I like the song, and I thank you for introducing me to this band.
Is it 'progressive', compared to a Jamaican band with a brass section? Is the drummer even playing reggae? To me, it's a high quality pop song with very definite reggae influences.
I agree somewhat, reggae influenced definitely, and although this particular song might sound like pop, the genre is broader than pop. Progressive because the genre transcends reggae by incorporating rock, rap, ska, and “atmospheric” elements in various proportions depending on the band and the era. Although this particular band is from Georgia, roots are mostly Californian, seeded by such bands as 311 and sublime which carried a strong reggae influence. But it goes even farther back than that with ska-influenced efforts by British bands such as Madness, and their song “one step beyond”.
other bands are Stick Figure, Rebelution, and Pepper.
I love steel pulse, but I would definitely call it rather pure than progressive
Blackout JA is probably my fave current reggae
Burro Banton is excellent hardcore Reggae
I really enjoyed that @StratMike10 thanks for posting.
It sounded like a well rehearsed and arranged reggae song to me. It had soul.
My favourite reggae band of all time is Matumbi....
My favourite reggae song of all time is Babylon’s Burning....
Maybe now, but in 1984 it seemed pretty "new".
