Anthony B Higher Meditation
- Words: James Mayo
- Label: Greensleeves
Since his first hit, 1995's "Fire Pon Rome," this Trelawny native has become one of Jamaica's most prolific, yet inconsistent, artists. On his 22nd solo joint, Anthony B reunites with U.K. producer Frenchie to create a more focused blend of conscious dancehall and roots reggae. He flows smoothly from the traditional sounds of "Just Can't Live that Way" to the raucous bounce of "Real Warriors" (an inspired Turbulence collabo), and gives praise to Marcus Garvey on the record's best track, "Honour to Marcus." Despite the dreadful "Smoke Weed Everyday," Higher Meditation packs as much heat as Anthony's incendiary debut.
