It's only with the third track, “King Of Illusion”, that you finally notice that the foundation of this album is actually reggae. The trumpet of Sean Corby and the offbeat-played keys by Wobble himself make slight references to the bygone sound of Studio One. The core part of this masterpiece is of course the title track “Inspiration”. Alex McGowan caps it all off with his very distinctive guitar playing and the thriftily applied Fender Rhodes add extra virtuosity to the already very complex arrangement. “Floating On High”, sings PJ Higgins and means the transcendence you achieve when you addict yourself to all your inspirations and consider yourself as an aggregate of them. On “What Have I Become” there's no holding back anymore though and she catches fire delivering a performance that goes right through you. The drums and percussion played by Marc Layton- Bennett add a heavy dose of voodoo to the mix.
All in all, this is a well-rounded package trying to be a classic reggae album but overstating the case by turning out to be much more than that. If PJ Higgins and Jah Wobble were new kids on the block, they'd be a pair to keep an eye on. Keeping an ear to the ground doesn't hurt though
