PRESS ON THRILLAH
"Thrillah is an imaginative tribute, and hands down, ESAS’ best album since 2003’s stellar Dub Side of the Moon."
"Covering a song in a different genre can be gimmicky, as is the case with this Brooklyn reggae outfit’s take on Michael Jackson’s classic (from “Easy Star’s Thrillah,” an all-covers album). Here however, it just happens to be a good gimmick, put over a spongy groove and dancehall giant Luciano’s simmering, committed vocal."
- New York Post
"(Thrillah) is tasteful and eloquent, avoiding modern reggae's trappings..honors the King of Pop in an entirely unforeseen way."
- – The Huffington Post
"Thrillah is so fun and danceable that you might be missing the slick arrangements and songwriting for the overall feel. But the All-Stars are talented musicians mixed and produced super well. This album sounds excellent."
- Angelica Music
"…diverse, fun, and very welcome return to form…There's plenty of life left in this formula."
- All Music Guide
"…the album continues the group’s streak as one of the most innovative cover groups out."
"There’s some great stuff here – so much so that, for me, it doesn’t matter how it originated."
