Not really sure how a band combining reggae, metal, funk, and pop in one band is a gimmick. Maybe they're Bad Brains, but not a gimmick.

I encourage everyone that likes Skindred to also check out Fear Nuttin' Band. They opened for Streetlight Manifesto awhile back and were awesome.

Just because they're the same genre doesn't mean they're the same band. Spoken like someone who knows absolutely nothing about raggae.

Wow, I was trying to defend your review. Last time I do that.

I was just telling you that you need to actually know something about a genre before you start making comparisons like that when you don't know what the hell you're talking about.

No, I don't know anything about reggae or particularly care, I was trying to say Skindred's not a gimmick by pointing out a well-respected band that, I guess to an untrained reggae ear, does something similar conceptually.

But I guess I was wrong to do that. Again, last time I try to be helpful.

I really enjoyed Babylon, and had no idea that they put this album out in 2007. I'll have to check it out, especially since it's supposed to be better than their last effort.

By the way, when I tell people about Skindred, I usually mention that Skindred are to Jamaican culture what System of a Down is to Armenian culture. The "ethnic" influences are definitely there but it's an "American" form.

Nu-metal/rap rock gone raggae gone punk....very creatively fused together.
Made for radio.....yet I've never heard it on the radio. Ever.
You're an idiot.
