    Some bands do a good job of busting out of their genre to record completely different music, but UB40 is not one of them. A reggae band doing country simply does not work. Avoid

    This is a failure for a die hard fan like me. The album has lost the authentic grooves, its more on the country music concept than raggae music. So disappointing that they themselves didnt realise that UB40 is pure raggae band not 'Country Mixed Raggae' band. I know its a tribute to country music but the hypnotic raggae sound is gone. The album should be rename as "Getting Over TheThis is a failure for a die hard fan like me. The album has lost the authentic grooves, its more on the country music concept than raggae music.

    I liked! I don't knew this band and it was a while ago that I don't hear anything different. Listening to this album brought me a nostalgia, it may seem a little exaggerated, but it reminded me of Disney's productions when they focus on Africa or any kind of plot that involves something tribal. For sure this band gonna be present in my playlist.

    They're doing nothing radical, but the band, now in their 35th year of playing together, are tight and the results pleasing. [Oct 2013, p.96]
  2. It all hangs together quite nicely if, as ever, rather uninvolvingly.

    Lead singer Duncan Campbell does a fine job on his second album after the departure of his brother Ali, and with inspired song choices meeting an inspired band, Getting Over the Storm doesn't come off as a gimmick but a gift.
