Talking Dog (apparently from the chronicles of Narnia) is actually Pete Sharpe who plays reggae/dub on this, his first attempt. He also MCs with Secret Archives Of The Vatican in his spare time! On the positive side he is not afraid to engage his spiritual life with politics such as in the song "Chant Down Mugabay". Music is all played very well and varied in ideas. He says he wants to bridge the gap between the Christian and the rasta community this project I think will go some way to achieving that goal. The first half of the disc as the best but it tends to run out of ideas towards the end. On the negative side Pete’s voice does not come across as very confident and sounds a bit thin at times. But all in all a pretty good first attempt, a very enjoyable listen.
