Synopsis

Amazon.com
Equal parts riddim sensation and mother wit, this dancehall reggae compilation corrals 15 bonafide tracks from the likes of Scare Dem crew's Harry Toddler, pop-crossover hero Beenie Man, "Voice of Jamaica" Buju Banton, Red Rat, Degree, and up-and-comer Sean Paul. But what lifts this set above the many other collections that appear every year is pacing and flow. Each intoxicating, drum-anchored track segues without pause into the next--just as they would under the governance of a dancehall selector--bringing you as close as you can get without an Air Jamaica ticket to the intoxicating aroma and electric combustion of a real-life Kingston dancehall. --Elena Oumano
