I will admit I am fussy about what reggae I like and being a little deaf I cannot always hear the lyrics. I go for production, a full sound and want it danceable. I like reggae with a political message. There are a few 'peace and Love' style numbers here, one track with dub overtones to the singing but overall, rather weak. There is nothing on here that comes anywhere near Steel Pulse's 'We don't want no WMD' or the Ruts 'Soldier' (might not have recalled the title correctly on that one). For all I know the anti war lyrics might be great but for most tracks it is all a bit thin to play on a reggae night. For private listening it i probably fine for most. 6 tracks are okay to me so worth the price.
