Refreshing

While there is much to love about the wave of original reggae music in recent years, every once in a while a band comes along that stands out as unique and important. Out of the budding music scene in West Chester, Pennsylvania, comes Steppin' Razor, four artists who demonstrate a loyalty to their roots inspirations while exploring new avenues of creativity which underline the pertinence of their messages of hope, equality, and longing, in a world of despair, hate, and pride. From the militant anthem that introduces the album ("Overstanding") to the exultant finale ("Coming Home"), each and every track on this homemade - believe it or not - debut album captivates the listener with catchy hooks, thought-provoking lyrics, and animating basslines. The air-tight musicianship of drummer Mark Patterson and the smooth, adventurous wailings of guitarist James Hoy are the ideal complements to the on-point vocals and bass playing of John Myers and Ben "B. Hold" Bean, who occasionally switch positions, much to the delight of their fans. Myers writes the majority of the songs and is also responsible for the powerful horn harmonies on the album. But just as impressive as his craftmanship is the diversity of this band as shown in the two mellow, spiritually charged numbers by B. Hold, along with the hard-hitting bassline on "Guidance" by James Hoy. Finally, Patterson's intellectual lyrics in "Hands" prove that each member of this quartet provides indispensable creative input for a collective energy that will propel this band into the forefront of the reggae scene for many years to come. If you like Garnett Silk, Midnite, Luciano, Steel Pulse, Ooklah the Moc... anything legendary, anything new and fresh and promising, you will find yourself immersed in this album, which clearly shows these influences alongside Steppin' Razor's own new ideas, for hours and hours of listening and relistening.

awesome

just a phenomenal record all around. these guys are musically uncanny. theres alot of reggae bands coming out of the east coast these days, and i think every one of them needs to take a clue from steppin razor cuz they are amazing

I love these guys

This album is great! For all the cookie cutter wanna be's that all sound the same, its nice to hear something so refreshingly new while still reminding us of good old roots. Thank you Steppin Razor for making so many wednesdays worthwhile...and making me count the days til your next album comes out!

Gold In Rule, Steppin Razor
