iTunes Review

This divinely funky album from Jamaican reggae trio Black Uhuru always gets us with its one-two punch. First, the group's laidback island sound draws us in with hypnotic drums and dissonant piano, like on the mesmerizing "No Loafing (Sit and Wonder)." Then, on tracks like the uplifting "World Is Africa,โ€ lead singer and primary songwriter Michael Rose proceeds to blow us away with his lyrics about the power of the homeland.

Sinsemilla was produced (funded) by Sly & Robbie themselves after producing the group's first two albums. They first released the album in Jamaica on their TAXI label, then licensed it to Island.

The entirety of the publishing credits were wrongly attributed to Michael Rose, who came up with only the lyrics. The music should have been credited to Sly and Robbie, but as Robbie says: you pay to learn. These credit details aside, a great album indeed.
