Tighty Tighty [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
The 61st installment in the Greensleeves label's ongoing series of "one-rhythm" albums on which 15 or 16 singers and DJs are invited to take turns singing or chatting over the same "rhythm," or instrumental track features a new entry from Donovan "Vendetta" Bennett, who has shaped up to be one of the more popular and influential dancehall producers on the Jamaican scene over the past couple of years. The "Tighty Tighty" rhythm is built on a synthesized acoustic guitar lick and has a faintly Latin flavor.

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
The 61st installment in the Greensleeves label's ongoing series of "one-rhythm" albums on which 15 or 16 singers and DJs are invited to take turns singing or chatting over the same "rhythm," or instrumental track features a new entry from Donovan "Vendetta" Bennett, who has shaped up to be one of the more popular and influential dancehall producers on the Jamaican scene over the past couple of years. The "Tighty Tighty" rhythm is built on a synthesized acoustic guitar lick and has a faintly Latin flavor. Unfortunately, the rhythm itself is more utilitarian than fun or interesting, and whereas the producers of other albums in this series have varied the rhythm somewhat from track to track, there is very little structural or textural variety on this one. The usual suspects are all present: Elephant Man with the title track, Vybz Kartel with an unbelievably slack contribution titled "Have Fi Good," Sizzla with the more restrained "Push & Shove." Elephant Man's number isn't bad, but it sounds as if he's developed something of a lisp -- it may be that he needs to change his brand of gold teeth. Ms. Thing offers a clever and infectious bling anthem called "Rich & Famous," and Bling Dawg's "Oh No" is similarly pop-friendly and hookswise. Nicky B's "Guns Blaze" brings a fresh breath of consciousness to the proceedings, and T.O.K. adds a hint of Mexican spice alongside gimmicky auto-tuned female vocals. This is far from the best volume in the series, but it's not bad overall.
