Electric Avenue

DaFruz

The volume is so low. This album desperately needs to be remastered.

I loved this album when it first came out, lost it in a move and have never seen it again. It's a classic reggae crossover, timeless and well worth the download. You won't be disappointed

They Say All Music Guide

Eddy Grant’s most popular album, 1982′s Killer on the Rampage, was an international hit, slaying its way into the Top Ten in the U.S. The album spun off the smash hit “Electric Avenue,” while two further tracks — “I Don’t Wanna Dance” and “War Party” — also hit in the U.K., with the former topping the British chart. Surprising considering its success, the self-composed, performed, and produced album is not far removed from Grant’s previous efforts; it’s just a little slicker, but still as musically adventurous. The mighty “Electric Avenue” is an almost primal slab of funk punctuated by a pumping beat and percolating synthesizer. “Funky Rock’N'Roll” headed more toward rock while tossing in a solid dance beat, while the tough “War Party” melded together funk and deep roots. Generous helpings of pop are lavished across the rest of the record, foamy concoctions of strong synth beats and bright melodies, all spiced with smatterings of rock, funk, and wave. For a single, shining moment, Grant was at one with the entire music continuum, creating a nigh on perfect hybrid twining together music’s strongest strands. From the hippest discos to the funkiest inner-city clubs, into the rock stadiums and out to the Latin quarter, Killer on the Rampage danced on a pinhead where all genres intersected. It was a magical feat never to be repeated, but brilliant while it lasted. – Jo-Ann Greene
