"DC Soundclash: Drastics in good measure"

The Drastics previous albums explore similar territory but this album has the band settling in on their sound. This album finds the band settling in with their own sounds and their own vocalists, Fada Dougou and Zulu (who both show up on their previous albums). Zulu appears first on “Redlight;” he has a thick dancehall delivery, similar to a rootsier Bounty Killer. Fada Dougou is more of a singer, and this is showcased on “Good Time Tonight,” a soulful reggae groove – think Al Green meets Dennis Brown. - Bobby Bobson
