Westbound Train



Released on September 26, 2006


Want to be notified once we get restocked?

This 2006 Hellcat debut from Boston's acclaimed ska septet places the band on a growing list of "new traditionalists", bands like the Aggrolites and the Slackers that bridge the gap between 60's reggae, soul, and blues and modern approaches, with touches of jazz and country. While sharing the stage with heavy hitters like The Toasters, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, The Street Dogs, Reel Big Fish, and The Skatalites, Westbound Train have forged their own sound, where highly danceable ska arrangements and rock steady beats are in ample supply.

This is one hell of a CD. This band mixes styles so well, even within the context of a ska/reggae/rocksteady CD such as this one, that it's worth listening to even if you think you've heard it all. It's got great standout tracks like Please Forgive Me and Good Enough, along with excellent instrumentals every now and again. I try to listen to as much as I can that would be classified as ska, and this was definitely my ska album choice of the year from two years ago. You would do well to pick this up.

This album is a must have for Traditional ska fans.It has a first generation sound with a little soul/jazz mixed in but never strays from that ska core.I also liked how it was recorded to sound like it was made many years ago.

Perhaps I have not listened to this enough yet, but I found the previous album, Five To Two, as, if not more -- for lack of a better word -- better. In general, it's a lot slower than other music to which I normally listen. Still, it's a great reggae-ska album.
