Although I have not heard "Lean on Me" on any of their previous CD's, I can tell you this CD Will not be a letdown. I own their previous 4 releases, Unity, Wake Up, Free Up, and Resistance. Their music has not yet disappointed me. They have a cool blend of swingin' reggae style, and the vocal stylings of Quino (the lead singer) are excellent. Buy it! Improve your outlook on life! I know they are some of the best music you can listen to when you're depressed.

Wow! I am still blown away by this album. I have been a big fan since WAKE UP first hit the CD racks, but this "best of" compilation is easily greater than the sum of it's parts. This is my third time to purchase this album. It seems to be the the first one to "disappear" from my collection during spring break. If you are not familiar with Big Mountain, this is a great stepping stone. There are several reggae-ized cover songs like Peter Frampton's "Baby, I Love Your Way" that should sound cheesey, but actually never sounded better. You'd think this was the original version, not a remake. The original tunes are pure and solid. Big Mountain is a strange and wonderful blend of raw reggae & uplifting melodies. The music is honest and positive, but true to it's roots. No fluff here, just a great outlook on life.

One of a few of this genre I purchased to play as background music for an "Island Style" wine and cheese party at my home. This is the CD guests wanted the name of to buy for themselves. Have to admit, it's become one of my favorites and is played often.

Occasionally I like cover versions of songs as much as, or even better than, the originals, e.g. All Along the Watchtower by Jimi Hendrix, and We Can Work It Out by Stevie Wonder. Big Mountain's version of Baby I Love Your Way is in this category and I bought this CD after hearing that song on the radio, not expecting to find other songs I liked as much as that one. (I don't know how many CDs I own which have only one song I really like.) Well I was astonished to find 3 other songs I liked even more - Get Together, I Would Find A Way, and All Kinds Of People. The other songs are good too. Top musicians, smooth grooves - and no worries on lyrics for the little ones either. All reggae lovers should buy this CD.

I thought I would not care for this (I never heard any of their stuff on the radio, and I generally like my reggae to be a little more rootsy) but I am have to say I am enjoying it quite a lot. Basically a good selection of popular covers, given the commercial reggae treatment. So very much like UB40's big hits - listenable and danceable. I am now annoyed with myself for not going and seeing Big Mountain when they came through town recently.

What people don't realize, is that Big Mountain ushered in a new genre. They infused pop melodies with reggae rhythm on clean, mastered recordings. Whether you have heard of this band or not, heard of this cd or not, I suggest you buy it now! You won't be disappointed!!
