    It's the "experimental" tracks like the humorous "Hey Sexy Lady," laced with mariachi trumpet, flamenco guitar, and castanets, and the bubbly old school reggae-country hybrid "We Are the One" that elevate Lucky Day to higher ground.

    Another crop of dance tracks for the masses. [8 Nov 2002, p.106]
  3. Lucky Day proves Shaggy's optimism and charisma don't require market-tested hooks.
  4. Lucky Day isn't about transforming the human condition, just about remaining Mr. Lover Lover--the man with a fluid waistline and the promise of good bed time.
  5. Q Magazine

    The attentions of trendsetting producer Dave Kelly ensure the music is tight where it matters. [Dec 2002, p.112]
  6. The faster Shaggy's music gets, the better it is.
  7. A cold and unengaging collection.
