Final Grade: B+/A-
Solid, solid album by The Budos Band. I was down to get with some Afro beat this week, and they did not disappoint. I think that it got a little monotonous at times. Grooves didn't change as often as I would have liked to, and all of the songs had a similar -what I would call - "spy feel" to them. But I dug it, so I'm really not complaining, just trying to be critical. Super solid horn section. Rhythm section was on point. This is just chillin music, and I am down with that! Definitely going to look into more of their stuff and try to catch them live if I get the chance. Overall, really good album by an awesome band.
