“The deeply soulful sound emanating from The Green’s Hawai’i ’13 is absolutely everything you could ask for in a fifteen track stretch of authentic island style…It is culturally deep throughout, making for a vibrantly rich listen…If someone were to come to me and say pick one album to bring the Reggae/island sound back to the front of the pack, without batting an eye, I would thrust Hawai’i ’13 into their hands. The Green has received immense praise in the past and their latest release will only raise that bar again.” – Nanobot Rock
“The Green has quickly established themselves as one of reggae-rocks most versatile and talented acts.
