CD Review: John Brown's Body's 'Kings And Queens'

John Brown's Body
Kings And Queens
Easy Star Records

Vocalist, Elliot Martin, leads the charge with reggae-focused tunes that are inspired by British reggae, roots music, dub and bass, and electronic music. The Brooklyn-based group releases a new album from one of the leading reggae labels in the world, Easy Star Records. There is a strong horn and brass presence, with bass, keyboards, and programming. The reggae beats are classic and memorable. There are elements of rock, alternative, and trance music, too. Even though many people know what reggae music is, John Brown's Body attempts to reinvent the genre with wonderful results. There are twelve tracks in all. Fans of reggae will love Kings And Queens. ~ Matthew Forss
