I brought this album at a second hand store quite some time ago, on the strength of the excellent cover of  Stings "Jamaican In New York" and I remembered how pleasantly surprised I was with it.
Well recorded quality sound , the English born Shinehead delivers an enjoyable album of Rap/Ragga/Dacehall/jungle/pop/funk/dub. There are not many Rap groups/Albums that I like but this one is fun and appeals to me more because of the mix of styles used to construct these songs. I hadn't listened to this for quite some time, but it still sounds good after all this time. Interesting that it only got 2 stars at Allmusic I think its worth 3.5/5
Listen Here Cut and paste ling at bottom of track listing.
