Wings Of A Dove
This originally ran in the St. Louis Post Dispatch in 1992.
Since its landmark release, "Two Sevens Clash," back in
1977, Culture has been one of the most respected and admired
vocal groups in reggae history.
"Wings Of A Dove," Culture's most recent work, comes 15
years after that outstanding debut, and although it can't
compare with that initial recording (and not many can), it's
still an excellent release.
The 10 new songs are tight, extremely catchy, and are
written and produced by Culture's leader, the one and only
Joseph Hill. This living legend continues to sing righteous tunes
while his rough, impassioned voice remains as strong and
irresistable as ever.
From the hypnotic chant of "Marriage In Canaan," to
personal favorites "Freedom Time," "Rub A Dub Style," "Pass
On," and the title track, this CD is a real killer.
The production isn't as raw as some of Culture's
previous material, but the slick 90's sound is quickly
offset by Hill's authentic Jamaican delivery. Through that
unmistakable singing style and his conscious, spiritual
lyrics, "Wings Of A Dove" proves once again why Culture is
one of the best roots harmony groups around today.
