Together We Stand musically presents to you, from the insight of our own living iconic legend Richie Spice, the love and togetherness of humanity, the protection of nature, the love and respect for women, and advocating for the youths through social welfare and the true teachings of Jah.
Indeed, Richie Spice has never ceased, over the years, to lift the banner for the freeing of the herb (Ganja) and even now that the herb is taking world center stage in medicine, recreation and wealth the singer is still holding the torch.
The album opens with the atmospheric, spoken word envibed 'Blessings (The Album Intro)' and then bleeds seamlessly into the invigorating title track 'Together We Stand,' the islands hipsway of 'Di Dub Dance' and then both the euphoric 'Eyes To See The World' and the magnificently sunny disposition and ambiance of 'Beautiful Life' (feat. Kathryn Aria).
Next up is the reggae groove of 'California' which is followed by the dancehall vibe of 'Valley of Jehoshaphat (Red Hot),' the methodical 'I Use The Herbs,' and then the hip-pop of 'Dabbin'' and one of my own personal favorites, the free flowing 'Unity We Need' (feat. Chronixx).
That's followed by the reggae bounce of 'Mother Nature,' which is backed by the thematic 'Murderer' (feat. Dre Island), the gentle breeze of 'De Stress,' the rhythmic melodies of 'There's A Way (Remix),' coming to a close on the one-two dub step of 'Put This In The Schools.'
