Realizing that their name and its negative connotations stood in direct contrast to their collective vow of P.M.A.--that's Positive Mental Attitude--Bad Brains reunited yet again in the late '90s under the banner of Soul Brains, a more positive-minded moniker. This live collection finds them doing what they do best--fusing American hardcore with reggae like nobody else on the planet. A BAD BRAINS REUNION is not their best recording (for that check out 1983's ROCK FOR LIGHT) but still no one else can claim "Pay to Cum," "I Against I," and "Attitude"--all revisited on this record--in their catalog.
