Synopsis

Amazon.com
Who could fill the shoes left by this band's first lead singer and songwriter, the mesmerizing Jacob Miller? Before his tragic 1980 death in a car crash, Miller was second in popularity only to Bob Marley. After several years' struggle, the band resurfaced in 1987 with this CD, powered by new frontman Carlton Coffie--a fine singer but no Miller. The set spun off their "Bad Boys" smash hit, which became the theme song for the popular TV docu-show "Cops" and boosted the band's currency higher than ever. But this pop-infused CD holds no other reggae revelations. Reggae fans are best advised to seek out vintage and reissued Inner Circle releases with Miller's glorious vibrato at the helm, when they recorded such luminous anthems as "Forward Jah Jah Children," "Tenement Yard," and "Tired Fe Lick Weed in a Bush." --Elena Oumano

(5 out of 5 stars)

"So they let COPS use Bad Boys as a theme song. So what? They're still a first-rate Reggae band, and you are an idiot for disliking them for that reason.


NO stars for Hey Now."
