Myth of the Machine Review

by Andrew Hamilton

A top homegrown reggae group with a smooth sound that uses draping horn fills as wallpaper, this all white band includes only one member of African descent, yet they exude authenticity. From the opener "Step Back" to the elastic "Slinky," the plodding "Destiny," and the rootsy remake of War's "Why Can't We Be Friends?" the tracks hook listeners. Greg Schnetz's rhythm guitar rules on "No One Can Say," a hypnotic piece of social commentary. Female voices sweeten two strong selections: "Man of Woe," and "Subject to Change." Inka Inka's broad sound reaches out easily to a wide audience.
