LMS London 2 Paris
- Words: Jesse Serwer
- Label: VP
A schizophrenic mixture of Jah-fueled roots rockers, reggae lite, contemporary dancehall, straight hip-hop and guitar-laced fusion, the fourth album by Morgan Heritage refugees Laza, Miriam and Shy-Poo-three of the 29 children fathered by reggae "sire" Denroy Morgan–bounces from style to style without ever finding its groove. While such cocktails are almost standard issue with reggae artist albums these days, London 2 Paris is particularly void of consistency and suffers from an overuse of the vocoder that would have even Roger Troutman turning in his grave. A rare strikeout for VP, which has been producing increasingly consistent material as of late.
