Strictly the Best, Vol. 11

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rosalind Cummings-Yeates
The Strictly the Best series is the longest-running reggae compilation series and this volume clearly demonstrates why. A solid collection of 1998's hard-driving dancehall, Strictly the Best XXI displays the rough and ready side of the genre, booming with hot beats, sex and attitude.
