Selected this CD because of my love for the track "I Confess" but ended up enjoying the entire album. Brings me back to the summer of my youth right before college.

CD Reviews

Excellent, but not quite as fine as their first
K. Swanson | Austin, TX United States | 01/30/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)

"4.4 stars

This is a very fine album, and if the first Beat record didn't happen to be the best of the genre (along with the first Specials album), this would be up there. But there are a few merely good tunes, such as Sorry, Sugar and Salvation, and the straight reggae tunes are also good but not great. But there are also a couple of truly classic singles: Later and Confess are hard to beat, uptempo islandish pop at its peak.

Those two tunes are so fine, however, that they lift this album into greatness. Take the best tunes off this and W'happen? and add the entire first album and you've got a mix cd that just can't be beat for non-stop dancing fun."
