Beenie's gal and bwoy fans should already have this album.

"I love me some reggae! Beenie is a reggae genius to all those who can't say anything nice about synthetic reggae or the man shouldn't say nothing at all. This is one of his best albums that I really enjoy. When it comes time for me to move away from radio music or anything mainstream I go international or should I say overseas.

Even though he goes deep with "Back Against the Wall," he still nails the naughty numbers like he was born to strut. "Doctor Mi Rate Yu" and "Grindacologist" is one of my favorites due to its catchy and irresistible chorus. The Timbaland-produced "All Girls Party" has some frisky beat and gives Beenie plenty of lyrical inspiration that fits rather nicely. "Dr. Know" with Jimmy Cheezetrix has an old and new vibe reggae that's on point as well as "If A never God", which is also a good song. R. Kelly is the only other singer who can actually pull off "Take off your Underwear," and get away with it but I couldn't help but to like this song.

Beenie also does a excellent job with "King of the Dancehall" an anthem that he puts out convincingly, and when he mimics Yellowman's faux Chinese on "Love All Girls," it's an admirable nod to an obvious influence. It's good to see Beenie moving away from just odes to booty with these little lyrical touches. I will also add "Get on Bad," and "Set Away," as standout tracks from this album.

`Back to Basics' is a keeper because you can't go wrong with the King of Dancehall.Even if you don't understand him lyrically the rhythm of this album will make up for it. Highly recommend to all reggae lovers and to those who are interested in this flavor.
"FIRE" .................... Another Classic.

"Man Oh Man. Just when prople think that Beenie Man is Done he comes out with another hot album. He really went Back to the Basic Beenie. He really shows his domination of dancehall through out the years with all of the major production on the album. He has "Dude" on the Festa Riddim by Mad House, "Good Woe on the Coolie Dance Riddim, "Love All Girls" on the Ching Chong Riddim by Black Shadow, "Doctor Mi Rate Yu" on the Mad Guitar Riddim by Don Corleon and "Dr Know" on the Pretty Pretty Riddim. My favorite songs have to be "All Girls Party", "Set Away" and "Get On Bad". This is a classic CD"
