As the Mystic Revealers' second CD, Space and Time features more up tempo tunes and more big names than their debut, Jah Works,but this doesn't necessarily make for a better album. Despite the presence of the legendary Sly and Robbie and even conscious DJ Luciano on backing vocals, this album fails to make a strong impression. Save for the hauntingly beautiful melody of Righteous and the rolling groove of I and I, nothing stands out on Space and Time. Indeed, a few tunes such as I Believe In Love and January To December even display a slightly pop-flavored sound. This is not a bad album, the musicianship is solid and the lyrics are mostly enlightening, it just doesn't live up to the high expectations that the Mystic Revealers created with their debut.
