"Geffery Morgan" was the follow-up to UB40's breakthrough album "Labour of Love". It had favorable sales, but I think it was a disappointment to those buyers looking for another "Red Red Wine". As such, its been sort of an overlooked release, sandwiched between UB40's purer reggae/dub releases earlier in their career and the less-adventurous radio-friendly "reggae karaoke" they seem to be into these days. But "Geffery Morgan" is one of the great UB40 albums, with some of the best original material they ever did. The opening trio of tunes, "Riddle Me", "As Always You Were Wrong Again" and "If It Happens Again" are incredibly strong, and set the tone of quality for the rest of the album. Other highlights include the beautiful "Seasons", the jazzy experimental "the Pillow", the superb "I'm Not Fooled So Easily", and one of their great closers "You Eyes Were Open". This is truly UB40's transitional album. While the reggae groove is still strong, in many songs ("Riddle Me", "You're Not An Army") you can sense their movement to the mainstream. Note that their next U.S. release, "Little Baggariddim" featured their Top 40 remake of "I Got You Babe", followed by the "Rat In The Kitchen" album, full of watered-down reggae hits. If you're looking for the last, best representation of UB40 as accessable but authentic REGGAE BAND, this album is highly recommended.

Fans of UB40 may realize the word "UB40" itself should be a type of reggae because of the band's uniqueness. This uniqueness is written all over this album, the mellow voice of Ali Cambell, the suttle beats, and the all-round originality. This is great reggae CD, all UB40 fans must get this.

A UB40 album that never got its due . . . Nov. 26 2002

Recently bought, what a surprise! Oct. 20 2004
By Julio Marchena - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It's incredible, UB40 never finishes to surprise me. Last week I bought this album, basically motivated for a presentation alive of "Riddle Me" and "You Are Not An Army" I could watch.

What a nice time I got when listen to for first time "As Always You Were Wrong Again" and "I'm Not Fooled So Easily", really good songs touched with the base line of Earl "Mr. Boostman" Falconer. The lyrics are surrounded of politics that reflects the discomfort they felt with Madam Medussas's goverment and the circustances of the time.

39:34 minutes of deep Reggae, DUB and Ska with the incomparable UB40 styleeeeee.

My favorite UB40 album June 8 2006
By Tell It Like It Is - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I agree with other reviewers that this is a great album that gets overlooked. I have "Riddle Me" and "I'm Not Fooled" on 12" long play vinyl singles. Its great to have a digital music copy now. For roots reggae purists, UB40 did become too commercial as they went on, as did many bands of the era. This album still had some real reggae sound and hadn't totally crossed over yet. Its totally worth having in your classic reggae collection. There are a few songs that are more like African jazz, but overall, this is a reggae album.
Definitely a 4+ Oct. 8 2008

If you have read my other UB40 album reviews then you know I come at this as an interested fan that has only really recently discovered the depth of this band. So my review may be more relevant to you if you are a fellow neophyte to UB40. This is good stuff. You should have it - especially if you have bought others and your appetite is still not sated. You will like this album. This album represents what I and you - the new, happenstance UB40 fan are looking for. Solid start to finish like Present Arms. The tracks that you'll keep going back to once the rythms get in your head after the first listening: "As Always You Were Wrong Again", "If It Happens Again", "You're Not An Army" and "Seasons".
Not UB40's Best.... Oct. 23 2014
By Carmen Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This wasn't my favorite UB40 album. UB40 has to be one of my favorite bands ever. I love their music, but this album just didn't do it for me. If you are looking for really good reggae songs, don't get this album, get another UB40 like Rat in the Kitchen or any of the Labour of Love albums. Present Arms was really great too. I basically bought this album just so I could say I have all of their albums, not so much for the music content. I guess every great band has one or two duds. This happens to be UB40's. Sorry....I love them though!
