Rasta Cool
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you have any love for Jamaican music you've got to get this album as a starting point for developing an appreciation of this artist. I'd bought a CD lot of Reggae discs and of the 12 total, this was the stand-out gem of the bunch. The tracks skirt the line between world music and traditional Reggae, since AB recorded with the Wailers, but incorporates some African precussions. Not as soulful as Toots, or as accessable to the masses as Marley, AB fits nicely in any reggae collection when you need some get up and dance and forget about your cares music. Don't be fooled by the name though, Alpha is boss to get you on your feet. As far as I'm concerned, AB is right up there with the Jamaican legends, bringing much flavor to your next party."
Are you kidding me? A must have....

"This CD is melodious and smooth. It starts off with a pop kind of tune, but it gets more deep as the CD progresses. It is the kind of album that builds momentum as it goes along. It makes you yearn to know exactly what he's talking about, because he has such passion behind his lyrics. The last three songs are classics, and can be played over and over again without getting tired. This is a must have for any collection."

"This is the perfect mix of decent Alpha Blonde stuff, recommended for new and old fans alike. If you need only one album, i would say this is the one =)"
