The album is very polished, and for my taste, I think the vocals are a little too processed throughout the album, which leads to somewhat of a similar coloration across the 15 songs. Thicker Than Blood is a great album which infuses so many elements of popular music to the Reggae Sound. There are also a ton of Hip-Hop beats and acoustic guitars which really makes sense for the above comparison. With so many catchy songs on the album I am a little surprised at the song lengths! The harmonies, especially in the vocals, are huge throughout the album and the musicianship is top notch. You can skip to the end and leave a response. Each star rating reflects their review of the album, not the band.

Sizzla joins Lovd Ones for My Lorda hip-hop groove of the type that he typically shines brightly on, and this is no exception. This song really resonated with me because of the recent World Cup in Brazil and the world seeing the controlled image of Brazil rather than the war that rages in the Favelas.
Showing his wide range, Sizzla brings it from low growling chanting, to falsetto singing, all in the same line. I love when legends from JA collaborate with the scene in the states, elevating this album with this collaboration. The Lovd Ones project is an eclectic set of tunes in a pop meets hip-hop meets West Coast meets East Coast style reggae style.
