A consistently average album from Linval Thompson, Six Babylon is nonetheless a step up from I Love Marijuana in terms of the quality of both the music and the melodies.  The best track may be « Give Thanks and Praise, » featuring a classic organ and bass-heavy rhythm used in the ’90s for hits like Sanchez’ « Missing You. »  Also moderately musical are « Don’t Give Up, » with its driving bass and bluesy guitar, the rocking « Africa We Want To Go, » « No Confusion, No War, » and « Be Careful My Brother, » featuring a bass line reminiscent of Gregory Isaacs’ « Soon Forward. »
