All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
Though some of his most powerful recordings have been roots-and-culture material -- Mr. Isaacs remains one of the finest roots reggae albums of all time -- Gregory Isaacs' bread and butter has always been pop-oriented love songs; his career was built on a unique ability to transcend an unattractively thin, almost whiny voice and turn it into an instrument of mass seduction. On Masterclass, a collaborative effort with the seemingly tireless producer Blacka Dread, he revisited those loverman roots, with very pleasing results.
