  1. Tropical Storm should be the album that blows away fans and critics alike.
  2. 70
    The smoothed-out international pop sound lets Beenie focus on doing what he does best -- making party music for party people.

    Storm is no Shaggy-style mall-reggae move; its beats and attitude are harder and more streetwise than Beenie's 2000 Art And Life. [Oct 2002, p.116]
  4. It's blatant commercial product, something for everyone.
  5. Q Magazine
    60
    All baes covered, an international hit seems guaranteed. [Oct 2002, p.100]
  6. A complex and rewarding exploration of the many musical and lyrical themes that tie contemporary reggae and hip-hop together.
  7. Only the thickly gnarled riddims of the Sly-and-Robbie-produced "You Babe" really sets your ass to swaying -- and in the process, that song underscores just what a weak Storm this really is.
