CD REVIEW: Iration "Time Bomb"

Reggae bands are a dime a dozen, so it takes being great to really make a name for yourselves in the world of domestic reggae. Iration have created an album that will solidify them as a force in the genre of alternative rock reggae music and now find themselves reaching for the same level as bands like Sublime, Slightly Stoopid, and O.A.R. The album's title track, if it gets a chance on radio, will skyrocket these guys to stardom because it's mellow reggae vibe and clever lyrics will have fans of any style of music bouncing, dancing, and singing along. Fans of everyone from Jack Johnson to Matisyahu to Vampire Weekend will all find some song on this album that they can get into. The band's energy, combined with their intense inherent love for the music, make each and every song on this album a standout. Iration are ready to join the likes of Rey Fresco and Dirty Heads as part of a new breed of alternative reggae rockers taking the airwaves by storm.
