Ed Rome - Snapshot [CD - Review]

Ed Rome – Snapshot [CD – Review]. Snapshot by Ed Rome is the brilliant new 12 track studio album of original ska and reggae tunes. Ed is backed by a full band on this album and it kicks off with a chilled, laid back, catchy track called ‘Mess’, very similar to the Bad Manners sound on the song ‘Feel Like Jumping’ and sets the tone for the whole album.

Track two ‘The Hype’ takes us back to the 1960’s and that heavy skinhead reggae sound while the following track ‘Storm’ sounds like it could have been written by the legend that is Bob Marley.
