Skindred - Babylon (2002) Retail CD
If ever there was a time for Skindred's Babylon, it's now. With nu-metal breaking down any remaining barriers between pop, rock, rap, metal and punk, there's surely a place for a band who can convincingly add reggae to the mix. That's Skindred's tip. Rising from the ashes of the virulently political Dub War, they've toned down the rhetoric and introduced a massive and infectious positivity, thereby raising themselves to a far higher level. This is not to say Babylon lacks intensity or pain. Singer Benji appeared on Soulfly's debut album and, here, "Bruises" reflects Max Cavalera's outraged roarmore…, "Kiss and Make Up" deals with domestic violence, while the title track's anti-police shriek and pounding metal recalls Rage Against the Machine. But, mostly, this is fun, with "Pressure", "Selector" and "Nobody" all being Skindred-gonna-getcha boasts. Yet this is not simple, bounce-along punk. Just as Cavalera cunningly mixes metal with Brazilian chants and roots rhythms, so Skindred employ reggae's sweet melodies, deep bass and complex, intertwining vocals to create a new and compelling music. "The Fear" even nods to earlier reggae-fans the Clash by rewriting their "London Calling". A real step forward. --Dominic Wills
