Joe Higgs' follow up to the classic Life of Contradiction album, 1979's Unity is Power is a mellower set of tracks and the song writing is as clear and as lucid as ever. Possibly reggae musics most accomplished artist and certainly one of its most talented musicians, Higgs glides through a self produced set here that is as stylishly diverse as it is deferential. Standouts include "Devotion," "Love Can't Be Wrong," "Think of the Moment" and "Sons of Garvey." "I like phrasing my voice like an instrument," Higgs said. "I love jazz. People will always be ahead of people. Some walk, some run, some creep. I'm not concerned about success. Music is my teacher. But it's not good to be ahead of time, because life is a progression."
