Luciano with his second album for Island Jamaica. Eleven tracks, produced by Philip "Fattis" Burrell. He's on a seriously cultural outing that never strays to far from messages of Rastafari and righteousness. Sly Dunbar, Donald Dennis & Dean Fraser lay down a solid backing, but on some tracks the backing vocals tend a little to a mainstream. It's a well polished album, Luciano's voice being very strong, and there's something for everyone : from reggae to soca and ballads. Never judge a book by it's cover : the sleeve is just terrible ! Check out the concert report of Luciano & Mikey General !
