culture and all righteous humanity.
