Reggae On The Move
This originally ran in the St. Louis Post Dispatch in 1992
Yellowman, once the King of reggae DJ's, continues his
downward slide with another poor release, this one entitled
"Reggae On The Move."
The majority of songs are lackluster, with none of the
"bite" that characterized this Albino Jamaican's earlier,
and best, material. To his credit, he does give us a few
catchy tunes, but the production is weak, his "slack" (or
dirty) lyrics are lame, and his delivery is nonchalant.
It was only one decade ago that Yellowman burst on the
scene and released classic after classic track. He dominated
the stage as well, working crowds better than any DJ around
(I recently saw him in Jamaica and he still puts on a good
show). His recent recordings, though, are simply stale,
boring, and have nothing outstanding to offer.
"Reggae On The Move" isn't the worst thing out there,
but believe me, there's not a song on this release that
should ever land on any "greatest hits" package. Stay away
