Album Review

The 10 cuts on this CD aren't among Cocoa Tea's more compelling, even though they're lyrically more uplifting and diversified than some tunes that have been hits. Tea sings with clarity and passion, although he lacks the tonal quality, range or conviction of the great lover's rock or rockers-style vocalists. Junjo Lawes' production juggles contemporary and classic devices, although the synthesized/computerized underpinning and overall sensibility lean toward current tastes. The better selections, "Can't Keep A Good Man Down" and "No Wanted Man," are well delivered and more convincing than the love/romantic ballads, on which Tea doesn't pass muster. Overall, it's a decent set, but hardly one of Ras's best.

Tea was born Calvin Scott on September 3, 1959, in Rocky Point, a small town in Jamaica's Clarendon parish....
