"Bursting through in a rhythmic frenzy that inspires a level of energetic dancing worthy of a WOMADelaide performance comes the title track, ‘Gentle Warrior.’ Its contagious Afrobeat grooves emanate a feeling of partying in the name of positivity. Across the albums twelve tracks there are almost no weak points, as each song highlights a new musical mastery."

"Local Revolution’s debut album is a demonstration of reggae funk mastery, and will keep you moving from the first note of its opening title track. Whether bouncing to the textbook skank of Up And Down, or grooving to the upbeat Apartheid, this record is a just-press-play party. Another positive aspect is how directly this record plays… to the ear, it’s the sound of a well-oiled machine just knocking out tracks in front of microphones, like a live show captured in a studio, with a very light touch in terms of mixing; there’s no filter or studio magic here, just musical magic, which is as it should be."

"It is impossible to not be sucked in to the positivity, good vibes and groovy rhythms that emanate from every track on the album."
