Greensleeves releases the 2007 version of The Biggest Reggae One-Drop Anthems and once again, it’s a great, easy way to hear some of the nicest conscious tunes of this year. The first track in the lineup is “People’s Choice” by Ray Darwin. This is a killer tune on the Mean Girl Riddim (Studio One). I personally have been hypin this track up since I first heard it a while back. Next is another boom tune called “Rastafari Anthem” by Alborosie. This is on the Last War Riddim, which should be very familiar to any reggae listener, since this is the same riddim that Collie Buddz’ track “Come Around” rides. The next favorite on this sampler is Mr Easy’s track called “Strangest Thing”. The track is a great addition to the many anthems out there that biggup the international herb.
All in all, this album is a nice compilation of what’s been happening on the conscious reggae scene for 2007. There are definitely some tracks that I would have personally nixed, but no compilation can make every listener happy.
Again, do yourself a favor….go out and buy this one.
