Decent but not essential, Iron Storm falls short of the type of excellence one associates with Black Uhuru. This isn't a bad album by any means, but it's less than a listener expects from the original lineup of Don Carlos, Garth Dennis and Duckie Simpson. The CD's more memorable cuts include "Tip Of The Iceberg" (which boasts a poignant rap by distinguished guest Ice-T), the painfully honest "Bloodshed" and the moving title song. But for all its strong points, Iron Storm is a CD that only completists and the more devoted Uhuru fans should acquire. For novices, Chill Out or Red would be a better place to start.
