Dutty Rock [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Mark Schwartz
There are plenty of other dancehall MCs who run things with Jamaican audiences, but Sean Paul is the darling of the New York massive, thanks to enormous crossover hits such as "Gimme the Light," the inescapable club jam from the summer of 2002. And unlike nearly every Jamdown rapper this side of Shaggy, Sean Paul Henriques has made hip-hop and urban audiences accept him on his own terms. Dutty Rock is the most refreshing hard-core dancehall production to touch down on these shores in many a moon. Sure, there are guest stars Busta Rhymes shows for an inevitable "Gimme the Light" remix; the Neptunes helm "Bubble"; and DJ-to-the-stars Mark Ronson produces "International ...

Barnes & Noble - Mark Schwartz
There are plenty of other dancehall MCs who run things with Jamaican audiences, but Sean Paul is the darling of the New York massive, thanks to enormous crossover hits such as "Gimme the Light," the inescapable club jam from the summer of 2002. And unlike nearly every Jamdown rapper this side of Shaggy, Sean Paul Henriques has made hip-hop and urban audiences accept him on his own terms. Dutty Rock is the most refreshing hard-core dancehall production to touch down on these shores in many a moon. Sure, there are guest stars Busta Rhymes shows for an inevitable "Gimme the Light" remix; the Neptunes helm "Bubble"; and DJ-to-the-stars Mark Ronson produces "International Affair", but the inclusion of underground favorites such as the Roots' human beat box Rahzel and DJ Tony Touch reflect decisions that may even be -- gasp! -- artistic, rather than naked stabs at marketability. Then there's a delightful old-school Alton Ellis ballad, "I'm Still in Love with You," respectfully rendered by Steely & Clevie -- just one of the surprisingly nuanced productions Sean Paul inspires from Jamaica's usual suspects Sly & Robbie, Colin "Bulby" Yorke, Shocking Vibes, and even King Jammy. By so handily energizing the varied producers and musicians working with this young Chinese-Portuguese-Jamaican phenomenon, Sean Paul could very well revolutionize the notoriously slack dancehall industry. Dutty Rock is a great place to start.
All Music Guide - Tim Sendra
Sean Paul's Dutty Rock is an infectious record, bursting with hooks and filled with energy; it is a surprise U.S. hit. Paul's mix of dancehall and modern R&B and hip-hop is lightweight and easy to dance to. It slows down near the end as some filler creeps in, but at its best, Dutty Rock is almost revolutionary. Paul utilizes big-name producers like Sly & Robbie, Steely & Clevie, Jeremy Harding, and the ubiquitous Neptunes, whose sexy "Bubble" is one of the highlights of the record. The best track, the stuttering, can't-get-it-out-of-your-head catchy "Get Busy," is produced by Steven "Lenky" Marsden and features his staggeringly popular diwali rhythm and a great vocal by Paul. Other tracks, like the hit single "Gimme the Light," and the "Louie Louie"-influenced "Like Glue," are almost as good. Paul has a good ear for melody and his flat, distinctive voice is perfect for his sing-jay style sing-jay being a blend of DJ and singing. Paul also ropes in Busta Rhymes for an amped-up remix of "Gimme the Light," and Rahzel of the Roots to provide rapping and silly noises on "Top of the Game." This is such a good record that even the skits are pretty good. "Police Skit" may even provide a few chuckles. Sean Paul's blend of dancehall and hip-hop brings out the best of each genre, and Dutty Rock should be booming out of your Jeep if you are a fan of either. [Dutty Rock was reissued in September of 2003 with the addition of "Baby Boy," an excellent track from Beyoncé's Dangerously in Love record that features Sean Paul, and the subtraction of the humorous but inessential skits, and one of the original album's weakest tracks, "It's On." This reshuffling makes an already strong album even stronger.]
Rolling Stone - Jon Caramanica
"Gimme the Light," Sean Paul's unlikely [2002] summer smash... a sticky ode to toking, with a twinkling beat and an undeniable hook.
