Album Review

Roots reggae is an international phenomenon, one that's played on every continent, with greater or lesser degrees of success. New York-based John Brown's Body have been doing it well for many years now, with great harmonies and strong melodies, as on "Follow Into Shadow." Singer Elliot Martin is a strong vocalist who brings a huge presence to the disc, most evident on a track like "Resonate."

This is a band that's paid its dues, but also know what it can do, and does it very well indeed. Yet there's more than professionalism at work here; there's passion behind it all, and that's the most important factor.
