Ranking Joe World In Trouble

Listen to Ranking Joe‘s World In Trouble and you‘ll think one of two things: either Joe‘s repetitive pro-Jah/anti-Babylon chants are lyrical tools facilitating greater roots-man consciousness; or Joe is the world‘s worst lyricist. At least there‘s no debating World contains some real tough roots reggae riddims. Pleasant surprises include the ska-roots (Skaboom) remix of the title track by UK outfit Vibronics, and a bonus remix cut of "Don‘t Follow Babylon," featuring former Black Uhuru front-man Mykal Rose. There‘s some potential here-just don‘t expect Joe to reinvigorate the genre.
