Ok, if you are a fan of Snoop Dog and his usual style of music - and you hate reggae - this is NOT for you. Move along, nothing to see here. Or hear here. But if, like me, you enjoy reggae then this album is a delight from start to finish. Delicious rhythms, catchy choruses and some wonderfully clever collaborations sees Mr Snoop heading in a whole new direction. An album with no 'parental guidance' warning sticker, just lovely fresh summery songs which just might lead Snoop-Dog fans prepared to give it a go to the more traditional masters like Toots and Mytells and Bob Marley.
For hardcore Snoop Dog fans I suppose this is the equivalent of Tu-Pac and Biggie having a hug, pulling on their snowflake jumpers and recording an album of Christmas Classics like 'Chestnuts Roasting' complete with jingle bells and childrens choirs, because it's the stuff their Grannies like. But, IMO, any artist wanting to try a new direction should be encouraged. If, as I said, you cannot stand reggae from ANYONE, then avoid. But if you like it, this is a wonderful addition to any CD collection.
