CD Reviews

Reggae Infused with Popular Sensibilities
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Cocoa Tea's album, Rikers Island is grounded in the traditional forms of "classic reggae" which can be attributed to the likes of Lee "Scratch" Perry, early Peter Tosh and Bob Marley. He is able is infuse carrabean sounds with popular undertones that makes his appeal to both purist and dancehall listners almost hypnotic. In this album, Cocoa Tea's popular appeal is much like what Eddie Grant received with his "Electric Avenue" hit in the early eighties.This is album is truly a classic for all reggae enthusiasts. With hits like "Fool in Love" and "Riker's Island" this album is a must buy!"
