I would recommend this album to anyone, who is in the market for some good reagge music. I was once the proud owner of this album many years ago when it first came out, since then I have upgraded my Aswad collection to their Anthology and other albums. This is definetly the album that put Aswad on the map.I personally think this album brought out the personal best of Aswad, with such songs as "Don't turn around & Feelings". I have been a fan of the group for many years, and I still continue to support them and their efforts. Personally, I think that they are one of the best bands to come out of Great Britain, along with UB40 & of course International Singer Maxi Priest. Because of Aswad & UB40 they paved the way for other groups and singers (Musical Youth). Thank you for all your years of music,that you have so generously given to us throughout the years. Good Luck! (Brinsley, Drummie & Angus) Love You!

"Distant Thunder" is only distinguishable in that the crossover hit "Don't Turn Around" (later covered by the inane Ace of Base)is on it.
In terms of a pure reggae album, this lp by no means qualifies. Indeed, the funk/soul elements that now dominate Aswad's music are front and center on this album, though reggae elements permeate the album, as well as some of its messages on tracks like the powerful "Set Them Free."
Fans of more traditional reggae will likely cringe at this album, as I did when I first heard it. Fret not- Aswad made credible reggae lps. Look out for their "Hulet" and "To the Top" lps for a better look at their reggae material.
As a crossover lp, this cd comes recommended, but fans of more pure reggae should look elsewhere for their fix.

I have been looking for this CD for some time, since I damaged the tape which I bought brand new. It is a very good Reggae album, and I highly recommend it for purchase still, yes, even after all these years!! Actually, it is my favorite from Aswad.

HASH(0xa7c39d98) out of 5 stars Great album - I had it years ago on vinyl ... March 9 2016
By Dave Lowthian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Great album - I had it years ago on vinyl and loved it. Unfortunately I bought this CD "used" under the guise that it was in "good shape" - only 2 or 3 songs play before the skipping starts. Nobody even cleaned-it-up so it even looked acceptable. The insert is totally water damaged and there was "crud" on the top of the disc and the underside surface was/is totally scratched. I'm a collector - NEVER AGAIN!

Great deal and thankful I was able to find this CD. We had the cassette and it broke. We always listen to this when traveling
