  1. A complex and rewarding exploration of the many musical and lyrical themes that tie contemporary reggae and hip-hop together.

    Superfine pop moments never stifle the underlying Jamaican flavor... even if Beenie sometimes sounds a bit like a guest on his own album. [#10, p.114]
  3. It's blatant commercial product, something for everyone.

    All baes covered, an international hit seems guaranteed. [Oct 2002, p.100]
  5. 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.
