ANSLOM'S NEW ALBUM: NO APOLOGIES TO CORRUPT POLITICANS

Anslom's latest is the best reggae album produced by a Papua New Guinean artist so far.
The rhymes in the toasts are authentic, natural and and executed with perfect precision. The skanks are Jamaican heavy and addictive.

The brass, although, electronic have found their place in the songs. You can feel a bit of Toots and the Maytals in "Coconut Pine." But I reckon, his best work is the Dube inspired "Member" (you can't lie). This song makes no apologies for its hard hitting lyrics.

It doesn't hide behind the veil of poetry or sarcasm. It nails the issue of corruption and public theft smack bang in the face.

"Member,  you can't  lie to me. I know You've been cheating on me!
