    Not even the REAL UB40, The real UB40 album for 2018 is out next month! And quite possibly the worst reggae album I’ve ever heard!

    First off let me say I'm a long term fan of all things UB40, it's great to hear Ali's voice along with Astro. But this album sounds cheap, like they are singing along to a synth, where's the proper brass section? The Campbell brothers need to sort out their differences and reunite the full band again as this is just lacking, expected much got little, dissappointed. If you want a great reggae listen buy Holly Cook's latest album instead, it's sublime.
  • Quite Disappointing :-(

    I'm quite disappointed with this album overall. Whilst it's nice to hear the voices of former UB40 vocalists Ali Campbell & Astro it's really let down by the poor production and lack of any real musical depth. Ali's solo releases have often been hit-n-miss but his previous LP (Silhouette) was a step in the right direction, even the acoustic album he released had some enjoyable moments but this album feels like he's taken ten steps backwards. The choice of songs covered on this "Labour Of Love" aren't really part of the problem, (although why on earth would anyone mess with Barrington Levy's classic "Here I Come" I'll never know!), the selection includes some true Reggae classics like Gregory Isaacs' "Rumours", Ken Boothe's "Moving Away" & Culture's "International Herb". The problem is that it literally sounds like Ali & Astro are singing over those terrible karaoke backing tracks you can find on iTunes or Spotify that are used by those one-man pub tribute acts. Where's the powerful horn section? Why is all the drum & bass so basic, computerised and repetitive? Why would Ali release an album this disappointing and stamp the name UB40 on it when it does not have that true 'UB40' sound? If you haven't heard the original versions of these tracks then do yourself a massive favour and please go check them out! Major improvements are required by Ali & his production crew to raise the bar musically if they want to replicate the original UB40 sound and to remain relevant within modern Reggae music.
  • Poor production

    I’ve always loved those guys but I feel the music is so poorly produced on this album Like it’s been rushed Some of the music is so basic my kid could have done it on a xylophone or a cheap keyboard Some of the songs are great vocally But the rest feels lazy Nowhere near the quality you guys have produced in the past And I’ve listened at least 10 times before writing this Go back Re produce the music and then release again Please I like most Just not the production πŸ‘πŸ»
