Richie Spice and Jah Cure Toe 2 Toe Vol. IX
- Words: Eric K. Arnold
- Label: Jet Star
If you‘ve been waiting for the next Gregory Isaacs and Dennis Brown, look no further than Richie Spice and Jah Cure. Both have earned reputations as being among Jamaica‘s most inspirational artists, and these spearheads of current reggae offer ‘nuff livity on their Toe 2 Toe album. This UK release offers several tracks unavailable on their US LPs to date, and all of them are winners. Each singer has crafted a distinct style; Spice‘s trademark na na nas and falsetto trills, and Cure‘s chant-like utterances mesh well together, resulting in a smooth-flowing album that delivers contemporary roots with no roadblocks. Even though the two never team up in combination, this blazing set is indeed big all around.
