"If you're a fan of Bob Marley, you'll like Mowatt, who was one of the I-Three singers backing him up. She was a big part of his sound. Her voice is sweet and soulful, establishing an easy, swaying groove on every song. The album has held up well over the years; when I put it on today, people ask me interestedly "Hey, this is nice -- who is it?" Her sound is pure and devotional, and like Tosh's and Marley's music, it moves you."
Great songs, but not well produced

"The correct track listing is: Strength to go through/Concrete jungle/Slave queen/Put it on/Zion chant/Black woman/Down in the valley/Joseph/Many are called/Sisters' chant. This is not my favorite Judy Mowatt album, because the production leaves a lot to be desired and her voice sounds thin and reedy at times. There are some great songs, however, like Strength To Go Through, Down In The Valley and Many Are Called. She also does interesting interpretations of Bob Marley songs like Concrete Jungle and Put It On. There is not enough variation in the sound. I think the use of different producers would have been a good idea. Still, the album is redeemed by some some strong material and should satisfy the fans. It's just not a reggae album with crossover pop appeal."
Superb example of Reggae crossing over to deep Soul

"Former Bob Marley backing singer Judy Mowatt is one of Soul music's finest voices...and this album is her finest moment. Imagine a Memphis Soul album underpinned with a reggae rhythm soundtrack and you'll get the idea. This is essential listening whichever direction you're coming to it from, either as a reggae fan or as a soul fan! The title track is superb, as are Zion Chant, Strenght to Go Through and more...Listen and fall in love."
