musical taste

favorite bands
Tommy McCook Reggae In Jazz
Perhaps one of the earliest reggae-jazz albums to exist, and not half bad. Although after listening to Groundation's Hebron Gate ('02) I definitely set my expectations too high for this record... It has the occasional track w/ a stronger emphasis of the reggae-dub (an early synthesizer sound) but it doesn't take away from the value that this sound could later inspire.
Hepcat Right On Time
Perhaps one of the best reggae albums to come out of the 90's, even if being one of the more mellow due to it's highlight rocksteady (slow ska) elements.
Hepcat Scientific
This is a very nice rocksteady album that'd do it's ancestral albums proud.
Hepcat Out Of Nowhere
By Clarence Thomas, this album gets THOROUGHLY GOOD! The downside is that their least favorable tracks were placed in the beginning of this record. While post-CT there are some really good tracks, but sprinkled in this second half of the album are some tracks that're familiar to the first half aesthetically. A decent record, but in terms of quality this only serves as a nice start.
Midnite Seek Knowledge Before Vengeance
Perhaps the closest effort toward a 4/5 rating in this band's catalogue (as of now).
Midnite Jubilees of Zion
Roughly the same length as their first album, and yes, their lyrics are more condensed per track. Although some tracks tend to be repetitive lyrically, this album ties w/ their first in terms of enjoyment.
Dub Syndicate Time Boom X De Devil Dead
Oh lookie here, we got lyrics in this album! Personally not my flavor of (dub) reggae, but it might be for those that don't mind the "weird" that is Lee Scratch Perry.
