Timeless chugging rock rhythms, with a little bit of a Rolling Stones groove, kick off this album with 'The Betrayal Of The Son Of Man' and considering the limitations of the production it's pretty effective. When Rolland gets to acoustic driven ballads like 'Don't Hold On' the effect is lessened. Another problem is that famed reggae drummer T Pot's kit is rather undermixed. But there's enough passion and grit on the best songs here to show that Rolland is a gifted grassroots muso. Hopeful this bright and breezy release is the start of bigger and better things.

He is actually one of the best producers in the UK now. How on earth did he do that one?

I heard this album a few months back.. Ws ok for the era. But i heard that he is now a hip hop producer and artist. hah I think its funny how someone can go from one genre to another just like that . lol
