    Produced by Rancid member and Hellcat Records owner Tim Armstrong, Jimmy Cliff's Sacred Fire EP is a wonderful jumble of time and place that ends much too soon.

    Cliff hasn't sounded this loose and giddy in years, and it's a thrill to find that side of him back in the music game.

    It just plain feels good to hear the elder statesman of reggae stay this playful and open to inspiration.

    The centerpiece, a righteous cover of the Clash's "Guns of Brixton" references Cliff's lead character, Ivan, from landmark reggae film The Harder They Come. A wicked dub, "Brixton Version," bookends the set beautifully.

    Buoyancy keeps "Sacred Fire" afloat.

    Sacred Fire succeeds more as a history lesson than as music.
