google "The Ohms" they are a phenominal Reggae/Rock/Dancehall/Ska band from Cincinnati Ohio and they are on the rise.

they have played with Steel Pulse, SOJA, Pato Banton and many more and their vocals and message is very positive and uplifting

for fans of: Sublime, Slighty Stoopid, Pepper, Rebelution, SOJA, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Damian Marley, Steel Pulse, Operation Ivy, The Pilfers....ect

Interesting Note Johnny... I was just thinking about Handworth Revolution album while flicking through this thread as apart from owning said album I have nothing else by Steel Pulse. TBH I've not heard any of the other albums in actual fact.

Your mention of a "Soulful Reggae album is spot on IMO as the 'Spanish' feel of track 'Prediction' is just somewhere out of this world and one of the most inventive takes on Reggae I've ever heard. I must try and listen to some other Steel Pulse albums and see if my opinion differs from your own recollections.

*Off to drop Side one of Handsworth Revolution!

Only a month late to this post, but hey...

As far as their best albums go - True Democracy > Handsworth Revolution > Tribute To the Martyrs

Babylon the Bandit and Earth Crisis are good albums too, but have a bit too much of the old overproduced shine to them.

And African Holocaust, their last album to date, it very good stuff too. A choice track from it for anyone curious enough;

I've only heard Roller Blades by them; that's a damn good song though. I'll download some of these comps you guys put together and get back to you in a bit. Thanks!

I can see where some would consider Earth Crisis overproduced, but i just find it polished. I actually prefer it to Handsworth and True Democracy. I really like both albums listed but prefer Earth Crisis. I think Bodyguard and Sitting on a throne of gold are really tight reggae songs.

They used to tour a lot and Ive seen them many times, always a good show - as has been said before they deserve more credit than they got and waaaaaay better than UB40

Steel Pulse are definitely one of my favorites . I got to see them on the Sun Splash tour a number of years ago down here in Florida . They were great live . I still have some worn down cassettes from the late eighties that I used to play all the time in my school days
