CD Reviews

Play some of that funky reggae mix!

"I can listen to this CD forever. It's not my overall favorite, but that's only because I'm not the biggest fan of reggae. The music has great meaning, and at times touches you in ways only blues or classical could, but at other times it makes you jump, jive and wail, baby!"
Nice flavor

"Although Maxi Priest has skills, he also has a problem that plagues a number of other good artists. That is, people can love his first single, but then how come nobody buys his album?This is not only a good album for reggae fans, but it's also good for anyone that just needs that extra bit of energy to start their day. "Love Will Cross Over" is a good song about his faith in God, "Golden Teardrops" is an interesting storytelling in action, and "Happy Days" features just great music and catchy lyrics from guests Chaka Demus & Pliers (remember "Murder She Wrote"?). Maxi also does a good job with his cover of Sting's "Message In A Bottle". And the title track features lyrics that may seem a little corny by today's standards, but for '96 they were pretty decent.I knocked off a star for two reasons: the second version of "That Girl" is unnecessary, and I can't figure out what "Frienenemy" is about. But this is still a great album overall. While it doesn't features any jams to the likes of "Close To You" ("Won't Let It Slip Away" comes close, though), none of the songs on here are bad and it's just what you need to have a good time."
