Aswad: Too Wicked (Mango LP/Cassette/CD)
Dele Fadele, New Musical Express, 22 September 1990
ANYONE FAMILIAR with the sussed militancy of Aswad's early 'Three Babylon' period would never have expected them to take an easy option and 'go commercial'. But ever since the runaway chart success of 'Don't Turn Around' they've been floundering in a musical cul-de-sac, making dull, calculated fodder for CD enthusiasts and the furry dice brigade. So it was with pleasure that I realised they could still return to their reggae roots and put all that shameless opportunism behind them.
