Tim Armstrong: A Poet's Life
Buy! - (Hellcat)
The 1st solo album from the frontman for the LA punk band Rancid is a delightfully loose and scruffy take on the classic Jamaican sounds of ska, rock steady and early roots reggae. Accompanied by the Aggrolites, Armstrong hearkens back to classic British two-tone acts like the Specials and the Selector (along with the Clash's reggae efforts) for some of the most catchy and easily enjoyable songs of his career. 5/29/2007 - Don Yates
