"One of the best ever roots albums. These sounds were everywhere when released,and crossed over making this album popular with dreads and punks alike. Championed by john Peel and part of the soundtrack to 1977 if you wernt there then get this to get da flava,if you were then get it to remember. The best in roots harmonies."
"I have listened to the original Two Sevens Clash CD a whole lot and didn't know if buying a new version would be worth the money. First off, the remastering of the CD is wonderful and worth the price alone, even if you already own the original. Second, the additional five songs are absolutely brilliant and sound awesome. I-Roy is in top form on the two tracks he appears on. Joseph Hill and company are so good that it is hard to put into words. This is reggae at its best. It's not hard to understand why the great Bob Nesta Marley had a lot of admiration for the music of Culture. This release of Two Sevens Clash is an essential album by an essential reggae group."
"OK, I haven't bought the new release of Two Sevens Clash, but I like owned the original Ja. LP and the earlier CD and will buy this one because it is like the finest reggae album except maybe Blackheart Man (Bunny) or East of the River Nile (Augustus Pablo)--except buyer beware since the song Two Sevens Clash foretells the ending of the world on 7/7/77 and in case you haven't noticed this did not happen. This does lessen the impact of the song; on the other hand, you don't have to hide in your house on that day. I now own this 30th anniversary edition and am astonished. The songs are in a different order than on the earlier CD release, and amazingly it matters. The changed (I suspect, corrected) order of these songs tie the songs together thematically--this is actually a concept album and a good one!!! Wow! This is VERY rare in Roots reggae."
