Overview

Sean Paul took the pop world by storm in 2003 with the release of the dancehall pop smash Dutty Rock, placing songs at the top of the charts, videos in heavy rotation, and his face all over the place. He took his time releasing the follow-up, 2005's Trinity, and rather than going even more pop, Paul heads toward a harder, more aggressive sound. The songs sound tailored for dancefloors rather than pop airplay. This approach works for a song or two -- this may be a result of a shift in producers from big names with poppier backgrounds like Sly & Robbie, the Neptunes, and Steely & Clevie to lesser-knowns like Delano Thomas, Michael Jarrett, Craig Parks, and Donovan "Vendetta" Bennett. Each song relies on standard synth sounds and straightforward beats, and there are precious few surprises on the record, sound-wise. Even Steven "Lenky" Marsden, the undisputed star producer on Dutty Rock, fails to do much with his songs on Trinity. Of course, blaming the producers for a lack of hooks and excitement is like blaming only the coach when a team goes in the tank; you have to lay a large portion at Paul's feet since he co-wrote all the songs, delivers the vocals, and has his name on the marquee. His vocals are strong enough but, overall, lack the freshness and vigor of those on Dutty Rock. But The opening run of songs ("Head in the Zone," "We Be Burnin'," "Send It On," and "Ever Blazin'") have all the subtlety (and titles) of a hyperactive workout mix, and a handful of the songs do have a glimmer of the spark that burned so brightly on Dutty Rock. There are a few songs, like the bouncy "Head to Toe," the bouncier "Straight Up," the slick Nina Sky feature "Connection," and "Yardie Bone" (which has smooth vocals from Wayne Marshall, a much needed light production from Bennett, and is probably the best song on the album) which help to lift the album out of its somber funk. [The album was reissued in the summer of 2006 with the addition of a bonus disc containing collaborations with Carlos Santana and Joss Stone ("Cry Baby Cry") and Rihanna ("Break It Off"), a non-album track ("As Time Goes On"), and three songs ("Temperature," "Get Busy," and "Never Gonna Be the Same") recorded for an AOL Session.]

Sean Paul has distinguished himself from his fellow dancehall artists like Beenie Man, Buju Banton, Lady Saw and the likes and with his new album "Trinity", Sean Paul has set himself aside from the day to day dancehall music. Using harder hip-hop inspired beats, meaner lyrics, "Trinity" sounds brasher and harder than his previous smash "Dutty Rock". The one thing listeners have to credit Sean Paul for is trying not to fit completely in with the "average joe" in dancehall defining his sound by being more risky with how his music is produced and who he works with. Though the new album is not a serious stunner at first, "Trinity" does draw you in further with each song. It's no "Dutty Rock", but it is one of Sean Pauls' more defined and cooler works. You gotta love his work.
