I'll just get to the point; this CD was a waste of time. First of all it covers a period only 3 records: Alms House (1 track), Prophecy (3 tracks), & the weak I-Testament (6 tracks). There is a mediocre 1993 single thrown in, which leads me to the second problem - only 11 tracks. The Prophet's work really began to soar in the late '90's, after the covered period, so most of the best was yet to come(& is still coming!). Despite this, there are some really good tracks here: Alms House & anything off of Prophecy ('Leave Babylon' still gvz me goosebumps affa all deez yrs). You are, however, wasting your time if you buy this CD even if you have no Capleton at all. I recommend starting out with Prophecy - 12 Amazing tracks with 3 re-mixes to boot. Dis will get yo' fiyah burnin'.

Capleton is one of the very few artists that seem to get better as his career goes along. That's not to say that this album which catches the prophet in the middle of his career is not a good album. The Best of Capleton showcases Capleton in his earlier post rude-boy status, and really has some of his better tracks of the time. The album's best is easily Tour, which besides Who Dem? might be my favorite Prophet song. Also check Almshouse (his actual conversion tune), Old and Young, Wings of the Morning, Leave Babylon and of course Babylon a Use Dem Brain with Kalonji from the Black Woman & Child album. By the way the tune "Leave Babylon has one of the wickedest hooks I've heard in a long time, but that is one of Capleton's strengths, see How it Ago from Still Blazin' and Twist and Turn from the underground Brickwall album Forces of Nature (an album with Sizzla). Overall, I say for the price, you can't beat this one with a bat, very very good cuts, even the sleeve is good, offers a great overview of Capleton's career. I'd recommend this one to maybe newer fans: older fans will probably know every tune by heart.

I am a big Capleton fan, but I was disappointed with the selection of songs that were chosen for this 'Best of' CD. I know Capleton has many full length CDs out with some great selections on them. Out of all the tunes that were selected for this collection, I like about 3-5 songs. I was a bit disappointed with this CD.
