CD Reviews

The B at his rootsiest... fantastic CD!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"The B is a dancehall artist but this CD has a definite roots vibe, for me at least. If you stumbled on this not really knowing how good the B is--I saw him in Mandeville, JA on same program with Luciano... and it was B who tore the place up. I think Jamaicans know a bit about reggae, don't you? This guy has so much talent its scary.

If you're strictly roots, don't pass this CD up. Have a listen to the samples... I think you're going to dig it. Every song rocks."

"Yes I, Anthony B is a Rastaman for sure. This Bobo Dread is often overshadowed by his more famous bredrens Capleton & Sizzla. Perhaps its because he can address the issue without catering to the masses who want to hear slackness a gwan... and for that Anthony B has earned my respect. Anthony B also has a unique deejay style... with his sometimes nasal off-tone vocals and his trademark "yak a yo". Standout tracks are Universal Struggle, Waan Back, Seek Jah First (remember always to put God first), Nah Vote Again, and Zinc Fence Jungle featuring Luciano. Other good tunes are The Mockingbird, Rastaman School and Sunburnt Faces. Marley Memories is a fun song which has a melody of Bob Marley's famous reggae hits. This is one of Anthony B's best albums and he has secured his name among the modern Rasta reggae greats. At first I couldn't get used to his distinct style but the more and more I listened to it, the more it grew on me. Yeah man, Anthony B keep it real. Don't pass this one up, fe true. Yak a yak a yo!"
