Just above his forehead, poet Mutabaruka has a strip of white hair that bisects his jet black locks. That is the only white thing about this revolutionary writer whose "Every Time I 'Ear Dis Sound" burst through the mellow reggae of the early '80s like a bullet from an AK-47. Performings sans shoes and shirt, Muta's deep voiced uncompromising rants make his a unique, almost fearsome figure whose melding of poetry and dub music make him seem akin to an Old Testament prophet saying "Listen -- or else!" ~ Roger Steffens, All Music Guide
