Drunksouls' new Reggae-Fusion album Revolution is a unique work combining a number of elements to create interesting, new sounds. When I think Reggae, France is not the first country to come to mind, but Drunksouls makes it work.

The influences on Revolution are numerous. Splashes of Jazz ("The End"), Rap ("Revolution"), Rock ("Sullivan Story", "J'ai Fait un Reve (Radio edit)"), Funk ("Supermarketquot;, "Drifter Song"), and Latin ("Human Race", "Africa") sounds can be heard. Overall, this creates music that is much more melodic than typical Reggae; while this may put off some purists, but I find it to be a nice change of pace.

Likewise, the instruments used are highly varied between tracks. Piano, brass instruments, drums, electric guitar, sysnthesizer, vocals, and others make an appearance. Sysnthesized sounds really surprised me as I normally think of Reggae as being more organic, but its use feels natural. It is interesting to hear how the instruments are slipped in. For instance, the very typical Reggae sounding "The Fall", replaces some of the more statndard instuments with brass and keyboards while achieving the same style.

With its diverse influences, Revolution would be a welcome addition to any music collection.
