Overall rating : (1 to 5 stars)   
Some of reggae music's most popular names to date all on the same riddim, a delicious rearrangement of "Up park camp" aka The Heptones Studio One classic "Get in the groove". Morgan Heritage of course seem to go from strength to strength. Bubble in the struggle, a song of encouragement to all the ghetto youths - and indeed to anyone who suffers in the rat race - is their debut with Xterminator and the combination is murderous!! Luciano approaches the subject differently singing his heart out in protest at the huge profits made by those who own the bauxite companies and their lack of concern at the plight of the poor. Last but not least Beres Hammond comments on the violence rife within the ghetto as a result of the poverty and injustice meted out by those at the top of society's heap. Besides the aforementioned tracks don't forget to check out the AA side of Morgan Heritage's cut, Louie Culture's wicked deejay piece to the same riddim. The subject is different, but the high quality standard remains the same.
