A compilation of contemporary dancehall tunes from artists who actually don't belong to the cream of the crop in dancehall business. However, this doesn't imply that this is an album at the lower end of quality. On the contrary, although not every cut is a winner this album contains enough solid tunes to make it worth getting, especially when you like dancehall music. Worth mentioning are Super Beagle & Determine's "Rasta live" and - on a rhythm reminiscent of "kette drum" - Triston Palmer & Powerman's "Pressure", two real killer tunes.
