Jah Words is Jamaican singer Luciano‘s 31st album since his 1995 debut. Luciano lyrically crucifies the shitstem over one-drop beats, maintains vocal superiority over his peers, and tells us he‘s here to save us all: "Don‘t you know I‘m here to uplift the human race/Come along and take your place." ("Are You With Me"). When not proclaiming himself music‘s messiah he‘s covering Bob Dylan ("Knockin‘ On Heaven‘s Door"), and singing R&B-influenced love songs ("Angel Heart"). Still, Jah Words is mostly rasta-inspired evangelism-it‘s not for nothing that Luciano‘s fans call him The Messenger. At least it‘s sermonizing you can blaze up to.
