Various Artists Roots Tonic A Lead
- Words: Sabrina Ford
- Label: Hi-Score
This two-riddim compilation features new and previously released tracks from Sizzla, Lady Saw, Luciano, and Junior Kelly. More than half the songs are based on 2004's Leader riddim while the remaining ones coast on the Roots Tonic riddim. The highlight of the album is Lady Saw's Leader-based "Too Abusive," a tale told from the perspective of a battered woman who finally finds the strength to leave her abuser. Full of tracks to dance or sit back and chill to, this album is a must-buy.
