Description

The Frightnrs escort Daptone into the world of long-playing reggae with both the sweetest and the roughest record of the decade. Crafted under the meticulous eye of black-belt reggae mastermind/producer Victor Axelrod (AKA Ticklah), Nothing More to Say is a rocksteady masterpiece the likes of which has not reared it's head since the golden era of Studio One. However, you'll find no imitation here - none of the faux-jamaican cliches of lesser reggae bands. Like all things Daptone, this record is above all soulful and honest.

Customer Reviews

Best reggae album in 30 years!Trust me on this: if the names of Jamaican producers Coxsone Dodd, Duke Reid, Bunny Striker Lee, Leslie Kong, Lee Scratch Perry and artists Slim Smith, Alton Ellis, The Paragons, The Termites, mean as much to you as they do to me, BUY THIS RECORD NOW! You ll be astounded (like I was) that this recording could have been made ANYWHERE BUT Jamaica in the late sixties, early seventies. Listen to any of the tracks on this record and then prepare to drop your jaw and scratch your head, when you discover that it was made in Brooklyn, by young, non-Jamaicans (w absolutely zero of the fake rasta affectation or phony patois, which makes the majority of U.S. domestic reggae, in my opinion, unlistenable).The singer is on par w any of the artists previously mentioned and the production by Sizzla is so true to the authentic sonic imprint of Studio One, Treasure Isle and Beverly imprints, that it defies imagination. The songs and arrangements are first rate, the performances, untouchable! The tragic passing of the group s lead singer, shortly before the album release, only makes it more essential and poignant! An instant classic!5Five Starsexcellent5Absolutely worth owningI didnt know what to expect when I purchased this album but I was not disappointed. The band is tight and the lead singer's voice is so full of emotion you don't want the album to end. This one was on repeat for a month!5Ain't nothing free, not even my free time!One of the best albums from start to finish. I listen to this every day and I can't get enough. I'm so sad I'll never get to see them perform. They're beyond underrated. I can't even choose a favorite song as every single one is amazing.5Buy this album!-Old school rocksteady, ska, and early reggae.Where do you start when rating an album which is the first and last studio album by the Frightnrs before the death of Dan Klein- their lead singer. Knowing the lead singer was dying, the band put this masterpiece together to reflect the Studio One and classic Jamaican records of the late 1960's and early 1970's. In the vein of early rocksteady musicians like Alton Ellis, the Heptones, the Melodians, the Ethiopians, and the Pioneers, the Frightnrs captured the mono vibes of studios in Jamaica when the 45rpm record was king. Barely able to sing due to his illness, the lead singer has left a masterpiece that will be his legacy. Hopefully the talented band will continue in the future, but I agree with the high ratings of this album which is a hidden treasure. Read the album reviews by NPR, The NY Times, and others and you will understand the excitement this album created. Get it while it is still in print and celebrate the memory of Dan Klein by skanking to this masterpieceThe sonics of this album are such that, if you close your eyes and listen to this on a proper stereo, you will be catapulted back to a time in early Jamaican music that is hard to capture in today's digital era. The songs are heartfelt and the band hits the perfect balance of bass, keyboards, guitar, and vocals to bring old school rocksteady to life.If you were not told otherwise, you'd think this album came from an era long ago instead of recent times.Hopefully the Frightnrs have more unreleased works and have new classic rocksteady music to come.5Four StarsNice4Five StarsGreat album, cool relaxed and retro sound.5Vinyl lovers dreamFast shipping. Awesome vinyl.5Five Starsa great album all around5Amazing Rocksteady album....In recent years there has been an strong retro trend in music and among the leaders of this movement is the New Jersey label Daptone Records who does soul and funk the old fashioned way it used to be made, organic and with real instruments. This is their first venture into Jamaican music and Rocksteady. Those of us who like labels like Studio One or Treasure Isle and artists like Alton Ellis or Paragons should check out The Frightnrs . They formed in 2010 and hails from Queens, NY and has been locally active ever since. They released an ep (and some tunes) prior to Nothing to say which is their first full length album and my introduction to the group.The album starts with All my tears a melancholic but energetic Rocksteady gem dealing with unlucky love. It s an amazing tune and it s clear we are dealing with something very special. The voices are as smooth and silky as can be and the musicianship is on top. More heartaches are servedon track 3, Must find a way , im getting such a strong Alton Ellis vibe from this album. If we skip a few (genius) tracks things get a bit more upbeat on Trouble in here which is a bit faster and has a rudebwoy vibe with it s non-descript threats of violence if someone does not get their act together.One of my favorites on here is Til then which serves us more pain and broken hearts over semi-melancholic vibes. If you are slow and has not noticed it by now, this albums main theme is unlucky love . If Slim Smith where alive he would be proud of their tunes of emotional pain even though they don t feel quite as dark as he does. Every song is not about broken hearts though, Hey brother (do unto others) offers a break from the pain and suffering. In a perfect world this would be the track that made it to Radio as it s a bit more lighthearted (without selling out) and has some very catchy organ play.All in all this is an amazing album, I know I said earlier that The Viceroys released the album of the year but after this HUGE album it s safe to say they share the first place with The Frightnrs , there is no way that anyone will top this album for the rest of the year. It s nice to see there is new bands going the traditional Jamaican route over a more punk oriented take on SKA and Rocksteady. Go and buy it NOW, that is an order!/[...]5
