"'Sorrow Tears And Blood' bookended the Nigerian army's deadly raid of the Kalakuta Republic, Fela Kuti's self-appointed state domicile, and Kuti's hostile feelings toward upper-class Nigeria are prominent on both sessions... 'Sorrow Tears And Blood', the first recording released after the Kalakuta's capture, is fiercer; the band's sound almost seeming to drip blood. Slower and more persistent, the ominous grooves here no longer bother with metaphor, crying out bluntly, "some people lost some bread, someone has just died... them leave sorrow, tears and blood." Alongside Woody Guthrie's "Struggle", this is as stirring as musical social protest gets."
