Overall rating : (1 to 5 stars)   
From JA's double barrell riddim dons Steelie and Clevie come 8 versions of the 'Sniper' riddim, to juggle alongside Harrie Todler's Bad Man Nuh Dress Like Girl. Powerman delivers a mean version of the classic Toots & The Maytals track Peeping Tom. Scare Dem Crew representative Elephant Man puts out a solid effort with One & Move. General Degree rinses out his lyrics to deadly effect on the excellent Know You Fi Know. The combination Ghost and Saba Tooth doesn't stand out, but they work well together. Buccaneer delivers a good performance on Father Joe Joe. On the flipside newcomer Black Rat puts out an average tune. Dilly Dally by Determine is the only cultural cut and his tune stands out from the pack. Alley Cat's noteworthy effort on the riddim has to be pointed out because it's one of the better versions.
