Sean Paul, king of the dancehall reggae world, delivers in style with his album 'Dutty Rock' which has spawned top20 single 'Gimme The Light', and monster smash hit 'Get Busy'. Being a mainly r'n'b guy I was cautious about this, but now he ranks as my favourite male artist. Second single 'Get Busy' is easily the strongest on the album, filled with attitudes and a hypnotic funked-out beat. And next single 'Like Glue' wins the silver medal song-wise on the album. A very different affair from most of the album, it isn't a brash song, but Sean doesn't go soft - just listen to the lyrics! 'Top Of The Game' is a great track, possibly a future single, as is the superb 'Punkie'. Most of the tracks on this album are fantastic, but at times Sean does get a bit egotistical with his lyrics on his songs, and that detracts from the quality of the tracks. The prime example of this is 'I'm Still In Love With You' which is without doubt the worst song on the album. That minor complaint aside, 'Dutty Rock' is a great (if perhaps overlong) album, and Sean Paul is not a talent who should be overlooked by fans of any musical genre. Quality. p.s. the lyrics of some of the songs are included in the album, so don't worry if you can't understand some of it - you'll soon be able to!
