Various Artists Triumphant Rhythm
- Words: Tomas Palermo
- Label: Greensleeves
Produced by Kenmar "DJ Flava" McGregor with nyabinghi drums by Bongo Herman, this acoustic-tinged modern roots set is lead by Gyptian's chart-topping maternal ode "Mama," which proves his elastic soprano is capable of more than one major hit. Other surprises come from Perfect, whose "Shoulda Neva" showcases an explosive tonal range, and sweet lovers rock is delivered handily by Ras Shiloh, Thriller U, and Lukie D. Triumphant is more for DJs than home listeners-the album drags after six or seven numbers-and for a riddim centered around a song praising mothers, the absence of female contributors is inexplicable."
