Editorial Reviews

The highest selling dancehall and Grammy Award wining artist Shaggy returns with his 6th album, Clothes Drop. In his extraordinary career, he's done several rounds of major heavy lifting for his brand of music, helping to stake, and even re-build, the global profile of dancehall reggae over the last decade and more. The first worldwide reggae crossover record to come out of the New York dancehall underground was Shaggy's 'Oh Carolina'. Then, his platinum album and single Boombastic came at a time when the early fusion of hip-hop and computer-style dancehall was well past its creative peak. More recently, Shaggy recorded the most successful dancehall reggae album in history, the 10-million plus selling Hot Shot. Clothes Drop is a non-stop boomshot of an album, a varied and invigorating explosion of tough rhythms, with Shaggy's unique rough-and-smooth toasts devoted to music, women, fun, and even, at the appropriate moment, the spirit. MCA. 2005.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beware, falling clothes September 20, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Dancehall's favorite Boombastic Angel is back with another scorching sizzler, and with a collection of hot guest artistes to boot. This is the sixth studio album from the Jamaica-born Orville Richard Burrell (nice name change Shaggy) the guy who gave us "Oh Carolina"; "Boombastic"; "It Wasn't Me"; and "Angel", among others.

From the time I put this album on, I started hitting the dance floor, which was a bit hard to pull off as I happened to be at the office at the time. Fortunately, there were other folk similarly addicted, including the boss. I'm pretty sure it's illegal to dock somebody's pay for dancing to Shaggy during office hours anyway.

"Clothes Drop" starts with a steel pan intro, and erupts into something sounding like an adult Dub version of "Candyman" from Willy Wonka. The next song is the dancehall ready "Ready Fi Di Ride", a rude dance track; followed by "Broadway" which samples "Tribal Natty" with its "I'm broad, I'm broad, I'm broader than Broadway" hook, and it never sounded better.

Next up is the first single "Wild 2Nite" featuring Olivia of G-Unit, followed by "Back in the Days" with old pal Rayvon; and the excellent "Supa Hypnotic" with Nicole Scherzinger of the red hot Pussycat Dolls.

He takes it down a notch with the reggae ballad "Would You Be" with Brian Gold, encourages us to "Stand Up", and then lo and behold, he preaches to us in "Repent" which is one of my favorites on the album thanks to the background vocals and chorus.

And there are more great tracks too - like "Ultimatum"; "Shut Up and Dance" with Will I Am of the Black Eyed Peas; and "Don't Ask Her That" a funny track, once again with Nicole Scherzinger.

Depending which version you have, there are some bonus tracks too, and the UK version has a whopping FIVE extra tracks.

This is one of my favorite new albums, and one I have been playing non-stop for hours.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Superb!!! September 29, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is another wicked album from Shaggy. It had me rocking from start to finish! I really like all the tracks on the album. For me the main stand out tracks were:

Clothes Drop(really like the beat);

Ready for the Ride; Broadway (this is my second favourite track -the Barrington Levy sample is wicked!);

Wild 2nite (Olivia from G-Unit charms this one up!);

The 2 combinations with Nicole Scherzinger, Supa Hypnotic & Don't Ask Her That, are both fun songs with cool beats;

Stand Up, Gone With Angel and Repent convey great messages;

Love Me Up(Nice beat and well written);

Ultimatum is a pretty cool laid back R&Bish song;

Shut Up and Dance delivers (as is often the case with the Black Eyed Peas' work);

Ahead In Life (my favourite song!! It's hilarious!! Guess what he's talking about? I think this is on par with the big hit It Wasn't Me!!!);

Road Block (sweet song; great to hear Rik Rok again!); and

Letter to My Kids is a really cool little song with an even cooler beat.

I am sure the music lover will enjoy this album. It's a must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING!!! September 21, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is my favorite Shaggy cd. I have all of his other cds and I've been waiting for this one for 3 years. Now that it's here, I couldn't be more satisfied. I have the version with 17 songs. My favorite song is Gone With Angels, which isn't on this version. There are great tracks on this album. My favorites are Clothes Drop, Repent, Back in the Days, and Letter to my Kids. There are upbeat songs and slower songs that show his softer side. He is truly a talented man.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shaggy!! October 2, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Well, finally Shaggy has dropped another album. One of the three most highly anticipated reggae albums of 2005 (the other two being Sean Paul's THE TRINITY and Jr. Gong's WELLCOME TO JAMROCK), Shaggy's Clothes Drop uses the usual mix of reggae and lovers rock-like elements(read R&B) to create a wonderful mix that will please any of his fans. A big plus for this album is that the songs are mostly original (i.e. no sampling of other artiste's music). The only song that employs Shaggy's (former??) trade mark of sampling is Broadway, which is done in such a way that it is more like a "combination" rather than sampling. Having said all this, lets talk about Clothes Drop. In my opinion, the best song here is "Would You Be" which features Tony Gold. It has a Maxi Priest-like timeless quality that makes it such a wicked tune (a potential single). "Broadway" is also a good song, which utilizes the "owner" of the tune, Mr. Barrington Levy, to great effect. Other highlights on Clothes Drop include "Supa Hypnotic" (a potential single) and "Don't Ask Her That", both wicked combinations with Nicole Scherzinger of the Pussy Cat Dolls, "Luv Mi Up" - a great song with a little old-school flavour, the tongue-in-cheek and extremely funny "Ahead In Life", "Wild 2Nite" with Olivia, and "Road Block" with the talented Rik Rok.
I gave the album only four stars for a few reasons: First, the ordering of the songs. The "conscious" tracks should have been placed at the end (like Shaggy has done in the past). Second, the album would have been tighter with only about 15 tracks.
Nonetheless, Clothes Drop is a good purchase. Success will depend on what Shaggy will select as the next single. Overall, I am happy with the purchase and I WOULD SUGGEST YOU GO GET IT!!
