As successor of his very successful (platinum reaching) 3rd album "Confidence" Gentleman treats us to the album "Another Intensity". An album that has taken a lot of time and troubles for Gentleman, as his newly gained mainstream superstar status wasn't just a blessing, but led to a burn-out and writers-block as well, causing the original plan to record a full dancehall album to be dismissed but in the end resulting in this more than satisfying roots album showing that Gentleman is back on track. Gentleman however made up for the wait with the tune that was released as first single taken from his "Another Intensity" album, the great "Different Places" over AL.TA.FA.AN's 'Senior'-riddim. And now he releases the excellent second single from that album, over the by Delano Thomas of Renaissance Sound produced and together with Black Chiney built smooth 'Legal'-riddim for the upful "Serenity", that is also featured over in its excellent "Serenity (Teka Remix)", on which the sound is just a bit more upful, with Rootdown Records' co-founder and in-house producer Thilo 'Teka' Jacks not only responsible for the in-your-face remix, but also for all instruments except the heavy pounding bassline courtesy of former Senior Allstars bassie André Meyer. Even when there's only one new tune (i.e. remix) on this single-CD it's for the price of a single CD still worth getting it as both tunes are beautiful and a must have if you don't own the album yet, but still a good buy if you do.
