Various Artists Reggae Hits 34

Volume 34 of this ongoing series is strong on quality, featuring "Imagination," Beenie Man, and Devonte‘s sprightly re-cut of the "Everybody Needs Love" rhythm, newcomer Fantan Mojah‘s pertinent "Hungry," Hero‘s moving "Ina De Ghetto," Turbulence‘s hip-hop infused "Notorious," rising star Mr. Perfect‘s "Handcart Boy," Sizzla‘s heartfelt "Ain‘t Gonna See Us Fall," and the inspired "Unconditional Love" from German toaster Gentleman. The rest, though, is a confusing mixed bag of slushy love songs, gospel reggae, and hardcore ragga. A bonus CD has great highlights from earlier issues, tracing hits from Sugar Minott‘s "Herbman Hustling" to Buju‘s cut of "Ring The Alarm."
