Synopsis

Amazon.com
This musical adventurer will jump on any type of groove, from country & western to ragtime, even gospel, as in the rousing lead track, "Gospel Time," complete with huge choral backing and admonitions like "shake that booty Jesus gave you!" He's also about forging links to stateside cousins, as in the remix of "Tell Me," featuring New York City radio jock-rapper Angie Martinez. But dancehall reggae's amazingly prolific king knows he has to bring it all back to reggae dancehall, by sticking to clever patwah lyrics and the sublime "one-drop riddim" pattern that distinguishes reggae from everything else. Beenie's breakout "Who Am I?" was the only reggae track to enter Billboard's '98 R&B and pop charts, and this imaginatively conceived set of hardcore dancehall tunes is packed with plenty more international pop possibilities. --Elena Oumano
 

CD Reviews

Fluff
supastar | brooklyn | 03/28/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"The only good song is World Gone Mad, but maybe worth the price of the cd if you can get it used or on major sale because its so good. The rest of that r&b/hiphop/reggae/gospel curry just doesnt mesh into anything good."
Bad Man Nuh Flee --Tight
