Born in 1974 in Davey Town, Jamaica, Jepther McClymont aka Luciano stands like a figurehead at the prow of international reggae music. Not only is most of his music memorable, he also has the unerring ability to rise above whatever machinations, politics or fashion changes reggae is going through. Thus it's only right that Luciano - just like Beenie Man before him - has been singled out for a second volume in Jet Star's handy budget-priced "Reggae Max" series. Just like Luciano's first "Reggae Max" set, which was released in 1997, this is an excellent collection of tunes featuring former singles such as "Empress Love", "Step Right In", "Visions", "Call On Yahweh", "Be Of Good Courage", "Lessons Of Life", "Come Away", "When Man On Earth" and the minor classic "Ulterior Motive".
