Winner of the 2010 NAACP Image Award for "outstanding World Music Album".


On "Chrome," Sila turns in his most intriguing vocal performance, as his high-pitched screams ("I'm freaking OUT!") complement and punctuate the cool, hepcat flow of the melody. Think of the well-constructed yet laid-back neo-soul of rock quintet Townhall, with James Brown and Prince trading improvisations over the top."-Jambase

"The best of all possible worlds in World Music terms: uptempo, polyrhythmic, socially conscious (but not pedantic), strikingly melodic, and eminently danceable." - San Francisco Bay Guardian
