Roots Rock Riot
Skindred at it's finest. A great mix of reggae and metal where the songwriting is fresh and the sound is like Bob Marley was a angsty teenager and fan of Rage Against The Machine. Mixed together by light dub and electro this album is very British, very fun, very energetic and above all memorable.
Metal Reggae Rock
I really love the sound and style of Forest Swords. Glitchy sampling of inaudible babble, lo-fi guitar noises and a healthy dose of dub-beats. The percussion is constant, and the music flutters in and out of context. It makes for very chill, but also a bit unsetteling music. Chill and unsettling, that's me.
Until That Day
Easy Star All-Stars
The best of the best; the all-star artists of the Easy Star label come together to do amazing things, among other cover-albums this EP with originals by a whole team of dreadheads. It makes for an interesting mix and look into the different sides of the genre.
The United Nations, Xavier Rudd
Rudd teaming up with a African reggae act? Couldn't be more psyched! But alas, the result is dry, lacks inspiration and tends to disappear as a nondescript tree in the monotonous forest of reggae. It lacks an image.

The Orbserver in the Star House
Lee 'Scratch' Perry, The Orb
A weird marriage, between The Orb and LSP, but there is no denying reggae and chill-out go together like cake and icing. Sadly the beats on this album have too much 'pep in their step' to really be relaxing, and LSP performance doesn't do it justice.
