Not as authentic as it could have been,
This review is from: Reincarnated (Deluxe Version) (Audio CD)
When Snoop visited Jamaica as part of the process of creating this album he had the great fortune of meeting genuine little known Reggae artists (such as Cutty Corn). It begs the question why, with a wealth of authentic, unsigned talent in the Trench Town area alone, that Snoop chose to collaborate with the like of Miley Cyrus et al.
Whilst the album is not terrible and does include some tracks of merit it is neither a very good Reggae album or a particularly good Snoop album. In addition to using largely non-Jamaican and non-Reggae artists Snoop chose to source out a large part of the production instead of using the local and very successful Jamaican talent, which seems strange given that he visited a number of studios whilst filming the documentary for Reincarnated.
