Long Live The Undisputed King Of Reggae!
Review of Legend (Digitally Remastered) - Bob Marley by IanPhillips1979

Advantages: Contains the cream of Marley's work.
Disadvantages: Those wanting a more wider, comprehensive overview of his career should go for the box set instead

Jamaica's most gifted musical artist was undoubtedly the legendary Bob Marley. Marley and his dynamic backing group, The Wailers, became THE sound of Jamaica, taking reggae music into the mainstream. Deservedly hailed as the undisputed and unparalleled k ... Read review

Review of Universal Masters Collection - Aswad by Mauri

Disadvantages: Some very poor tracks

In the late 1970's and early 1980's Aswad were at the forefront of the home-grown British roots reggae scene. Along with other British bands such as Steel Pulse, Black Slate and Misty in Roots they took the Jamaican sound of Roots reggae and made it relev ... Read review

Review of More Up 2 Di Time (Parental Advisory) [PA] - Vybz Kartel by jusher

Advantages: Great Music
Disadvantages: Explicit Language

Vybz Kartel may yet be the stalking horse to dancehall's crown. Critics might complain that the established hierarchy is harder to crack than Fort Knox, but Kartel has already bust it open. Tracks like "New Millennium", "Why You Doing It?" and "Sweet To T ... Read review

Part and Parcel - awesome follow up to the first album
Review of Part & Parcel - Skints (The) by reservoirmonkey

Advantages: Catchy, Good Harmonies, Great Basslines
Disadvantages: None

This is the second full album from London reggae band The Skints. This is different from their debut - their earlier music was influenced by Punk and Ska Punk, whereas this has a much heavier classic reggae influence. There is an absence of distorted guit ... Read review

"not much can be said". Unfortunately, a consumer expects a bit more to be said in order to make a buying choice. by Essexgirl2006

Review of Love & Hate: The Best of Dennis Brown - Dennis Brown by Mauri

Advantages: A good selection of the best of Dennis Brown
Disadvantages: Inevitably a few key omissions

It is almost impossible to reduce the work of such a prolific artist as Dennis Brown to one 'Best of' compilation and so this cd 'Love and Hate - The Best of Dennis Brown' is bound to fall short of its ambitious remit. However this compilation does a ... Read review

ROOTS, ROCK,(COMMERCIAL) REGGAE
Review of Anthem (Digitally Remastered) - Black Uhuru by Mauri

Advantages: Some good songs
Disadvantages: Some bad songs and overproduced

I still fondly remember seeing Black Uhuru at the Brixton Academy (then known as the Fair Deal) live in 1981. It was one of the first gigs I'd been to and it still ranks as one of the best. In 1981 Black Uhuru were beginning to achieve a certain amou ... Read review

2 Times Revolution reflects the change in music style
Review of 2 Times Revolution - Alborosie by NickAlexander84

Advantages: New beat, fresh sound, no consistency in the album in terms of rythym
Disadvantages: alot of sound effects

Inititally i thought the new album would be similar to the last one. But i was in for a suprise. Alborosie has changed his style slightly. From my point of view there has been a bit more influence from the new dancehall scene in his album. Somehow it soun ... Read review
