Bedouin Soundclash are one of the best musical experiences you can have. They infuse rock, reggae and ska together. Root Fire's where it started and it definitely paves the way for them to go bouncier and poppier, as they rightfully did on ensuing records. All without losing too much of their essence.
This album's lyrically deep, historically accurate when they talk about Caribbean elements, and still allows frontman Jay Malinowski to take his own spin on things. His raw, husky vocals had my friends going "Wait, that's a Canadian white boy?". They were absolutely floored in his delivery and it's no secret why he's a big part of their magic.
