Album Review

Hepcat's third album, Right on Time, was released at the peak of ska-core's popularity. Consequently, it received more attention than their previous albums, but it would have deserved that attention anyway, since it's their best record to date. Unlike their ska-core peers, Hepcat keep fairly close to the sound of original ska, spiking it with some reggae, soul, rocksteady, and jazz. It's an energetic, welcoming sound that's quite entertaining, even if the group occasionally has trouble writing distinctive material. That doesn't matter, because Hepcat keep the good times going throughout the entire album, which is easily their most consistent and best thus far.

Customer Reviews

Great Ska music

Hepcat was at the height of their powers when this cd was recorded. A great follow up to their great cd "Scientific", I believe this one is even stronger. These guys were tight and in the pocket and they put out some great ska with great reggae influences. Highly recomended if you enjoy music from Jamaica. Favorite cuts are "Rudies all around" and "No Worries" but the rest of the songs are great as well including the tongue and cheek "Open Season is Closed". Fun stuff!

its outta sight

there is nothing that compares to this ska record that came out after 1996

Classic Ska

This if Hepcat's best CD - all the songs are great!
