Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David Jeffries
Just like its cousin dancehall, soca went through an exciting period in 2004. Although the genre is notorious for its slow evolvement, it has made some attempts to stay hip with the street, making it not just carnival party music but also something the youth can get jiggy with.
