"Okay, the main reason that I got this album is because I thought that it would be a war album, meaning I thought that it would be full of tunes that one artist had mad against the other, but its more like a greatest hits album of each from tunes of the early/mid 1990's. Mad Cobra of course wouldn't be Mad Cobra if he didn't include some war/gun tunes, and he did it better than anyone in the business at the time. Best tune from Cobra on the record is Dem Haffi Move, which to this day can hold a dance every once in a while. This album was made at the height of Cobra's power's, and when Beenie was still developing, on the other hand. But even then (Before "Who Am I"), he was still an excellent dj, and of course his specialty was gal tunes, check Tek Weh Yu Girl on this one, he's more politically armed in the rest of his tunes, which isn't his forte, bu still check Once a Year and Bury Yu Dead.
If you really really love dancehall, then this underrated gem is really a needle in the haystack, its a very good album. Obviously being a fan of both helps, but even in my case, huge Beenie fan and not much so in Cobra, I still like it."
