A good time with Super Tough.

Super Though IISuper Tough is the brainchild of California-based veteran musicians Wally Sound and Bruce Benjamin. In 2007 they dropped their debut album, a set that featured several Jamaican and local singers, for example Al PanchoRankin Scroo and Tony Moses.

It has taken seven years for the follow-up, which was released a few weeks ago.Super Tough II collects vocal cuts and dub versions and features collaborations with Earl ZeroLymie MurrayTony MosesToussaint the LiberatorGina Rene and X-Factor finalist Chris Rene.

Super Tough II is not the usual reggae album and offers rich influences from 60s soul and early funk. It’s non-traditional reggae with a twist. Just listen to album opener and feet stomper Take the Money and Run from Toussaint the Liberator, where his deep soul voice battles the raw drums, bass and guitar. Or Gina Rene’s smooth doo-woper Baby It’s You, a song that resembles George Michael's top selling single Faith.

This album is rough, rugged and it definitely sounds like they had a very good time when making it.
