Alongside label mates like the Aggrolites and the Slackers, Boston's Westbound Train is one of a new breed of bands closing the circle between classic soul, jazz, and reggae. On this release, producer Dave Hillyard of the Slackers brought out the loose vibe of classic soul and jazz the band had always loved. RIYL: Hepcat, the Slackers, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, or any artist released by Studio One, Treasure Island, or Trojan Records in the 60's.

I don't feel compelled to write reviews, usually, but with this album, I have to make an exception. WBT really comes into their own on this record, and seamlessly blend soul, ska and reggae to make a fantastic combination. This record takes the best elements of their previous three and make their greatest LP since! Congrats WBT, and I'll see you on tour this summer. Keep the ska flame burning!
