Beef - Last Rudy Stan D1ng (Pias)

Yours truly will probably never quite get used to the voice of Beef-singer Pieter Both. This personal opinion put aside, 'Last Rudy Stan D1ng' is not an album for true reggae lovers. The tracks on this album were clearly cooked up in a fusion-kitchen - pop and rock covered with a reggae and ska sauce - and echoes the sound of a band like No Doubt, who have proven there surely is an audience for this sort of music. 'Last Rudy Stan D1ng', in part recorded at the Brussels ICP Studios, at times sounds original (the tango-accordion on 'Station To Station'), but lacks the necessary compelling songs.
