4.0 out of 5 stars Same Ole, Same Ole June 22, 2004
By Achis
Format:Audio CD
Of course anytime Ras Records jumps up and releases an album by a quality artist like Sizzla Kalonji its worth a listen. Last year they shouted out with The Truth by Kalonji protege Turbulence, and the material on that one was very high, Jah Knows Best is no different.
The strangest thing about this album, is of course, track 3 Subterranean Homesick Blues which by virtue of its recording becomes Sizzla's first and only cover tune, here of a Bob Dylan track and its listenable, the flow on it is pretty different for a Sizzla track, but its entertaining nontheless. Interestingly enough however, my favorite track here, besides the (truly massive) title cut I Myself Know, which rides a classic hip-hop/r&b riddim, but the wording of the song is soooo powerful that it might have even been better as an accapella. The finisher here (literally) Jah Is Love is the typical Sizzla falsetto offering with the heavy nyah drum backing him, but its honestly one of the reasons that most of his fans fell in love with him, he sort of loses himself in his wording and seems at times to just speak from the heart, heavy Rasta tune, of course. Of course there's the obligatory dancehall portion of the album, the best of which is probably You World Leaders, but I like Move Up as well.
Overall, I might actually give this one the nod over his earlier effort from this year Speak of Jah. Its your typically high level offering from one of the best artists around and only he himself can top that.

4.0 out of 5 stars a few ace tracks January 22, 2006
By leo
Format:Audio CD
yes in recent years the quality control has slipped amongst the piles of SIzzla releases, (with some albums being entirely forgettable - Stay Focus for instance), but there are a few tunes on this number which are tip-top.

the Bob Dylan song (forget the name), done in a bright timbre blissed out dub sound, and the Rasta boy's pleading voice works perfectly - "you don't need the weatherman to know which way the wind blows" - indeed.

and the cross-over banger "Got It Going On" bumps righteous with a subtle egyptian keyboard line.

Sizzla has this strange habit of putting the same song on multiple CDs under different song titles. I know because I own his complete discography. For example, on "Jah Knows Best" the song "I Myself Know" also appears on the CD "Burning Fire" under the title "No Man Stand Alone". Do you know any other artist who engages in this practice? I don't.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best intro to sizzla.Still... July 5, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Not the best introduction to the man,but a fair to middle album by the ever prolific Sizzla.Seriously he churns out around 3 albums a year (on various labels) and ever since 'Words of Tryth' he's trod a rougher lyrical line and delivery.There are some quality roots rhythms present throughout and the version of 'Subterranean' is a highlight,however the more experimental musical aspects of the album (whilst interesting) don't do it for me and Sizzlas' gruff vocal can get a bit much after a while.One for collectors.If you're really keen to hear something fresh from Sizzla, full of inspired Roots,Reggae,Rightiousness and creative use of his vocal range... I'd recommend 'Speak of Jah'

while I did enjoy a few of the tracks on this albumn , I felt that overall it was a weak product , inferior to other albumns I've enjoyed by sizzla . . .I would recommend instead of this albumn either "bobo ashanti" or "da real thing" both by sizzla .
