Review

Review Text Strictly the Best #24 is a must-have for fans of classic lover's rock and roots reggae. Overflowing with swaying melodies and soothing lyrics, this album radiates with Jamaican sunshine. Jamaican musicians' talent for ingeniously covering American hits is legendary, and there are plenty of examples here, from Sanchez and Richie Stephens' goosebump-inducing version of Luther Vandross' "There's Nothing Better Than Love," Tony Curtis' skilled improvement on Tyrese's "Sweet Lady," and even Ghost's corny cover of Cher's "Believe." But the standout is Terry Linen's exquisite take on Whitney Houston's "My Love Is Your Love." Of course, there's also a hearty supply of originals, including Morgan Heritage's intoxicating "Reggae Road Block" and Luciano's virtuoso performance of "Save the World." ~ Rosalind Cummings-Yeates
