Mine de rien, UB 40 continue son petit bonhomme de chemin – façon de parler ! Combien d'albums la formation emmené par Ali Campbell a-t-elle enregistrés depuis 1980 ? Beaucoup, tous faisant la part belle aux reprises œuvrant à la reconnaissance internationale de la musique jamaïcaine. Jamais leur succès, pourtant énorme, ne leur est monté à la tête, leur carrière étant simplement pavée d'incessantes références à Jimmy Cliff comme à Al Green. Au fil des ans, l'octette a continué de naviguer, bon gré, mal gré, sans prendre l'eau, le plus dignement possible même si l'engagement est désormais moindre qu'à l'époque où ils protestaient en chansons contre le chômage et le gouvernement de Margaret Thatcher – leur patronyme, UB 40, vient d'un formulaire d'inscription à l'ANPE anglaise. Seul concession d'ordre politico-humanitaire ici, "Cover Up", morceau qui donne son titre à l'album, commandé par les Nations-Unies afin de sensibiliser l'Afrique au SIDA. Le producteur de leurs meilleurs disques, Ray "Pablo" Falconer, est parti depuis plus de dix ans, et UB 40 ne s'autorise que peu d'écarts, comme si la révolution électronique n'avait jamais eu lieu ! Ni roots, ni évidemment d'avant-garde, Cover Up est un album grand public dont "Something More Than This" se détache toutefois. Il n'y a là rien qui soit à marquer d'une pierre blanche dans la saga du groupe, même si l'ensemble s'avère globalement plaisant. --Hervé Comte

I took a chance with this one since it was very [spendy] and I was dissapointed. First the jewel case was damaged however I was anxious to see if it was a good investment. Wisely they started off with "Rudie" but I feel that after that the music quailty fell off dramiticly. I reminded me of Ali Campbell's release "Big Love" with "Pay my Rent" being so true to form then. This group has so much talent I wish they'd stick with thier own members. Maybe I just getting old but Rap was a spin off af Reggae I with it didn't have to come back to it.

This is maybe their best work in a decade. I haven't been moved much since LOL II. Promises and Lies was very good but this CD is BETTER. Sticking to a truer Reggae sound the UB's have ignored clever sound effects and pop sounds on this CD. Not since their self-titled album has every track been this good. If you were as disappointed with LOL III as I was, GET THIS album. It completely redeems them. One question though, where is the U.S. release????
