"Formed in the early 80s by On-U head man Adrian Sherwood and percussionist Bonjo Iyabinghi Noah, African Head Charge have established a unique reputation over the years for producing exceptionally beautiful and deeply strange music. This is their first release since 2005's 'Visions Of A Psychedelic Africa' and finds Bonjo once again joining forces with long time On-U stable-mates Skip McDonald, Crocodile, and The Crispy Horns, together with contributions from legendary bassist George Oban, Dancehall pioneer Jazzwad and electronic wizard Adamski. All the elements of a classic African Head Charge album are present; a triumphant mix of dub, psychedelia, trance, afro and tribal rhythms that have given them their own unique place in contemporary music."

" African Head Charge conjure up loping percussion, spiced with tribal chants and wibbly electronic noises, occasionally topped off with... Rastafarian vocals. Particularly noteworthy is the sampled table-tennis percussion on "The Best Way", the Valium Afro-funk of "This and That and the Other", the clanging plangent guitar on "Timpanya" and a looping sample that states, "Undulating toatonal music while experiencing way out trances". Where some bands strive self-consciously and struggle hard to achieve a gumbo of global sonic influences and wear their ganja affections heavily, AHC just get on with it and remain remarkably effective."
