WWW, July 2010 - Even when you are not able to comprehend the German language, you will still want to listen to "Feur und Flamme" (Fire and Flames). Recorded in Munster (Germany), the album features the German band Firetime with several different vocalists. The result is a gathering of German and English lyrics on some very crucial Contemporary Roots Reggae in the style of Luciano and others.
Originally released in 2008 on Goldvibes Records, the album is very well produced in every way you can think of. The music is more than nice, it is a heartical vibe very much in the style we know as contemporary Jamaican Roots Reggae. The several German sung tracks reveal that we are not dealing here with a Jamaican release.
Firetime, throughout the whole album, shows their skillfulness. Tight where it has to be, loose where looseness is necessary. Everything played in close connection with each other, the band is obviously veteran.
Thirteen tracks, alla dem nice!
