Whereas some labels put together collections that, at best, offer second-rate tunes from first-rate artists, the Reggae Gold series stands for just that, track for track. The music's mainstream U.S. profile may be low, but Gold '99's 18 selections from Jamaica's steaming club turntables suggest that reggae creativity is running fever-high. An interesting attribute of this compilation is the partnerings between otherwise solo acts, including established reggae kings Beres Hammond and Buju Banton, joining their huge talents for "Pull It Up," and youngbloods Mr. Vegas and Sean Paul, scorching dancehalls with "Haffi Get Da Gal." The shape-shifting Beenie Man's dead-serious "Better Learn," a warning to a certain fanatical and fractious element within the reggae fraternity, is another highlight, as is Trinidad's number one soca rude boy, Machel Montano, celebrating curvaceous ladies in a reggae dancehall style with "Big Phat Fish." --Elena Oumano

I liked but compared to reggae gold '98 this was a let down.
(3 out of 5 stars)
"i loved the songs that was on the cd but some of them did not belong on reggae gold '99, maybe on some other dancehall mix. this is reggae gold and though a song maybe good does not mean that it is gold. there is a certain quality that a song must have in order to be on reggae gold, and this year not all the songs in my opinion had that quality. i do however recommend this cd for other listeners."
