“Babar Luck is one of those idiosyncratic, enigmatic spirits & this, his seventh CD, finds his guitar and voice part of a new band, backed by bass, percussion & violin. The grouping seems to have energised him; the material is excellent, with some of the best, most incisive songs he’s written, and the aggregation truly sparks - think Joe Strummer and an acoustic Mescaleros. Vocally, Luck keeps getting better & better, and on this album he sings with emotion, compassion & real force. There are several outstanding cuts here, form the opener of Come Home to Easy Money, which connects the dots between politics & business, the ache of Die Free and Sing the Guns to Sleep, about the hope for peace from a soldier’s perspective. Reggae finds its way into things too, not only on World Citizen, but also on Gun Law, where at one point Luck almost sounds to be channelling Marley. Recorded live to analogue, this is a collection that marks out the band as something very special. ”
