Album Review

When Collie Buddz's debut single, "Come Around," came around, it catapulted this unknown white Bermudian into the Jamaican dance hall charts by first conquering Europe and then making an impression on American urban radio. It usually doesn't work like that, but this "Legalize It" for the Beenie Man and Akon generation was so instantly infectious and gloriously speaker-rumbling that the sometimes fickle JA dancehall massive had to let this outsider in. With his debut album, Buddz proves he deserves it. This is partially due to the way he rides the seemingly impossible jumble of genres his showcase of a debut throws at him. The Shakira-flavored "Mamacita" lives a couple doors down from the bravado-driven street track "Defend Your Own" featuring rapper Krayzie Bone, while further down the road there's the righteous roots number "Let Me Know," produced by the tasteful choice of reggae stalwart Bobby Konders. Then there's the David Bowie "Let's Dance" sample that figures into the wicked ragga of "My Everything" and the almost too polished and pop "Tomorrow's Another Day," which could have been pure syrup in someone else's hands. Wherever the music goes, Buddz is always Buddz, with island soul and convincing delivery, like a more punkish Sean Paul with traces of Anthony B. and Damien Marley. His lyrics are right there, too, be it a swaggering club track or a plaintive plea for social justice. This ambitious whirlwind falls into place after a couple listens as any lack of focus is forgotten, thanks to the many great tunes and the exciting, hungry, and extremely talented man who anchors it all.

Neo Reggae is Alive

Collie is the latest to bring this Neo Reggae style. Collie is on the same level as Jr. Gong and Stephen Marley. And his passion is so apparent in his lyrics! You have to get this album. Collie has the Bay Area bumpin his S#@T!!!

Impressed!

I'm not one to exaggerate, but this is one of the best albums i've heard in awhile, in any genre of music. It's diverse, it has Reggae, Dancehall, and some Soca. "Come Around", "Blind to You", "Tomorrow's Another Day", "Mamacita", "Movin' On", and "Let Me Know" are all hot. Personally, I could do without Krayzie Bone and Paul Wall. Don't misunderstand me, I love Hip-Hop, but they have no place on this album. Overall, this is a good purchase. You won't be upset.

Dopest reggae album since Jamrock.

This album is amazing. Collie Buddz is going to be huge! He is able to show great variety in his songs throughout the album and be at the top of his game on all of them. "Blind to You" is crazy sick. Amazing beat!

Biography

Born: 1982 in Bermuda

Genre: Reggae

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Born in New Orleans but raised in Bermuda, dancehall singer Collie Buddz was entranced by the urban music of his island home. He favored dancehall the most, but soca and hip-hop were important too, all of which exploded out the speakers of his DJ brother. His brother was also involved in recording Collie's demo track, "Come Around," an infectious song that blew up in Europe and topped the charts in the U.K. before it came to Jamaica. As the marijuana anthem was climbing the JA charts all the way...
