A 5-star Reggae Album
on 14 February 2010
What can be said of this album except that every song shines with epic production, song-writing and pure reggae Irie vibes?
A highly individualistic artist, who's manner of song-writing and singing has classic written all over it. Not unlike his father in this respect. There's always a relaxed, swaying soulfulness to Stephen's voice, which at times can be raspy but sweet altogether.
The album overall is a great addition to anyone's collection, and is peppered with the sounds of Jamaican culture right through to the heavy use of Jamaican Patois in "The traffic Jam". Those not familiar with it will take several listens required before you'll know exactly what's being said!
Other highlights I would pick out are "Hey Baby" - a sweet and yearning love song. "Lonely Avenue"- a reggae-style cover of a Ray Charles classic. "Inna di Red", "Mind Control" and "Fed Up" equally as great as the other songs.
If you buy this disk, you'll not regret the purchase.
