Never Find A Man Like We showcases the vocal talents of vocalist Majestic and rapper Hurricane Gilbert. Majestic (Clarence Thompson) moved to the USA is 1985 where he founded the group called Dubb Addxx. Hurricane Gilbert (Gilbert Tucker) has recorded some tunes in Jamaica and the USA. He also produced such acts like Black Mice, Steve Flex and Wicked Worker. In 1997 both artists decided to work together to form the duo 'Hurricane Gilbert and Majestic'. That same year they won an award for the 'Best New Reggae Artists in 1997'. |
The album opens with their single Sensitivity which reached #2 on the charts in Florida. It's a groovy laid back tune with strong r&b influences. The instrumental version is included as well. Real Sex and Crazy are similar tunes. The title track is a good uptempo track. One of the highlights on the album is General which slightly reminds me of the Ini Kamoze track of the early 80's. Other interesting tracks are Jah Took I Up, Evil and Break These Locks. The sparse backing goes well together with the vocals.
All things considered it's an interesting debut set.
