Sean Paul is the Caribbean flag for western mainstream,
This review is from: Dutty Rock [Explicit Lyrics] (Audio CD)
As a Trinidadian who used to club heavy back home and now living in quite rural England. Listening to this album at university is as authentic and nostalgic as talking to friends from home about the good old days.
Sean Paul is the 'real ting' and I proudly pound this album and listen to it on long train journeys instead of Shaggy.
"Gimme de Light", "Get Busy" and "Like Glue" are the authentic dancehall tracks on this album with a great reappearance of Punkie for those of you who remember "dem ol time tunes". As a HUGE fan of hip hop/R&B I'm only encouraged by the presence of Busta Rhymes with West Indian roots who pushes Sean Paul along with a 'dred' remix of Gimme de Light. I've noticed the complaints about the number of tracks but back home when there were house parties, we used to get a new cd which was an expensive thing and play it all night. This is like Tesco Economy cds where we can get more tracks in one album. In an ever iPod present culture, it doesn't serve to be a problem where the caliber-stand out tracks are easily filtered. Buy this cd and a bottle of rum, its worth it.
