Rating : (1 to 5 stars)


Being one of the UK's current hottest 'roots & culture' talents Jamaican born Levi Roots has been involved in reggae music - as a singer, songwriter and producer - since the eighties. In the late nineties Levi Roots reunited with the Tenue brothers, whith whom he had worked before as they were part of his former band Matic 16, and 'SoundBox' was formed, a production team which drew notable attention with some critical acclaimed single releases and Levi Roots' MOBO award winning fine roots album, "Free Your Mind".
With "Marvalous" Levi Roots once again showcases that he definitely has the skills and talent to write and sing an appealing and enjoyable roots tune. Across a solid riddim Levi Roots delivers - lyrically and vocally spoken - a decent effort. "Marvalous" - as well as the also on single released "F.R.I.E.N.D.S. 2000" and "Greedy Bug" - will be featured on Levi Roots' forthcoming album "Asante Sana".
