Quote: "Itís easy to understand why this album will appeal to folkies, rockers, reggae lovers, and just about everyone else."
By Nancy Dunham
Itís always interesting when musicians define their music as one genre or another.
Sometimes itís in keeping with standard classifications; many times itís not what
readily comes to mind for the listener. One case in point is Hannahís Field, which
bills its sound as gypsy reggae. The strong drums, including bongos, occasional
violin and upright bass, and various other instruments including pots and pans,
certainly hint toward what one might think of as gypsy music or reggae music.
To me, though, the music often highlighted by poetry, maracas and acoustic guitar
is not that easy to pigeonhole.
Warriors of Love is a collection of lovely music with a mix of various genres. Some harken back to pure country such as the title track. Other songs, such as "Angel Land," are just lovely, lilting numbers strung together on folk melodies played on acoustic strings, and highlighted by strong, clear vocals. "Puff Puff Give" is the standout track of the album, with a catchy chorus and reggae/Caribbean sound that stays in your head long after the song has ended.
Itís easy to understand why this album will appeal to folkies, rockers, reggae
lovers, and just about everyone else.
