Ninjaspy Pi Nature
The genre blending choices here are certainly... Different than expected... While not excellent-worthy this album has it's moments that make it stand out from other prog metal albums out there, but I not cannot help hearing how such their reggae influences featured were rather chunky as opposed to well blended. For reference sake, check out Skindred's or Insolence's discography. Where the extremes of this album differ greatly from the prior bands mentioned, Skindred and Insolence have imo managed to better incorporate metal and reggae into music that's more palatable to the ear.
Groundation Each One Teach One
I'm pretty sure I've been spoiled by Hebron Gate 'cause this album pales significantly by comparison. Even with only the middle section (or general second half) as this record serving as this album's strongest series of tracks, this experience overall is still a very solid reggae album for those looking something different in reggae. One More Day, If I, Waterfall, Nyabinghi Order, and Each One Teach One serve as my highlights for this album.
311 Music
An entertaining and instrumentally impressive first album all around, but cannot help in hearing the familiarity of Sublime w/ less reggae influence... I know this album released first, but this audibly comes off as a less impressive debut by comparison. At least their vocal sections are far more pleasant to hear than from Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Sinizen Grass Roots Culture
The strength of this album stems from their instrumental sections while the vocal sections could sound better. There're a few tracks here worth hearing every now and then. Definitely a beginner's album into modern reggae.
Borialis Straight Out Of the Rug Room
A really watered down 311 album has never sounded so "meh" until I heard this... While certainly not awful, it just sounds too repetitive to even be warranted as "good."
Salmonella Dub Salmonella Dub
Some of the longer tracks surprisingly are not as good as heard in their later albums on this album, especially early on in this record, too. Aside from that initial stumble, some pretty decent dub music.
Salmonella Dub Inside The Dub Plates
A trance album that has a lot to offer regarding instrumental variation, especially regarding the use of horns & general reggae influences, although the bass in this record is a tad overbearing to recommend a repetitive listen. Highlight Track: Push On Thru
