ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The rest of the tracks are excellent stuff: reggae with personality. The vocals are happy and peppy; the instrumentation crackles with energy and a light funkiness that sets it apart. Too often, post-Marley reggae struggles with vapid overcompensation because the musicians want to sound just like Bob Marley, which leads to a death spiral from which there is no recovery. Happily, the Dimestore Prophets avoid the swirling vortex of mimicry, choosing instead to pursue their own west coast version of reggae, one uniquely their own. The end result is listeners don't have to cope with syrupy attempts at Marley emulation, which is simply too exhausting to deal with.

Members of the Dimestore Prophets include Ray Glover, who plays guitar and sings, John Wilson on drums, and Eric Groff on bass. And there's a distinct party vibe to their musicianship. Obviously, they enjoy what they're doing and do it well. If this energy carries over to their live shows, then a trip to the Pacific Northwest would be well-advised.

There's much to like about Be Yourself. There's funkadelic reggae that's benign enough for the pop crowd, but it's multifaceted enough for the reggae aficionados. Reviewed by: Christopher Zoukis and Randy Radic Huffington Post
