Single "Who Knows," featuring Chronixx, is already a contender for best reggae track of the year, and breezy numbers like throwback "Sudden Flight" and the slow simmer of "Protection" deserve repeated plays. If there's a soggy spot, it would be "Love Gone Cold," a throwaway number that doesn't quite hang together musically or lyrically, but it's just a bump on an otherwise pleasing trip.
Overall, Ancient Future is aptly titled. This measured mix of modern-minded old school reggae hits the spot from start to finish. (Indiggnation Collective/Overstand Entertainment)
