This World / Pretty Looks [coll] – [Wackie's]

Bullwackie squeezes the soul on LeRoy Sibbles’ “This World”,
a tight little cornet intro, later trumpet and flute add a
sort of In Like Flint swagger, and Sibbles vocals scorch
with determination through the pain. He’s calling for action
and compassion, and he’s staking the endgame on the groove.
Fortunately, the simple bassline here is the sort of two-note
wonder that can indeed stave off catastrophe. Rock steadiest.
Ah then here come’s the dub, washing up at your feet at
first…guitar scrapeed with little abalone shells. And
yeah, why not a flute solo for coda/solace. The pain is gone,
but the bass line is going to live on. And on. And onward.

“This World” is sooooo good, I almost forget there is another
side to this. On the flip, it’s more of a rub-a-dub: a little
robot shuffle drum, R&B honey drip vox, a downright doo-woppy
cushion, and then we get the rasta regaling. S’alright if
you’re in love and stuff, me…I’m still savoring the pain of
“This World.” Soul-shakingly solid. -Thurston Hunger
