Product Description
 
When Buju Banton  emerged from the Kingston, Jamaica, slums in the early '90s, he stirred  controversy with a breed of dancehall steeped in the same obsessions with  gunplay, sexism, and homophobia that characterized hardcore American hip-hop.  But after converting to Rastafarianism and scratching to find more socially  conscious and deeply rooted music on 1993's  Voice of Jamaica, Banton  (born Mark Myrie) proved that his conscience and creative restlessness are  driven by more than mere commercial shrewdness on this album, his true  breakthrough. Banton sounds like a changed man from the get-go. The spiritually  uplifting title prologue segues into a chuckle and the resignation of "'Til I'm  Laid to Rest." While Banton ruminates on everything from love and spirituality   to geopolitics, his electro dancehall clich├ęs have largely given way to organic,  often spiritual music whose African influences are worn as a badge of honor.  Banton has been credited with reinventing dancehall here, and it's hard to argue  otherwise. His gruff voice bounds from its previous monotonous rap ruts into a  warm and joyous newfound expressiveness that lights up the infectious  "Murderer," the fatalistic "Not an Easy Road," and the party-time "Hush Baby  Hush" (a reworking of the  Zodiacs chestnut "Stay"). Banton even finds some folksy  resonance with the acoustic-guitar backed "Untold Stories." Guest vocalists  Garnett Silk  ("Complaint") and  Wayne Wonder ("What Ya  Gonna Do") add some contemporary R&B touches to Banton's already considerably  expanded sense of dynamics. This remastered reissue features three bonus cuts:  the B-sides "Rampage" and "Sensemilia Persecution" and a previously Jamaica-only  remix of "Champion."
