Our friends over at Classic Rock have just released their 50 Best Albums of 2017 so far.
After having a quick look, we were proud to see not just one, but two of our artists’ albums have made the list!
Although we are excited and happy to be on this list, it’s not surprising – given the talent of both groups.
Both Sharks and Jah Wobble & The Invaders of the Heart have produced sensational records that are unlike anything we’ve heard in a long time.
The whole journey of releasing an album is a long one, and a lot of work has been put into these records by the bands, the 3Ms crowd, and many others, and so it’s especially rewarding to see the work pay off with recognition on this level.
Below are the summaries, links to the full reviews, and where you can buy the albums.
Sharks – Killers Of The Deep
“Time has wrought changes on Sharks’ sounds, and now their rock is more melodic, but it’s very effective. From the jittery Music Break Out to the very catchy Ya Ya Pop, this is a smart, shiny collection and a surprising return.”
Jah Wobble & The Invaders Of The Heart – The Usual Suspects
“There’s jazz-level musicianship throughout, and yet, crowd pleaser that he is, Wobble never ceases to entertain. As a live date, they’re staggeringly good and The Usual Suspects effectively duplicates the dancehall experience for armchair skankers.”
