Barnes & Noble - Mark Schwartz
Controversial DJ Capleton has one aim with MORE FIRE: bring down Babylon's kleptocracy with the light of Rastafari. He accomplishes this with uncompromising, spit-flying, righteous rage -- and with the help of an army of Jamdown's production all-stars, including David House, Steely and Cleevie, Fat Eyes, Xterminator, King Jammy, and more. Taking his name from a prominent Jamaican barrister an allusion to his verbal skills, Capleton seems less like the prosecuting attorney on MORE FIRE than an over-zealous executioner bent on burning his foes. Not without reason -- the veteran DJ, who minted dancehall righteousness with such hits as "Tour," has seen his turf poached by ...

Barnes & Noble - Mark Schwartz
Controversial DJ Capleton has one aim with MORE FIRE: bring down Babylon's kleptocracy with the light of Rastafari. He accomplishes this with uncompromising, spit-flying, righteous rage -- and with the help of an army of Jamdown's production all-stars, including David House, Steely and Cleevie, Fat Eyes, Xterminator, King Jammy, and more. Taking his name from a prominent Jamaican barrister an allusion to his verbal skills, Capleton seems less like the prosecuting attorney on MORE FIRE than an over-zealous executioner bent on burning his foes. Not without reason -- the veteran DJ, who minted dancehall righteousness with such hits as "Tour," has seen his turf poached by would-be prophets such as Sizzla and Anthony B. On the skanking "The More Them Try," he claims only strength from his enemies' assaults; "Critics" calls out those who "can't take me fire"; and "Pure Sodom" shows no more mercy than an Old Testament God. The dark yet varied productions keep MORE FIRE engaging as a courtroom drama. One caveat: Capleton's hoarse harangues can grow weary after 20 tracks. With pronouncements this devastating, the DJ could afford to let the prosecution rest.
All Music Guide - Rosalind Cummings-Yeates
From the very beginning, Capleton issued in a new era of conscious dancehall with his caustic, status quo-challenging lyrics, stirring up flames of controversy with every bellow of his thunderous vocals. More Fire continues the assault on Babylon with a tight package of sizzling beats and thought-provoking poetry. From the scorching riddims on "Danger Zone" to the wicked groove of "Who Dem?," this album guarantees non-stop dancing, as well as spiritual counsel, with tunes such as the anti-violence anthem "Jah Jah City" and "Good in Her Clothes," which offers praise for feminine modesty. On the opening track, "Fire Chant," Capleton explains, "Well, the fire is for purification and how can you fight fire?" If More Fire is any indication, listeners will have to admit defeat.

    We Want More Prophet!!!!

    This is the Best album from the Prophet yet. Those that know, respect and admire him will clearly recognize the maturity of his lyrics and appreciate the passion that flows from his work. Although the lyrical content may appear harsh to those who have not yet come to realize the serious effect certain actons have on the Universe and how the Universe responds to us as human beings, those of us that do realize will commend Capleton for saying what is needed to be said over and over and over again , Amen!
