Sizzla Soul Deep
- Words: Eric K. Arnold
- Label: Greensleeves
Increasingly quirky and unpredictable, half the fun of listening to a new Sizzla album is hearing what he‘s gonna do next. By now, we‘re all familiar with his Bobo dread steez, so it‘s expected that he‘s gonna drop some conscious lyrics, positive messages, and otherwise honor-rebel sentiments. But while some ragga deejays never vary their flow, Sizzla switches his tone, cadence, and pitch constantly, making what could have been a claustrophobic listening experience-Donovan Bennett‘s riddims tend toward the minimal-into something else entirely. Sizzla‘s yelps, squeals and falsetto trills keep things interesting, and "Good Morning" and "Mount Zion" can safely be added to the Kalonji catalogue of classics.
