Galore [Greensleeves] [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
The "Galore" rhythm is a collaboration between Leftside and Echo of the Pacemaker Muzik collective, and as dancehall rhythms go, it's a fairly interesting one. It's built on a hesitant midtempo beat and a dark, slightly Middle Eastern-flavored tonality, with subtle but ominous gunshot accents. You would expect a backing track of this type to bring out similarly dark and serious toasting from the assembled DJs, but in fact the predominant themes here are slackness and goofiness: Leftside and Echo's own "Wine Up Pon Her" and Dr. Evil's "More Punanny" are both unapologetically smarmy, as is Lady Saw predictably enough on the rather amusing "Bed Noise."

Idonia's "Chicken Head" is silly without being especially funny, while Beenie Man and Wayne Marshall disappoint with the lackluster "How Yuh Di Dis," which really should have been a highlight track but is instead a sad example of two accomplished pros phoning it in. The best moments are provided by Marshall on his solo track, the slamming "I Forgot Them," and by Buju Banton, whose lyrical singjay performance on "Go Slow" sets a high standard that too few others on this collection are able to meet. All in all, Galore is an acceptable album but far from the brightest moment in the series.
