BUJU BANTON

RASTA GOT SOUL

2009-04-13

BUJU BANTON RASTA GOT SOUL Buju Banton has bee considered one of the pioneers of Jamaican dancehall reggae music. He has often been criticized for his graphic sexual and homophobic lyrics. This disc finds Buju delivering a captivating set of traditional and some dancehall tracks that explore his more conscious and spiritual side. The music on this CD is certainly meant to lift your spirits but leaves room to still get sinful on the dance floor. Buju also receives help from Wyclef Jean on the track Bedtime Story a story that would leave any child with nightmares as it is a story of a Childs father being murdered. The track “Sense of Purpose” is a dancehall love track featuring the great reggae band Third World. The Rastafarian religion has certainly provided Buju Banton with the soul to deliver his finest work to date. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
