UB40 - Promises And Lies (1993) Retail CD
It's no coincidence that UB40's biggest hits and most pleasurable songs have been their reggae rock remakes of other acts' songs--Neil Diamond's "Red Red Wine", Sonny & Cher's "I Got You Babe", the Chi-Lites' "Homely Girl", Bob Dylan's "I'll Be Your Baby Tonight", and so on. Only one of the 11 numbers on Promises and Lies is a cover tune, but the band's remake of Elvis Presley's "Can't Help Falling in Love" is a real treat. Featured in the film Sliver, the ballad gets a new momentum from UB40's horns and rhythm section and finds its obsessive quality reinforced by the reggae-dub echoes. The albummore… also includes "Reggae Music", a delightful dancehall workout which neatly balances Astro's reggae toasting against Ali and Robin Campbell's sweetly sung pop soul hook. Unfortunately, the other nine songs are full of steady grooves and admirable sentiments but little in the way of melody or fresh ideas that might separate them from hundreds of similar reggae exercises. --Geoffrey Himes
