Warrior King Hold The Faith
- Words: Araya Crosskill
- Label: VP
On Hold the Faith, Warrior King talks up his Bible-derived spirituality so often he wouldn‘t seem out of place in Bush‘s White House. But it‘s not the Rasta evangelism or the mediocre production that annoys-rather, it‘s WK‘s penchant for mind-numbing clichés. On "Education" he chants "Silver and gold will vanish away, but a good education will always stay." It‘s such less-than-rigorous writing that finds him unable to give us another "Virtuous Woman," 2001‘s sensational career-launching single. Unfortunately, Hold the Faith is not just an album title, but also an instruction to fans awaiting the next transcendent reggae talent.
