Rasta firebrand Anthony B made his name at Star Trail, the pioneering dancehall label run by his former manager, Richard Bell, but much subsequent material has been patchy. Now Mr. B is back on track with a cracking new album, tastefully produced by Frenchie of Maximum Sound. There‘s a strong new take on Ini Kamoze‘s “World A Music” (made famous by Damien “Jr. Gong” Marley‘s ‘05 global smash “Welcome To Jamrock”) and good guest spots from Ras Shiloh and the ubiquitous Jah Cure, but what really makes this album work so well is that B‘s topical lyrics are ably matched by Frenchie‘s rough rhythms, cut at various JA and UK studios.
