"If your idea of good reggae music is Eddie Grant, UB40, and The Police, then you'll like this CD. Jimmy Cliff sounds as if he's adopted the English pop-reggae style wholesale, so don't expect anything rude or tough from Give the People What They Want. This isn't to say there's nothing good about it. "My Philosohpy" is a fine song. The production on the CD is very slick, and Jimmy Cliff's voice is strong. But when you put this CD in perspective, you see why DJs like Yellowman and Eek-A-Mouse took over the reggae scene in the early 80s. While Jimmy Cliff was entering a phase of his career during which he would co-star with Robin Williams in Club Paradise, there were still singers in Jamaican music who could represent the toughness that Jimmy Cliff once emblemized in The Harder They Come and Wonderful World, Beautiful People. This is a different Jimmy Cliff here. Like most of Jimmy Cliff's CDs, it's commercial and MOR. It's part of the descent that eventually will yield the horror of his Cliffhanger CD. If you're looking for roots and culture or a 'local' feel, don't buy this CD. If you want some friendly pop songs and a benign roots message, then go for it."

"A great work by a great reggae artist. This work was a favorite of mine in the mid-80's in college. I had a cassette version that didn't make it through one Texas summer. I vainly searched everywhere I traveled (many places). I had given up until I had a revelation (to check amazon) and what-do-u-know, I found it....:) Next time I will know where to look first. Thanks for stocking this great reggae masterpiece."
