4.0 out of 5 stars "World a reggae music on yah..." 24 July 2011
Format:Audio CD
Trojan's latest dancehall reggae collection fully embraces the era's sound in all of it's hypnotic, throbbing glory; and successfully represents certain stylistic traits whilst blatantly ignoring others (not a single rub-a-dub deejay track?!).

The focus here is on the more 'commercial' elements of dancehall - the brightest and breeziest rhythms, soulful vocal melodies and "cheesy" love and relationship themed lyrics - thus strengthening the theory that with dancehall, reggae music completely cast aside all of the hardship, drama and tribulation of the 'roots' period for cheerier and more flippant concerns: namely dancing, girls and material wealth. Of course, such assumptions never tell the full story - spiritual and cultural themes did prevail throughout the era, and producers like Don Mais and Henry 'Junjo' Lawes produced deep and heavy rhythms with not an iota of commercial motivation.

Though first impressions suggest that this set is completely focussed lyrically on trivial 'boy-girl' affairs, there are actually a fair amount of more 'serious' topics covered also - Black Uhuru's "SENSIMELIA", Israel Vibration's "WHY YOU SO CRAVEN", Anthony Johnson's "GUN SHOT" and Triston Palmer's "PEACE AND LOVE IN THE GHETTO" are the most striking cultural commentaries here; though the absence of Rastafarian themes is felt strongly and the overall balance is still in favour of the love songs.

Another bias is revealed in the tracklisting with the glut of Sly & Robbie productions featured.
