    I'm a big fan of Franti's and, having seen Franti and Spearhead live in Quebec in 2004, where they mesmerized a small crowd in the pouring rain, I have wanted to hear more and more. Chocolate Supahighway was very good and unconventional. Everyone Loves Music was more accessible to the mainstream, with beautiful songs.

Chocolate Supahighway was very good and unconventional. Everyone Loves Music was more accessible to the mainstream, with beautiful songs. When I bought Yell Fire, I was blown away by the first two songs but, after that, I thought it was very average. While I applaud the message, I think Michael needs to step to the next level musically. There is no doubt he can do it for I believe that his time has yet to come in the annals of music history. He is, in many ways, the conscience of America. Expand

    Un disco favoloso, un pò più pop dei precedenti ma testi al di sopra della media dei cantautori di protesta e una sezione ritmica decisamente buona.

    Awesome CD! I stumbled across Franti & Spearhead one night while flipping and decided to buy the CD. From the first song I was blown away. This is mind blowing new music for the 21st century. And you heard that from an original Woodstocker.

    This album is refreshingly uplifting, in spite of its heavy content and message. It is a beautiful soundtrack for all joyful warriors of peace.

    not a 10, as this stuff is still stronger delivered during one of thier legendary live shows. musically its not as cohesive as stay human, but it packs a punch nontheless. the songwriting can be spotty in parts, but is strong as steel in most instances. people who loved living with war by neil young should take note... here is an lp of songs with the courage to call for the troops to come not a 10, as this stuff is still stronger delivered during one of thier legendary live shows. musically its not as cohesive as stay human, but it packs a punch nontheless. the songwriting can be spotty in parts, but is strong as steel in most instances. people who loved living with war by neil young should take note... here is an lp of songs with the courage to call for the troops to come home and also to find hope in our future. blessed are the peacemakers.

  1. Franti's brain-stimulating songwriting rises to a new level of proficiency here.
  2. It's easily Franti's best album yet.
  3. [Franti's] ambitions pay off on this strapping, if sprawling, collection.
