Strength to Survive album for sale Product Description

Strength to Survive album for sale by Soja was released Jan 31, 2012 on the ATO (USA) label. Over the course of nearly 15 years, SOJA (aka Soldiers of Jah Army) have been quietly turning into one of the most solid and accomplished reggae bands in the U.S. Despite an undeniably powerful instrumental sound, their progress was slowed early on by bandleader Jacob Hemphill's vocal affectations, which explicitly evoked Bob Marley and made him sound both annoying and somewhat ridiculous.

Missteps? Strength to Survive album for sale. Yes: the two non-reggae acoustic numbers at the end of the program (one of them a misbegotten version of "Gone Today") expose all the worst things about Hemphill's vocal style, and neither of them is especially compelling in this stripped-down and groove-free format. Skip those last two numbers, though, and you've got one of the best American reggae albums of the year.   ...See Full Description
