Press for Reggae Mysteria:

"SoCal's 2000 Tons of TNT have dropped an exceedingly smart and powerful debut--Reggae Mysteria--that mixes the soulful/funky/latin dirty reggae of The Beatdown, The Caroloregians, and The Bullets with the revved up, rough-around-the-edges garage rock of old skool bands like The Fleshtones or The Lyres...You may not be familiar with the band, but 2000 Tons of TNT's Reggae Mysteria is an album all fans of ska and reggae should get to know--and will definitely come to treasure."
-Steve Shafer/The Duff Guide to Ska

"The band moves effortlessly—if frenetically—from the title track’s shuffling instrumental reggae, which would not feel out of place on a Trojan Records compilation, to “Shot in the Dark,” the raw stomp of which recalls UK garage band The Prisoners and ’60s mod/psych stormers The Creation. Elsewhere, organ-led instrumentals grind like the earliest days of Acid Jazz as purveyed by Prisoners alumni The James Taylor Quartet, while “Cleansing Sound” conjures ’80s garage soul outfit Makin’ Time."
-Dana Smart/Examiner

"The band has it’s pulse firmly pumping to early Reggae pioneers such as The Upsetters, Symarip, The Pioneers and labels such as Trojan and Pama as well as more modern masters such as The Aggrolites, The Revivers, The Impalers and The Delirians...The collection Reggae Mysteria includes 11 mostly instrumental tunes. There is enough variety in the compositions to make the album not feel forced or redundant",
-Jason Lawless/Lawless Street
