Today's track was recently premiered over at Relix, and serves as a definition of this album's direction. It shows their direction, their capabilities, and that you can sing over a good Reggae track and not dilute the instrumental beauty. Try it out.
It can't get more well-rounded than that. The bass is simple yet strong, the melody is catchy, but most importantly the vocals have that tenor that almost makes it sound like Smokey Robinson decided Reggae was the next best thing.
Of course that's what makes this track special. This track is slightly different, and it's great, but it's not my favorite. The album on the other hand, is made up of interesting details and quality lyrics. This is just a good single within a stream of great Reggae.

The rest of it should have classic Rock-like progressions, well portrayed Dub influences, Jazz roots, and a vibe that'll manipulate the empty spaces into beauty. It's not without a couple of average tracks, but as a whole it's a great display of their capability. As a whole it shows they can make beautiful sounds happen, and unlike some newer and some seasoned bands, it shows they can make that happen without overdoing it.
