Tad's Riddim Ruler Series has not been firmly established but has already given us a couple of fine riddims like the Tad A. Dawkins Sr. version of the 'Hard Drugs'-riddim and of course the brilliant 'Drop It' by Kemar 'DJ Flava' McGregor's No Doubt Records. And in 2009 Tad's Records released in the Riddim Ruler (still spelled as Ruller) series the wonderful mento/kumina influenced 'National Pride' (& 'Perfect 10') as well as this most slept over wonderful lovers/roots R&B influenced 'Chemistry'-riddim. A superb smooth riddim laid by Demarco alongside and for Ronald 'Sunny Spoon' Wright and his Sons Of Spoon Music.

With only big vocals on top, whether singers, male or female, singjays both male and female or even (slow) deejaying veterans, newcomers or arrived stars, solo or in combination and even chipping in the fabulous Junior Reid "Foreign Mind Remix" alongside rapper C.L. Smooth, not to mention the former Jamaican #1 tune "Nothing Change (Love Reigns)" by Tarrus Riley alongside Bugle, this definitely is a one-riddim album that despite containing 20 tunes (including the version) never will bore you and must be heard and in fact belong's in your reggae collection if you're a true reggae lover.
