“Morgan Heritage have proved that they are not shy to express themselves with their loud approach to this album.

This is probably why it has been featured in the top spot on the US iTunes Reggae Chart. Let’s take a look at some of the tracks. The album opens with the title track, ‘Strictly Roots’. Straight

Jamaican-born ensemble Morgan Heritage has unearthed a way to infuse the sounds of pop, rock, country, R&B, and hip-hop music into their brand of reggae that they call “Rockaz.” Morgan Heritage’s name is duly cemented in the history of reggae and music as a whole, as critics, fans, and music lovers have anxiously awaited this new release. In the wake of their historic Grammy win for Best Reggae Album as the producer and artist of “Strictly Roots,” the culture-driven pop-reggae five-piece has managed to deliver yet another quality album, Avrakedabra.

Nach dem ausgezeichneten „Strictly Roots“-Album (wir berichteten) erscheint nun mit „Avrakedabra“ auf eigenem Label CTBS Music Group der neue Longplayer der Morgans, welcher einmal mehr und ganz typisch für Morgan Heritage die Möglichkeiten gegenwärtiger, breitentauglicher Reggae-Gangarten aufzeigt.

Morgan Heritage took home the Grammy last year for the year’s best new reggae album.  Listening through the 13-song record, it is no surprise why the album took the award in the noted category.  The songs’ musical arrangements are anything but strictly roots.  Sure, there are plenty of throwbacks to reggae’s roots in that record, but there are also plenty of more modern influences present throughout the record.  That is one of the aspects that make the album’s recent re-issue stand

Morgan Heritage releases a new music video today, called “Reggae Night.” The song is from Morgan Heritage’s latest hit album Avrakedabra. Morgan Heritage has it going on in huge dollops! The melodic flow and pulsing muscular rhythm of “Reggae Night” are positively addictive. The sublime vocals sparkle with light and the harmonies are delicious. Whatever you do, don’t miss “Reggae Night.” It’s beau coup yazum!
