3 stars Politically active for sure but with that one would have expected a harder edge to it maybe.I find the first four songs very mundane and bland and sadly MMEB did not do well with Police's ' Demolition Man' nor the legendary Bob Marley's ' Redemption song'. However the Africa suite and ' Brother and sisters of azania' are great and details the segregation of a people very well in terms of enforced ' homelands' or ' bantustans'. It sadly portrays what the horrendous aparheid regime was doing to a majority force. It still though was not hard edged or millitant enough for me. I know cos I was living in Afrika de Suid at the time!
