"... embraces electrified rock more than ever before ... finds Harper's acoustic strum doing battle with Zeppelin-esque bombast: a decidedly healthy tension ... Harper's most sonically varied release ... Harper's voice remains an amazing instrument, a raspy burr that dances in the chasm between Cat Stevens and Al Green."
- Rolling Stone

"... his remarkable third album ... proves he has never met a musical style he doesn't like. Rural blues, reggae, funk, folk, country: Harper's goal seems to be to master them all ... what keeps this musical mosaic together is Harper's pleasingly mellow vocal style ... (seemingly sincere) lyrics about lost love and spiritual longing ... Harper's impassioned artistry offers the perfect antidote to much of today's glib pop."
- People

Ben Harper's third release, 1997's The Will To Live, broadens his sound from the folk-inflected songs of his earlier work to include elements of funk, blues, reggae and rock, a recipe Harper would return to over the years. While not a major success in the US at the time, the album garnered good reviews and includes Harper's first UK charted single, Faded.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
