Overall rating : (1 to 5 stars)   
Three 7' singles (6 versions !) on the 'Space Invaders' riddim, courtesy of Lenkie & Frenchie and produced by Frenchie for his Maximum Sound Productions outlet. The riddim is a lingering, melodic tune, suited for lovers tunes. Looking at the lyrics of these cuts, it's quite obvious what it's all about : "I get crazy when your fingers touch my body, I get rude when I get in the mood..." (Chico-I go wild), or "..ladies, it got to be me..." (Mr. Vegas-Got to be me), and finally "Frenchie, buss the door, make them come in, Salina, Angelina..." (General Degree-Buss the door). Mr. Vegas, an upcoming and very talented singer, has the best record from the bunch. T.O.K. is far from exciting, but Italee puts out a better effort. Newcomer Chico delivers a crisp tune. General Degree's style is well known and he comes up with a catchy version of the ridddim.
