Album Review

This may be the best album yet from deejay Carol East. Not only does she get to show off her facility with standard bouncy dancehall grooves, as on "Jamaican People" and the title track, but she also chats in a more rootswise context — "Ital Jacuzzi," which appears to be a charming ode to the pleasures of skinny-dipping, floats along on a booty-stirring one-drop groove. "I Am What I Am" is built on a solid rhythmic foundation of hip-hop/one-drop fusion, and "Mr. Moneyman" seems to share a melody with the Kenny Rogers hit "The Gambler," which is a nicely subtle touch, given the song's lyrical content.

(Strangely, the remixed "long version" of the title track is shorter than the regular version.)
