There is a problem with this record, much the same problem that it had on last year's version. The problem is that if you are a deep listening, dancehall reggae nut, you already know all these tunes, and may even own most of them as singles already. However, if you are not an aforementioned dancehall nut, then this record might just be perfect for you. The dancehall version of Strictly the Best this year has alot of the favorite artists going today including Sean Paul, Buju Banton, Bounty Killer, Capleton, Sizzla, and Mad Cobra. And the tunes they pulled from the artists are arguably their biggest tunes of the year; Sufferah from Bounty Killer, Press Trigger from the snake and Tallup Tallup from Elephant Man. My favorites on the record are Sufferah of course, Wah Dat Fa by the underappreciated Baby Cham, very good tune and How It Ago by the fire man. My absolute favorite tune here however, is Fitness, by Bounty Killer and Angel Doolas, very slack tune, but just a really good, dark sounding tune. Capleton and Sizzla also both go the slack route with Tek It Off and Come On respectively (Sizzla not so much so as Capleton, but Come On is a really crazy sounding tune. I also like Highet Level by Elephant Man. The last track which is very out of place here is Jah is Always There by Warrior King, which VPRecords obviously put on this one to promote Warrior King's new record, Virtuous Woman, (which is awesome by the way)and it is a great track, but like i said much out of place. Overall, like i said, if you aren't too familiar with Dancehall this year, then by all means get this one, its a very good sounding album. Only complaint to VP, no Beenie Man? No woman DJ?"
