Only a woman as understatement

"The title of this album is Only A Woman. That is indeed an understatement. Hear Ms Mowatt roar and be impressed. She is a gifted vocalist and songwriter. This former member of the I-Threes continues to impress. Judy Mowatt easily outshines Rita Marley and Marcia Griffith with her output. This follow up to Black Woman is an excellent album. Any fan of reggae music should give this album a listen. The opening track You're My People sets the tone for this album. This is music with social consciousness. There is no runt among the litter here. Each track stands up on its own. The title cut is one of the stand out tracks on the album. There is also a swaying cover of the Curtis Mayfield song You Don't Care. Bob Marley must be smiling in heaven when Judy Mowatt sings her songs. She has certainly made some great reggae music."

"judy mowatt is still the best woman in the reggae business. each song of her is full of energy, expression and first of all CONTENT. following the tradition of BLACK WOMAN, this ONLY A WOMAN is even toppling her previous achievements. her soul voice is superb and makes every line a feast. get this one and enjoy reggae music at its best."

"I sure expected more from this. I mean she was in the I Threes for crying out loud. I was hoping for some old school reggae like Marley made. Big mistake. What was she thinking? Was she trying to do 80's pop music to make some quick cash? Did she really think she could do that with this music? If you happen to listen to the other guy who raved about this album and buy it, listen to the first song's snare drum reggae intro and then skip to the next song and then skip again and again until you get all the way through it, because that's the only reggae you're going to find here. The rest is pure sap. Sorry Judy."
