Editorial Reviews

2008 Reggae-influenced album from the long serving rapper. Heavy D is best known for fronting Rap group Heavy D & The Boyz, the first music group signed to Uptown Records in the late 80's. On Vibes, the D goes back to his roots which takes you to his birthplace of Jamaica. Currently Heavy D's single, 'Long Distance Girlfriend,' is stated to be the most requested Reggae song since it's release. ''You can't fake this stuff,'' says Hev. ''I learned a long time ago you go with the music that's in your heart or you don't go at all.''

Finally, the long-awaited reggae CD from the Bum-Diddlee-D and it doesn't disappoint! This is true reggae not that americanized Dancehall! This CD is a throwback to the days of Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Jimmy Cliff! Heavy is from the Islands so he is not fakin' Jamaican! He's singing through the entire CD and is doing a very good job. From start to finish the Cd is banging! My favorites are: Queen Majesty and My Love Is All I Have. A true reggae classic!

Many people don't know that Heavy D is actually Jamaican. His family like many West Indians relocated to the East Coast.

I enjoyed Heavy D's rapping. But, THIS Cd "Vibes" is his BEST effort to date in my opnion. From beginning to end, the disc just produces tracks that make you feel, move and react.There is a certain pride one feels when listening to Caribbean music.

"Long Distance Girlfriend" is a great, great track, along with "Queen Majesty" and "No Matter What." Heavy D has just as smooth a singing voice as his rapping was many years ago. He gives us a gentle Jamaican tinged accent when singing. I LOVE this Cd! Whenever it plays in my house, it's on repeat. Kudos to Heavy D. Can't wait for his next Reggae Cd. Big Ups to this Caribbean King!

I bought this upon hearing of the death of Heavy D and wanted to listen to his cultural music. The CD was in great, yes great shape. And I actually love the music. RIP Heavy D.

It almost seems as if sometimes reggae music becomes somewhat of a `refuge' for artists (and sometimes not-so-artists) seeking a new start in their careers, their lives or whatever else they may have going on at the time. Besides what you typically see with artists of varying genres blending their own styles with reggae `vibes' (which isn't necessarily a bad thing always) , you have some of the most RANDOM situations occurring with individuals seemingly seeking to satisfy their own `curiosity' (for lack of a better phrase) as to just what they may sound like making reggae music. Case and point, a few years back you started seeing stories and rumours of the MOST unlikely of names making reggae, Hollywood action movie star, Steven Seagal! He was said to be working with some of the top names of the business and wasn't just to be reaching with a song or even two; no, Seagal's intention was in fact to release an album. The result of that was 2005's Songs From the Crystal Cave, which did in fact features names like Lieutenant Stitchie, legend Tony Rebel and even dancehall Empress Lady Saw (on the. . . downright odd Strut). The bluesy/popsy/reggae hybrid was far from my tastes, however many people actually enjoyed it. And then not too long ago was the word of none other than Paris Hilton who full on released a reggae-tinged single from her forthcoming album (which I THINK was named after her). While all of these (and trust me, many many more examples) speak to the popularity of reggae as well its overall accessibility perhaps, none of these cases, nor similar ones actually did anything for the vibes.Read more ›

I have always been a huge fan of Heavy D (and the Boyz). I was impressed by this album. He really shows his roots here. This is a great reggae album. I don't know why it took him so long to make it, but I'm very glad he did!

I was completely shocked. I normally buy single songs off of cds now, because as one reviewer noted, nowadays it's a rarity to find a cd you can listen to from beginning to end. this one is smooth from start to finish. love it, and i'm not a huge fan of the genre. But when I heard snipets of each song, I knew this was a must own.

I've been a fan of Heavy's from back to "Black coffee" and "got me waiting". I thought he's never really been appreciated by mainstream hip hop, but the true hip hop world appreciates his work. this is a great cd and shows the talent that he has.

This album was different and fun. Some of the songs start to sound alike, but overall I was pleased with it. Especially " No matter what" and "long distance lover" I am a big Sizzla fan and "Private dancer" is good. But I think the best song is Delilah.You can play this whole cd thru and that is always a plus. Big ups to Heavy D for bringing the Fiyah. Too bad not too many are aware of this album. Heavy needed more publicity.
