“The contrasts and the traditions of Ancient Power are what make it such an exciting album. If you are interested in what reggae is sounding like in the present, then this is a great place to start. It will be intriguing to see where Meta & the Cornerstones go next.” Joe Wilcock, Meta & The Cornerstones – Ancient Power.
“Ancient Power’ is solid and bright and manages to balance influences from the Caribbean, the U.S., the Middle East and Africa. Highlights include the upbeat Bound to Glory with a rocking slide guitar, the pumping Damian Marley combination Beloved Africa and the mystic, nyabinghi-inspired title track, definitely one of the fiercest and greatest single tunes this year. A great set that manages to excel the debut album.” Erik Magni, Ancient Power – solid roots reggae grooves from Meta & The Cornerstones.
“When you first meet Meta, of Meta and the Cornerstones, he emits pure musical talent and a humble spirit in his 6.3ft slim frame. Then, when you meet the band members of the Cornerstones you realize that you are in the presence of a group that is about to change the dynamic of Reggae music forever.” liltiger, SLF’s DJ Lil Tiger with DRM and Meta and the Cornerstones @ Dubwise Session 24.
