With 'First Light' the Easy Star All-Stars, best known for their excellent cover versions of albums by The Beatles, Radiohead and Pink Floyd, finally release an album filled with their own productions and saying they hit the bull's-eye is perhaps an understatement. Let's get straight down to business: 'First Light' is a brilliant album! Both musically (roots, ska, drum & bass, neo soul) and vocally (the alternation between male and female lead vocals) the ladies and gentlemen of the Easy Star All-Stars guarantee a very varied album for which each track was performed almost perfectly. Add a few bonus mixes by good people like Dubmatix or Alchemist and some great guest appearances (Tony Tuff, Lady Ann, Junior Jazz, Cas Haley) and you know you're holding a gem. Finally an album that gave yours truly goose bumps again!
