Michael Rose
Babylon A Fight
Cousins
By Jeremy Sanchez

Published June 22, 2007

Certainly best known for his work with the legendary roots reggae band Black Uhuru, penning some of their finest material, Michael Rose’s solo catalogue also warrants high praise. Babylon A Fight holds true to oft-covered topics, exploring ganja issues (“Sweet Sensimenia,” “Smoke De Herb”) and expectedly focusing on a Rastafarian message while discussing social qualms (“No Heart,” “Babylon A Fight,” “Everyday A Gun”). Providing the music that will help rank this album among the best reggae releases of the year are The Agrovators and Mafia & Fluxy. It’s rare that an artist departs a successful band and discovers that being alone is as good as it looked. Michael Rose’s modern writings probably won’t become as broadly recognized as his Black Uhuru heavyweights, but Babylon A Fight truly deserves a slot near the Uhuru in any CD collection, because Rose’s solo material is simply good enough to share that common space.
