It's a shame that the best track on this LP is "Prophecy" because I and I know that Justin has plenty better material, some he can't even remember. Why even last year, on his return to the studios, he made two superb songs that Pama released on their "This Is Reggae" series. Namely "Sinners Where You Gonna Hide", and "If It Is Love You Need". But Justin has made so much good music, it's a crying shame his name isn't always heard of. He ought to re-record old Duke Reid sides like "I'm Gonna Teach The Youth", "Once A Man", "The Higher The Monkey Climbs", and even "Rub Up Push Up". It's a shame, too, that the big Duke is no longer participating in the recording industry 'cause he alone knows how to record Justin the right way. Not to say that Larry's not an equally good producer though. If you didn't know already well Justin Hinds is one singer of Jamaican music who is consistent in the quality of the songs he creates. He is an intelligent man inspired by what he knows of God. If that was not so his music would be quite ordinary for his voice isn't particularly outstanding. His music has the power of the hypnotist, the humour of the comedian, and the wisdom of the prophet. I love "Prophecy", "Babylon Children", and "Precious Morning", while "Fire", "Other Land" and "Spotlight" are close in my estimation. A welcome album from a ska authentic and an original.
