It's Sunday, or Monday evening, when everyone you know is too tired and thinking about the rest of the week: so you find yourself at home with the CD player and a copy of some listings magazine, staring at the stuff you could be doing. Living in the Flood? Yes, well it's like this… It's a happy, mellow, melodic mix of songs, all following one another in just the right order - pulling you along with it. The frustrating Monday becomes easier to live.

Religion. Love. Peace. Jah. Blighted futures; society; morality tales - Living in the Flood is a quiet reflection on life's issues. All sung in Andy's distinctively smooth, yet passionate style. The drugs, the gangs, the politics are all realised in the lyrics - but the raw and angry drugs, gangs and politics circa ragga purveyed by Buju Banton - it isn't: this is reggae as popularised in the west by the late, great, Bob Marley.

Starting out in the now infamous Studio One in Jamaica, Andy's collaborations have been many: Neneh Cherry, Sly & Robbie, the Mad Professor, and of course the collaboration for which he is best known - Massive Attack. So it comes as little surprise that Living in the Flood is released on Melankolic. Massive Attack's 3D, and former Clash front man Joe Strummer, grace the album with guest appearances.

For those familiar with Horace Andy and his mighty fine reggae tunes, this is another addition to his glowing set of credits. If all you possess in terms of reggae is the compulsory/obligatory Bob Marley - here's another gem to cherish in the cool, worldly status section of your collection. Sample it once, and it's guaranteed you'll want to pluck it from the World Music shelf at your Local Good Record Store - and take it home for a meaningful, ongoing relationship (after you pay for it of course).
