"Roof Club" is Reggae National Tickets' fifth album and also the follow-up to last year's "La Isla". This Italian group's musical approach on their brand new delivery is very much the same as executed on their predecessor. All usual "RNT" ingredients are here again: the crisp and clear sound, well constructed songs and nice musical arrangements, appealing horn lines, solid vocal performances and a blend of different musical flavours with reggae music as a major influence, which is underlined by the group's combination tune with Morgan Heritage. All these ingredients make "Roof Club" an entertaining album, although one might possibly regret the fact that the tunes which incorporate Italian lyrics are not understandable for those who lack the knowledge of the Italian language. The majority of the pieces on this album have the potential to reach a broad audience as Reggae National Tickets provide a very accessible sound with something for everyone. Although every track has its own merits some pieces on this album are definitely the best and most enjoyable efforts. These include "Il Mondo", "I & I Praises" - the aforementioned combination with Morgan Heritage - "Anima", "Kingston Rockstones" and "Rebel".
