  • Carrying the mantle of English reggae into the '90s, Steel Pulse's RAGE AND FURY cleverly combines the newer sounds of dancehall, rap and R&B with the band's core Rastafarian beliefs. Leader David Hinds sings of dishonest politicians ("The Real Terrorist"), role models decimated by a sensationalist media ("Role Model") and a chilling case of mistaken identity ("Blame On Me"). Like Maxi-Priest, Steel Pulse's commercial reggae sound relies on lots of bright synths, drum programming and rubbery-sounding bass applied liberally to tracks like Van Morrison's "Brown Eyed Girl." A horn section is introduced on a reworking of Pulse's "Ku Klux Klan," off the seminal HANDSWORTH REVOLUTION.
  • Despite focusing on many dark topics, Hinds and company are optimistic about racial equality ("Peace Party") and black pride ("Black And Proud"). Spearhead's Michael Franti raps on the Gamble/Huff penned "Black Enough?" lending street cred before RAGE AND FURY closes with the sparse dub of "KKK In The Jungle."
