Their second studio album "Back With A New Batch," which is available on Tripple Crown Records and Stubborn Records, is nothing short of a masterpiece. The album begins with the title track. Django toasts away like a madman with a mic. Next song "Pick Yourself Up" is a nice tune about picking yourself up when life gets hard. If you listen closely to the end of the song, you can hear Dicky Barret, of the Bosstones, singing in the background. "Tired Of Struggling" is one of my favorite SAS songs of all time, in fact Django still plays it live. "Lost Out Again" is a nice little song about a girl who cheats and lies, but this time her actions won't be excused. "Thankful" features Victor Ruggiero on vocals. "Struggling Version" is a nice reggae version of "Tired Of Struggling" featuring Jack Ruby Jr. doing some serious toasting. The album ends with an instrumental version of "Pick Yourself Up"
The Stubborn All-Stars are an amazing band, and are made up of some of the best musicians this side of Kingston. They have 3 albums and an EP under their belts, and there are rumors that they will be coming out with new stuff shortly. Get this album at any cost and sit back and enjoy!
