'Creation', the 2007 debut album by Jah Love, a five-member band from Pavia in Italy, didn't make it this far north, but we're happy to offer you its successor 'Strength For Life'. Different from other Italian reggae acts like SteelA or Jaka, Jah Love sticks to a repertoire in English (the only exception on the album is 'Tell DJ'), smoothly switching back and forth between roots and (conscious) dancehall. The album didn't immediately blow us away (vocally the gentlemen seem to know what they're doing, but musically 'Strength For Life' could be a tad more exciting), but is still a nice inbetweener.
