Turbulence The Truth
- Words: Matt Fisher
- Label: Ras
Turbulence has drawn many comparisons to Anthony B and Sizzla, but his emergence as a singer with his own style has been gradual. His recorded work has, until now, lagged behind his rep as a stunning live performer and vocalist of enormous potential. Turbulence retains the raw DJ stylings that first brought him attention, but his fragile, undulating singing (backed by Sly and Robbie and the plucky guitar of Chinna Smith) finally sounds at home. The Truth's snappy drum beats, conscious lyrics and occasionally funny turns of phrase are a nice contrast to the more bombastic fare now dominating the dancehall charts.
