Boomkat Product Review:
On-U Sound coax classic styles from living legend Horace Andy on a batch of mostly brand new songs, but also including a heavy duty version of his Massive Attack masterwork ’Safe From Harm’
Adrian Sherwood reprises his producer role in a similar mode to his work on Lee Scratch Perry’s late career recordings, here bringing the best out of one of Jamaica’s most prized vocalists with 10 cuts that place Andy’s mellifluous croon centerstage on upfront roots reggae grooves. The more forceful version of ‘Safe From Harm’ is a highlight and symptomatic of the album’s pretty straight-played style, going easy on the dub FX to sustain the spotlight on the vocals. It’s one of the reruns of classic Horace along with the dry take on ‘Mr. Bassie’, while the rest variously takes in sugar sweet roots in ‘Watch Over Them’ and the lilting lovers sway of ‘Materialist’, and backed by warm horn section on ‘Today Is Right Here’, a brooding acknowledgement of the times delivered with timeless pathos.
