Overall rating : (1 to 5 stars)   
About half a year after Luciano's "Ulterior Motive" and Mikey General's Babylon Cake" made a serious impact Xterminator producer "Fatis" Burrell releases two more cuts on the "Stealing" riddim. "Babylon dem a try a ting, but we no scared..." declaims Sizzla and although he has had so many records out recently that we are becoming inured to him, it's truly amazing that there has been no discernible let up in the potency of his lyrics or his delivery. Capleton seems to have more problems to handle the uptempo riddim than his fellow bobo dread, but in the end he succeeds in putting out a solid roots tune delivering his biting lyrics in his own inimitable style.
