SOJA put on a great show for Pittsburgh last night at The Rex. As if a great reggae show in December wasn’t enough, they even practically gave away their new album Born In Babylon. At the end of the show they announced a pay-what-you-will price for anyone who wanted to grab it. I think the new album is definitely their best stuff yet. It presents a more polished and mature sound from their previous tracks, which is also evident in their tight live performances. SOJA’s earlier albums also lacked the horn section that has really put them over the top. It adds a fully layered sound that complements the tight reggae guitar, bass and keyboard riffs. And Jacob’s unmistakable voice adds a certain uniqueness that sets them apart from being just another reggae band. This was my third SOJA experience, and I can’t wait to see them again!
