Album Review

Can't Stop a Man collects some of Beres Hammond's biggest Jamaican hits, beginning with his first, "One Step Ahead" from 1976, a song produced by Willie Lindo. Moving chronologically through to 2003's sweet and infectious "Dancehall Vibes," which features Big Youth and is one of the highlights here, this two-disc set is a wonderful introduction to this woefully underappreciated singer and writer. With a voice that combines Marvin Gaye's subtle phrasing, Sam Cooke's easy charm, and the soulful power of a David Ruffin, Hammond has a talent for graceful, easy-flowing lovers rock, but he has also effortlessly managed to work light dancehall and hip-hop elements into his work, giving him an uncommon longevity in the ever-shifting sea of styles that is the trademark of Jamaican music. Key tracks here include "Last War," "Who Say" (with Buju Banton),"Sugar You Want," and "Rockaway," a fond reminiscence of the island's roots era. Lovingly packaged, Can't Stop a Man includes track-by-track annotation and discussion.

The Hits are endless.The Most underated Reggae singer, possibly of all times.

His voice is liquid gold!!! This collection is unstoppable. If you are a fan, the hits are all right here so look no further! Alot of my personal favs are some of the older tunes. Like "what one dance can do" "she loves me now".& "Come Back Home".You'll Never get tired Of and Goodies like "Rockaway", Full attention. and Tempted To touch. This a good album to introduce an audience who has never heard BERES :)

Nonstop consciousness...

Pure ole skool reggae with flavor from some of the best and most lasting contributors to the genre: U-Roy, Marcia Griffiths, Buju B... pure niceness! Here you will enjoy some tight Studio One riddims anchoring powerful social commentary: From the timely "time we stop live like Israel and Lebanon... 'Aint it good to Know' that some old time enemies cease fire" to the loss of a lover in "I could beat myself". This album is full of inspiration and "Sweetness" ... One love and unity my people. Da one ya belong inna every CD collection. Check it!

One of the most underappreciated reggae artists of his time, Beres Hammond was something of a throwback during his '90s heyday: a soulful crooner indebted to classic rocksteady and American R&B, one who preferred live instrumentation and wrote much of his own material. Hammond specialized in romantic lovers rock, but he also found time to delve into light dancehall, conscious roots reggae, hip-hop fusion, and straight-up contemporary R&B. He was born Hugh Beresford Hammond on August 28, 1955,...
