Synopsis

Amazon.com
With the release of 1995's Til Shiloh, reggae's premiere dancehall DJ proved he is as powerful a singer as he is a chanter. A quintessential Jamaican genius, Buju is a nexus of everything about that music culture that awes and frustrates outsiders who fall under its spell. This 21-track follow-up is every bit Shiloh's equal, even an unimaginable step forward. "Our Father in Zion," "Destiny," and "African Pride" swell the heart as full as any of Marley's compositions, while "Redder Than Red," "My Woman Now," and "Love Dem Bad" prove Buju's still dancehall's Mr. Mention. Best of all, Buju reconciles reggae's divided soul, suggesting that the mountaintop Rastaman and the ghetto rude boy are one and the same. --Elena Oumano

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Inna Heights has been one of my favorite cds since it came out. I listen to pretty much everything, and while the 11 other CDs I keep in the visor slots have changed time and time again over the years, this one has remained a constant.

I should also mention that I purchased this CD five times within the first two years it came out because my friends kept stealing it or borrowing it and "forgetting" to give it back. Was a great choice to listen to in my discman while running track. Now the whole album is on my husband's ipod.

And its really for everyone. While I LOVE Dancehall/ Reggae, even non-fans choose to listen to this CD in my car. These passengers include my mother and my kids."
