Overview

Easy Star, Vol. 2: Dancehall Culture

Here's another fine compilation album from one of America's most consistent reggae labels. Offering 18 takes on about half as many rhythms (singers and DJs frequently double up on a single rhythm throughout the program), Dancehall Culture showcases some of the finest reggae talent on the New York scene. Half Pint delivers the goods on the sweetly romantic "Love Potion Number 9" (no relation to the Lieber & Stoller hit), Frankie Paul has never been in better voice than he is here on "Just One Moment Away," and Anthony B and Dollarman take turns making fine use of the same rhythm on "Love So Divine" and "Don't Wanna Leave," respectively. The old-school talent is kind of a mixed bag: the Meditations sound terrible on "Run Away Heathen," but the great Tony Tuff takes a brilliant turn with "Wanty Wanty." As he tends to do, Luciano runs away with the program early on, opening the proceedings with his typically devout "Hopes on High." This album may be a bit uneven, but it will be sure to please any fan of modern reggae.
