As the Commitments were to American soul music, so the Gangsters want to be to second-wave British ska. With a name taken straight from the Specials' song catalog, this Irish nine-piece band brings back the glory days of early-'80s Birmingham, when the Specials, Madness, and the Selecter ruled the scene.

Overall, a worthy effort. [N.B., "Jamaican Shuffle," the album's last tune, includes a dub version as a hidden track several minutes after song's end.]
