5.0 out of 5 stars An underated talent December 26, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio Cassette
Its a shame that when people hear the name Snow,the first thought that pops into theyre head is either Vannila Ice or 1 hit wonder.Because hes neither of those things.This guy does have some talent and this Cd proves it.He could go from soft rhymes to hardcore rhymes without missing a beat,and it takes real talent to do that.Which is more than i can say for 90% of the garbage that MTV plays now.Anyway check this cd out.My personal favorite is Lonely Monday Morning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Please Listen November 13, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
First off, Snow does not try to copy Vanilla Ice. Snow was given the name by MC Shan. If you know anything about him, it stands for Superb.Notorious.Outrageous.Whiteboy. So don't try to compare him with Vanilla Ice just because you think the names are similar!
Second, as far as him singing the lyrics "dibby-dibby", you should also know that it is not Snow that sings those lyrics. If you would have seen the video for Informer, you would have have noticed that. While Snow was in prison, the lyrics were added to it. He didn't know until after he got out and the single was already in circulation.
Now for the review. . . This CD has some of the best influential reggae stylings of that time. Because of Snow, the door was blown wide open for alot of other Reggae artists to make it to the main stream. It's got a good old "hip-hop, reggae, jazzy, kinda funky" feel to it! Snow was definitely ahead of his time. If you want a great CD to jam out to, this is the one to get!

4.0 out of 5 stars This was a hot album back then! September 19, 2004
By Preston
Format:Audio CD
Snow's 1993 album was very good, and funky on many levels! His merging of rap with reggae is very well done here. I still like Informer and Girl I've Been Hurt. But one of my favorites here is the ballad Hey Pretty Love, with its smooth sounds. Champion Sound and Lonely Sunday Morning are easily influenced by Bob Marley a little bit. This was a very addictive and catchy record back then and I'd still hear it again today!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Snow's Getting Deeper June 18, 2000
Format:Audio CD
The most worthwhile little piece of shiny plastic I have everspent ( ) on. Snow's dancehall-reggea ryhmes are seriously some ofthe greatest lyrical and vocal stylings ever.. in comparison to any genre of music. His incredibly articulate speed-rap fuses each line into a barrage of tongue twisting vocals. Lot's of catchy favorites on the album - among the best are Informer, Runway, Champion Sound, and Girl I've Been Hurt. Definitely a MUST HAVE for anyone craving fast pased ryhmes and an innovative style. Snow was an UNDERATED SUPERTALENT way ahead of his time. END

By A Customer

From the first time I heard Snow I realized my true destiny and that was to be the best dancer I could. His music inspires me to work harder and dance faster. From lunges to kicks I wish i could be snow's informer!

5.0 out of 5 stars 12" February 6, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The first SNOW album launched SNOW to stardum. The hit INFORMER held the #1 spot in the US for 12 weeks. INFORMER is good, but, suprisingly, is not the only high caliber song on the album. Songs like "Lady With The Red Dress," "Runway," and "Hey Pretty Love" are songs that could of held the billboard charts, also. SNOW proved his legitmacy and is by far not a "One-hit Wonder" that some would make him out to be!

4.0 out of 5 stars Deserves respect
Snow deserves more respect than he is given. He was a "one hit wonder" in the States but he was and still is a respected artist in Canada, Japan, and the Tropics. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Not terrible but not good either - this remains an "ok" reggae album
The only song people know by Snow (that is, *if* they even know who recorded it) is his hit single "Informer" from the early 90's. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Snow is GR8
People dislike SNOW because they think he is a wannabe. I think it is just jealousy. You try adapting R&B and reggae and pop all into 1 style. I think his music is ingenious. Read more
