The Specials - More Specials

More Specials is the second album released by the 1980's 2 tone band The Specials. This album though often overlooked by many contains some great tracks from a cover of the classic Enjoy Yourself (It's Later Than You Think) to Rat Race which comments on the often dull and fruitless work environment of the typical person. Personal favorites on this album are Stereotype and International Jet Set. Stereotype has a very dark and eerie sound and was written encouraging youth to not fall prey to the pressures of drug use. International Jet Set a mostly instrumental song was supposedly written by the band after their less than successful first US tour. Overall this is a great album that I would really recommend to anyone who enjoys really anything from ska to jazz and I might even say rock and pop music.
