For over 20 years Joseph Hill and Culture are one of the most respected and popular reggae artists in the world. Their story begins in 1977 with their legendary release of "Two Sevens Clash" - which is still heralded as one of the greatest all time reggae releases for its prophetic revelations - and spans two decades of musical change where the group, headed by the dynamic Joseph Hill, has always moved with the times, while remaining as an identifying source of roots music. This nice and solid followup to the highly acclaimed and successful "One Stone" album proves that Joseph Hill has continue to create inspirational, uplifting reggae with a contemporary and international sound. As ever Culture's message is positive as they deal with items such as justice and equality, sharing and faith in Rastafari. All tunes are delivered in Culture's inimitable energetic style with seductive riddims played by its own band Dub Mystic.
