Definitely ska!

I don't really listen to reggae and often think it's too overrated - the rhythm is too slow if you ask me.

Reggae, I really love ska though. I like that the genre adopted a lot of elements and themes of reggae and made a pretty rad genre out of it.

I think you may have your chronology a little backward there.

Sure it can - but not the reggae rhythm, if you ask me. I guess that's really a matter of taste.

UB40 are one of my most hated bands and I get what you mean when u mean smooth Reggae.

I do like some Lover's Rock but I know it is lover's rock and not Reggae.

Generally I always plump for Reggae with history, attitude and a raw sound that is it's purpose.

Reggae for me, I like the generally slower more laid back feel.

But not too much soul for me.
I am picky, yes.

I do like the first UB40 album. The rest is utter crap.
