Consumer Guide Reviews:

Missionaries Moving [Island, 1988]
"Intellectual terrorism" by "Rock Box" out of Sly & Robbie's Rhythm Killers, this Rammellzee-Laswell metal-rap is heaviest when it's funkiest and can move the crowd just by moving its ass. Slows down on the rhythm dirge "Go Down! Now Take Your Balls!," which is Laswell's indulgence, and comes to a virtual halt on the wacko lecture "Lecture," which is Rammellzee's. B+
