Format: Audio CD
BUSHMAN is often compared to Luciano or Dennis Brown, however accurate this may be; these comparisons are unfair because they don't emphasize his own talent. BUSHMAN has versatility and a vocal range that, to these ears, surpasses those to whom he is often compared. His husky, resonant baritone voice can swoop and soar far beyond the clouds.
BUSHMAN is one of my favorite artists. His debut album, "NYAH MAN CHANT" is always finding its way on to my CD player. Critics have praised his first release and went absolutely crazy over his second release, "TOTAL COMMITMENT."
On his third release, 2000's "A BETTER PLACE," BUSHMAN struggles to maintain the potential promised on his first 2 albums. Unfortunately, BUSHMAN along with the British production team, Stingray, doesn't deliver the goods. "A BETTER PLACE" is not a bad album, but when compared to his last two releases, it just doesn't stand up.
From listening to the first few bars of the opening track, "LOVE WILL TURN YOU AROUND," I was aware that BUSHMAN was stretching himself thin by attempting to appeal to a larger market. This non-dancehall, weak attempt at R&B is both smarmy and disappointing. Track 2, "DOESN'T MATTER" is only a slight improvement, with its subject matter concerning the healing power of music. The song is dancehall but the only thing it has in common with reggae is the snare drum accenting the 3rd beat of each measure.
It was not until I first heard the 3rd track on the album; "GANGSTER LIFE" was I reminded of why BUSHMAN is a brilliant artist. It takes "GANGSTER LIFE" to kick start the album.
