This second release on Itation Records is again a one-drop one riddim album with great tunes over an absolutely smashing riddim (laid with Dennis Brown's 'Should I'-riddim from 1979 by the Mighty 2 Errol 'E.T.' Thompson & Joe Gibbs definitely kept in mind) and is giving just as much pleasure to the listeners and buyers of this album as their first release "Higher Meditation Riddim" did. California's Jah Sun teams up with Prezident Brown for the very fine combination that gives this riddim its name "Show Love" (by two of its co-composers), followed by Natty King with "Let Them Live" and NiyoRah delivers the very impressive "Biggest Thugs" and Norrisman together with Pressure Buss Pipe contributes the even stronger combination "When Your Time Is Up".

Following are "Trodding Alone" by Lutan Fyah and an unusual combination that however works very well when Delly Ranx, the DJ who turned successful producer alongside Freddie McGregor's son Stephen 'The Genius' McGregor but who still deejays (very convincingly) appears alongside Florida based reggae songbird Fiona for the lovers tune "Hold Me Close". Gyptian also touches the smooth side of life with "This Love" before VI's Batch - who co-produced the first Itation Records' release "Higher Meditation" - turns our attention back to consciousness with his strong "Righteously Striving" and Bermuda's upcoming talented singer Troy Anthony pays tribute to his "Oh Mama".

Another strong St. Croix, USVI, artist Army then warns them to "Turn Up The Heat" because dem likkle fire can't disturb we before Rocker T makes a plea for "More Luv In Di Ghetto". The in my opinion underrated Jamaican singjay Al Pancho chants for a "Better Tomorrow" and then the next USVI artist Ras Attitude impresses with his "Only Jah Knows" followed by the nice Californian combination by Binghi Ghost & Love Fyah telling us that "Youths Need Love". Ras Matthew Pailes from Sacramento in California sings his praises in "Hail Up The King" and the blessings of H.I.M. are also the subject of "Blessed Be" by Ishi Dube & Jah Dan and of Lady Passion's "I Am Blessed". The last vocal of this album is Ras Indio's ganja tune "Healing Of The Nation" before this truly impressive riddim proves its strength on its own in the clean "Show Love Version".
