AllMusic Review by

The follow-up to UB40's well-received studio album, WHO YOU FIGHTING FOR? the venerable British reggae group's 2007 offering to the ongoing British compilation series distills the group's influences into a thoroughly enjoyable mix. While none of the songs, hand-picked by the ensemble, should surprise fans of UB40, the top-notch selections (see funky-yet-thoughtful classics such as Burning Spear's "Marcus Garvey" and Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On") make for an excellent reggae/soul sampler.
