CD Reviews

Eddy Grant's best work.
Justo Roteta | Los Angeles, California United States | 09/14/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This 1984 release was Eddy's best project and included the very popular hit "Romancing The Stone" which made it onto the dance music, rock, R&B and reggae charts simultaneously. This was also his most prolific project with songs like "Ire Harry", "Rock You Good" and "Come On Let Me Love You" serving as fine examples of Eddy's eclectic musicianship and artistry."
Fantastic Caribbean mellow classic
Gary Selikow | Great Kush | 02/17/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In 1984, Eddy Grant, already a Reggae super-star, confounded critics who thought his career was over with this funky reggae album, adding a distinctly mid-80's favour to the album, without taking way from it's fundamental reggae.

The album begins with Romancing The Stone, the soundtrack title for the adventure movie starring Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner, setting an exciting mood.

It go's on to the funky rap-reggae Boys In The Street, the typical Grant reggae-rocker Till I Can't Take Love No More, the moody Blue Wave and several other great hits like the catchy Only Heaven Knows , the fast-paced Political Bassa and the funky and fun Ire Harry .

A fantastic Caribbean mellow classic.
