Way too much fillers and the descent tunes are too long. Though there are a handful of nice tunes, it's mostly a waste of vinyl. A2 is a repeated drum driven song that never gets interesing and it's 9 minutes long. Plain repeating boring drum sounds. Why?! And who's waiting for side C?! 18 minutes of boring sounds that's been done for over 50 years already in a much much more fashion, and here there's no drama in what you hear, no theme or tension to be found.
Waste of vinyl space! They should've kept it to single disc.

Crazy good cumbia music and danceble stuff. Especially 'El Toron Nato','Mi Porro Guarachino' and 'El Alegron' are boyond the possible. Amazing compositions, great arrangements, skilled musicians and wonderful sounds. A lot goes on in these highly enthousiastic preformed songs.

At least the first tune is African Vibration - Hinde / Safari. A true gem indeed.

It's a 33 RPM 10''. Quality is great.
Especially the Rugs side is very intense and well balanced between the vocals and the riddim.

I have the complete same issue! It absolutely sukks big time! If this is a bootleg it's the worst I've ever heard. Do not buy this crap. It does look like a bootleg indeed, because even before hearing this I notifed the fainted colors of the sleeve. Which happens with louzy scanners.
I orderd this via the biggest dealer in The Netherlands, Bertus. I'm going to contact them about this piece of ....

I have 11 vinyl releases from Brainfeeder, all in good quality pressings. But what could be different is that I'm in Europe. The Epic I've got has been pressed in the EU, probably at Record Industry in Haarlem. RI is the biggest factory in Europe.

Mista Savona, Sizzla - Born A King as reviewed by m3nn0

October 28, 2015
"Born A King", "Champion Sound"; Sizzla is magnificent at some tunes, but at too many tunes like "Set It Off" he f#cks it up completely. Lame lyrics that doesn't fit the energy of riddim. And he even can't keep his pace on that one. And, sadly, also that is classic Sizzla. The dumb way, amateuristic. Don't know how he went wrong for so long. Why at 39 yrs of age he keeps boasting these teenage lyrics as if he can't focus at bigger or higher topics. He doesn't sound as a father, leader, veteran. His timing distorts "Big Man Ting". His slackness doesn't sound honest no more, it has lost its impact, even from him. Then "Why Does The World Cry" shows his style depends too much on his licks and falsetto. Like too many tunes he has done the past 10 years. It doesn't show the great true singing he was once capable of. The production is up, Sizzla is lame, again, way too often.
A king has died, long time already.

Incredible beautiful songs. Especially "No Me Offendas" and "Pobre Guajiro" are highlights. Heartfelt, natural and a direct delivery. This is the original trio and they sound like the sweet harmony they are. Recommended!

Bullshit. That's only if the space on the record is fairly used as so. On this release it's still densed up to the outer space on the vinyl. 12"s use the space and leave space between the grooves and fill up the platter.
The theorie you're putting doesn't fit this release unfortunately.

14 yrs after its release it still sound heavy, furious, tribal and meditative. You hear the soundystem culture through and through. The vibes are extremely dense and packed. Masterful work! Shame Sugar B released only so little.

Only minor lines are visible. They don't show to have any information in them. But to be sure I put the needle in/on them, which felt a bit stupid. It would be cool, but it only made that terrible noise you'ld expect.

Small band playing very delicatly. They are simple songs, but nonetheless they all have a nice atmosphere. This record doesn't have a touristic approach, it all sounds down to earth. Yet skillfully.

Nice smooth roots reggae with an amazing tight band still sounding easy and loosely as can be. That's the power of the best reggae. Gregory breezin' on top with his distinctive voice and cool and catchy lyrics.
