Synopsis

Amazon.com
Girlfriend counsel outweighs Saw's usual carnal chat on this set--her best of three recent collections. Marion Hall, Saw's real life good-girl, shines through in the gospel, "Glory Be to God." The title track, a sweetly voluptuous country & western lament over a slow-throbbing reggae bass, bares Saw's tender heart. None less than Linda Rondstadt is covering the tune for her next album! "What Is Slackness" is the most blistering attack on institutionalized hypocrisy in recent reggae memory: "Society a blame Lady Saw for the system them create/But when culture did a flop/They never let me t'rough the gate now/As me say `sex'/Them wan' fe jump on me case/...Slackness is when the road wan' fe fix/Slackness is when the government break them promise/Slackness is when the government issue guns." --Elena Oumano

The Queen of Dancehall Reggae !!
Duane Harris(Deafpoppa1@aol.com) | Hotlanta, GA | 12/19/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Lady Saw is better than Patra and better than most male Dancehall artist. Slammin' beats and raw lyrics. This will be a heavy rotation in your car ride!"
