Editorial Reviews

In 1993, when Shaggy successfully reworked the Prince Buster ska classic "Oh Carolina," he was on the cusp of creating a hot, new ska/pop fusion. Unfortunately, he opted to become a pop-reggae novelty act like Snow. Shaggy's fourth album certainly won't win over new fans or appeal to reggae purists and Capleton enthusiasts, but that's fine by him. While there are no immediate club anthems in the "Boombastic" or "Oh Carolina" vein, Shaggy's coarse vocal delivery shines on the sweet, Latin-music-inspired "Chica Bonita." Likewise, "Not Fair"--where he boasts that he'll take a woman "to the clouds without going downtown"--has Hit Single written all over it. On the downside, Shaggy's rap-reggae flow doesn't match the production values of the R&B production duo Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. On "Lonely Lover," Shaggy and Next's T-Lo bastardize a classic Main Ingredient song, while on "Dance and Shout," he distorts the Michael Jackson legacy by sampling "Shake Your Body (Down to the Ground)." --Dalton Higgins

Shaggy, as most people know by now, was dropped by his record label when his last album bombed. What a great comeback story this young man has written by coming up with an album that placed him on top of the Billboard 200 album chart. He did this after his album had been out for over 20 weeks. That is almost unheard of today considering that most of the time when a new album is released, it debuts at #1. You are not going find anything innovative on this album. Shaggy whether he is rapping or singing or he's just in the background, gives the listener a wide variety of songs to enjoy. Hotshot, the title track and first track, showcases his underrated rapping skills. Dance and Shout cleverly borrows a groove from the Jackson 5. Angel does this one better: it samples Steve Miller's classic, The Joker, and it contains interpolations of that classic gem by Juice Newton, Angel of the Morning. Clearly, this is one of the best songs on the album and a former #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart which was even more impressive considering Shaggy never released a CD single version of this song. Hope is an uplifting song that has been used in a show on HBO. Luv Me, Luv Me first appeared on the How Stella Got Her Groove Back Soundtrack CD with Janet Jackson singing the background part. Unfortunately, Shaggy changes it a little bit by getting a woman named Samantha Cole to sing this part. Although no Janet Jackson, she still does a good job. It Wasn't Me was the other big hit also going to number #1. This is probably my favorite song--I love it when Ducent sings "She even caught me on camera" and you can hear Shaggy sorta grunt in the background!Read more ›

So I'm driving to the 7-11 in the family van (I'm a 50 year old dad y'see) and I turn on the radio. The station is where the kids left it. I hear "It Wasn't Me" booming outta the speaker...only this time I didn't think *oh no...more of that repetitive rap...* Nope. Whatta tune. I'm boppin' and flowin' and just sorta tranced out listening to the thing...I get to the store and I keep listening till the song is over and the DJ says who it is. Next day I'm in the store picking the CD up...and I love this stuff. Only until now I don't figger I care much about reggae and I really don't know squat about hip-hop. I mean I mostly like Vince Gill and Hall and Oates and Jeff Beck and Gene Autry type stuff. Well...I care now. Time to get educated. Thanks, Shaggy. I don't care how old you are or what you think of rap and hip-hop and reggae...get this CD and *get* this CD.

I bought this album when it first came out because I looked at the tracklist and saw that I already knew and loved a ton of songs on it. The rest of the album was definitely not a disappointment either. Shaggy is awesome and very funny, perhaps without even trying to be. Here are the tracks: 1. HOTSHOT: This is a pretty good song. It's good to open the album up but definitely not one of my favorites. 2. LONELY LOVER: This song is so good!!! It really flows nicely and Shaggy's singsongy rap style is very cool. This is a really cool, mellow track. 3. DANCE & SHOUT: Michael Jackson's voice flows very nice in this party starter of a song. It's very good, and is a single so most of you guys probably have heard it. 4. LEAVE IT TO ME: This is a nice, kind of mellow love song. Shaggy sings in this one more than he raps. 5. ANGEL: I love this song!! The sample works VERY well in the context of Shaggy's album. A classic song, updated in a classy way. Very reggae feeling. 6. HOPE: I don't know why this song wasn't all that popular as a single. It is really good. The lyrical content of this song is excellent. It's upbeat and catchy. 7. KEEP'N IT REAL: This is a cool, jazzy sort of song. Shaggy knows how to make a really catchy song. He's a talented singer as well as a rapper. 8. LUV ME, LUV ME: I was very disappointed that this wasn't the version where Janet Jackson sings the chorus. I love Janet, but this song's still good and uses a very catchy sample. 9. FREAKY GIRL: This is more of a standard r&b song but Shaggy just seems to make it sound so classy and vintage. 10. IT WASN'T ME: This has always been my favorite song, even though it looks as if it'll be overplayed on the radio now that it's a single. This will be a huge hit for Shaggy, and will still probably be my favorite. It's very funny! 11.Read more ›

If you are like you are probably wondering..."Is this CD good or will I buy a CD and yet again only like a couple of songs on it?" Well let me tell you, BUY THE CD! Before I purchased the CD I had only heard "Angel" and "It wasn't me" and thought they were good. I caught off guard by how good the ENTIRE CD was. From the first song to the last you will rock, glide and groove with the hits. Shaggy does a great job of sampling old hits and adding his distinct flavor. If you thought "Angel" and "It wasn't me" were good, then the CD only gets better. I haven't turned the radio on for the past two weeks because I have been listening to Shaggy. It is rare today to find a CD that goes beyond the one hit single and deliver a total product that is worth buying. But Shaggy has managed to please fans and convert new ones like myself.
