Synopsis

Amazon.com
It may seem to the reggae world that General Grant burst from nowhere onto the reggae top 10 chart. Actually, this reggae-dance-soca artist with a Shaggy sound and style hails from Trinidad and Tobago, and how his debut became a top 10 reggae-charter is a mystery. One thing for sure: this derivative set would never fly in Jamaica. Grant's workmanlike old school flow passes muster, but the productions are embarrassing. The title track is the kind of appealing booty anthem that does lead album sales, but tracks like "Do U Wanna Get Freaky Wit G," with its abysmal background choruses, are completely out of step. For the most part, this record is less about making music than it is about making overtures to as many music demographics as possible--including aging funkateers!--with mismatched bits of R&B, reggae, elevator soul, whatever. --Elena Oumano
