Vaughn Benjamin offered up a superbly raw and stripped back sound here with this hard to define album. It is one he honed over more than a few decades with the St. Croix based band Midnite and countless recordings such as the 2014 album of the year Beauty For Ashes. Sadly, he passed in 2019 but had already put out an incredible 70 albums by then, and this one with its rich musicianship, deep moods and textured songwriting is right up there with the best of them. It has an unwavering devotion to Rastafarai and the soulful melodies surely heal.
