The first review? I am surprised.
(4 out of 5 stars)

"In an era which many consider to be a wasteland of traditional roots reggae and the long years after the departure of the reggae songwriters, Lucky Dube is a find. Though the album was released in 1990, the songs will song fresh on first listen today. Dube's music on Prisoner is highly polished, and the powerful and smooth female vocal back-up singers are used on every track. The closest comparison to Dube is Tosh. He has a voice similar to Tosh and the music is more highly produced than Marley, like many of Tosh's tracks. Prisoner is a classic and difficult for anyone not to like. Each song has a melodic hook. Women love Remember Me. The first five tracks are among the strongest on any reggae album. The album misses 5 stars as the last three tracks are weaker. This is a must own for the fan of traditional, song-based reggae."

"Because it sounds so good. Lucky Dube's voice is full of emotional power when he sings, it also sounds from the heart and here's your chane to get 'Lucky' too :) Most of the songs on here sound better than the rest, but you be the judge."
