This review is from: Dutty Rock [Explicit Lyrics] (Audio CD)
The only thing wrong with this album is the number of tracks. But that's something that's easily fixed by using the "skip" button on your CD player.
The CD starts of with some superb tracks, and winds down (only a little) for the mid-section of duets. The music and Paul's style is so infectious you find yourself joining in (I am particularly pathetic at toasting, but that doesn't stop me).
The intro reminds you of the power of ska and the birth of punk -- but then gets right into the now with Dancehall Dutty Rock.
All of the tracks are great. Only the remixes towards the end start to plod. Busta Rhymes jumps on the Gimme the Light bandwagon. Tony Touch/Toca and the Neptunes join in with poor efforts, too. This just highlights to me how far behind Hip Hop has fallen -- it's so formulaic now that I find myself only listening to old school Hip Hop. On a CD full of nothing but love for gyals, g**ja and dancehall culture, Busta et al's yanking us back to the talk of 9s grates on the nerves.
Sean Paul is a big noise in the Hip Hop community right now and deservedly so because he brings a freshness to something which is starting to look old and outmoded with all the bling -- it's the Hip Hop presence on this album which is the only negative. Hip Hop is out of touch with the street now.
This album's a keeper.
