There was still a bit of Rasta message, however, spiritual matters were never far from the surface in Third World's music, but it was never hard-core roots.
The rhythms, though, are incredibly intoxicating. The percussion is just so good. So clear and sharp. Mix that with a big, rumbling bass and you have a great sound. Rugs's voice is higher-pitched on this one, but wonderfully delivered. It also features some Stevie Wonder-style harmonica, unusual for a reggae track. Some lovely guitar swirls around this track.
This wasn't surprising, it is a great track with an infectious summery feel and an instantly memorable, singalong hook. This a great stuff, that bass line is superb, as indeed are the horns. UB40 surely took a lot of influence from this. One person found this helpful. The most important instrument in a reggae band? Well, it's got to be the bass, hasn't it? Shaking the speaker cones and driving the music onwards. Third World's basslines are endlessly inventive - deep and sinister on "Cold Sweat", ducking and weaving on "Now That We Found Love", popping and slapping on the instrumental "Journey to Addis".

Or maybe it's the drums. This album has sharp, clear Compass Point recorded drums, with that typically 'dry' Island Records acoustic that hasn't dated badly at all. The hi-hat cuts through beautifully without slicing off your ears, and again the playing is constantly inventive, but ever losing the groove.
Or maybe it's the guitars? Not content to spend a whole album going 'onk-chinka-onk-chinka-onk-chinka Or maybe it's the vocals. Third World possess two or three excellent, soulful male vocalists, with occasional vocal spots by another bloke with a subterranean basement-voice, and lost of high and pure harmonies thrown into the mix. My only tiny problem with this album is the in-yer-face Rastafari philosophy that pretty much drives every lyric. The faithful will love it, but those who find it hard to accept a 20th century African head of state as the second incarnation of Christ may struggle with some of the meanings here.
But it's mostly about the music, and Third World have created a beautiful album. No two songs sound alike, and all have rich sounds and textures that make them a constant delight and stand repeated listening.
I should add a note of caution for downloaders - make sure you get the 7'40" album version of "Now That We Found Love" and not the single edit that some online retailers not Amazon are flogging. This CD remaster is excellent - faithful to the original I have the vinyl pressing from and it has definitely NOT been ruined by putting the sound through the too-good-to-be-true filter.Sep 23, · Hello Select your address Best Sellers Today's Deals New Releases Books Electronics Customer Service Today's Deals New Releases Books Electronics Customer ServiceReviews:
