Steel Pulse African Holocaust
- Words: J. David Marston
- Label: Ras
It's been seven years since Steel Pulse's last proper studio album, which rightfully garnered a Grammy nod, and 26 since their groundbreaking debut, which remains a critical highpoint. On African Holocaust, these British Rastafarian heavyweights remain a force-political, rootsy and polished as ever. Conceivably, this would be the only complaint about the album-the studio work serves up none of the grimy soul that typically radiates from roots reggae, or the band's live shows. While the arrangements and lyrical content are top notch, one can sense a maturity and buffed clarity to David Hinds' reggae vision that some may find slightly alienating.
