Ill Scarlett All Day With It

Ill Scarlett All Day With It

All Day With It sees Ill Scarlett stepping out from behind their "they sound like Sublime” status and throwing a bit more of their own style into the mix. However, problems arise when potentially good songs are ruined by over-production, most notably single "Nothing Special,” which places an obnoxious amount of reverb on the vocals and utilises that stupid digitalised delay. Ill Scarlett really are at their best when the fall back on their reggae roots, as on album closer "Danse Macabre,” and at their worst when they’re performing their more radio-friendly-sounding songs (the aforementioned single and "Life Of A Soldier”). It’s frustrating when a potentially good band starts to sound stale and watered-down due to their album’s production. (Sony BMG)
