Great vibes on this reggae track with a very timely message. "Without peace and love, this world will cease". Such true words. The well-arranged track has a slightly lengthy running time for radio, though it's message and sound is on point for both mainstream daytime & late night niche/specialist shows. Its well written with clear vocals. Quality stuff from the UK. I'm looking forward to hearing more. ”
