After several productive years on the Shanachie label, which resulted most recently in 2002's very fine Soul Taker album, Lucky Dube jumped to Heartbeat in 2003 and promptly released The Other Side, demonstrating yet again how utterly resistant to change his sound is regardless of what label he records for. The elements of that sound are, once again: big, emotional melodies that usually open with a dramatic swoop into the falsetto stratosphere and then fall pentatonically downward; lots of Hammond B-3 organ; and an almost exclusive focus on slow, churning Afro-roots grooves and ridiculously ripe and fulsome chord progressions.

Musically obvious he may be, but there are other kinds of depth to Lucky Dube's art. Recommended.
