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
Salmonella Dub Killervision
Some lyrical repetitions can be forgiven in this reggae album since (finally) they're outside of the romantic spheres w/in a poppy musical landscape. Here you have a different reggae record w/ strong electronica influences that border along a trance quality that create a pretty chilled album, even amongst their more audibly aggressive moments.
The Green Marching Orders
My first hear of a "pop reggae" album, I think... Tracks w/ a more formulaic beat per track (check [I Will]), onomatopoeia for lyrics (check [All I Need, Foolish Love]), and a stronger presence of electronica alongside faster tempos (check [Feel So Cool]). A different audible experience from this band, where not bad, the record doesn't necessarily improve upon their Hawai'i 13 album. Where still an impressive album, it's just not my preference. Highlight tracks: Marching Orders, Going Up, The Garden.
The Green Hawai'i '13
A drastic improvement over their last album. Much more instrumental diversity can be heard on each track, outside of the romantically lyrical, to stand out on this record. Sadly, it is the lyrics of a few songs that keep this album from being a solid 4/5 rating in my ears. Still an album worth adding to anyone's reggae collection.
The Green Ways & Means
Some pretty good reggae w/ hints of electronica. The biggest grievance to this album is the choice of lyrics. Nearly every track pertains to some romanticism which is one of my music peeves. Great production & solid instrumentations all around. Perhaps my best reference for a 3/5 rated "new reggae" album. Highlight tracks: Ways & Means, Transparent People, and That's the Way.
By The Rivers By The Rivers
Vocal harmonies are a plus, but the instrumentals sound too consistent for each track. To be precise THEY DO have their unique identity (another plus), however the "level" of such instrumental complexity sound being about the same, and that lack of variability, could argue this album as a solid 3/5 rating. Highlight tracks: Hit and Run, Take Control, Rocksteady.
