Editorial Reviews

Sounding very much like the voice of young conscious Jamaica, 23-year-old Warrior King mashes up the set on his debut album. Like many reggae youths, Warrior King began his career with a bristling hardcore style, mimicking his favorite DJ of the day, the relentlessly gruff Bounty Killa. But as a Rastafarian consciousness developed in him on into his adult years, Warrior favored the "singjay" style for a more emotively striking and message-oriented brand of music. The reggae community exalted the young vocalist after a pair of terrific singles ("Virtuous Woman" and "Never Go Where Pagans Go") ran roughshod through the dancehall in late 2001 and on into 2002. On the strength of these tremendously fresh-sounding cuts, a heavy buzz surrounded the artist, but no album appeared to be in the works. Finally, after nearly a year of anticipation, Virtuous Woman dropped in October of 2002. Melodic and popular "riddims" provided by Sheldon "Calibud" Stewart, Richard "Shams" Browne, Lion Paw, and Penthouse as well as flavorful live instrumentation from the Firehouse Crew combine exceedingly well for the young Warrior's incantations. While his lyrics (co-written throughout by Stewart) are ostensibly preachy, the artists' voice has an innocent quality to it, as if he is simply a humble mouthpiece pouring forth blessings from a higher source. This is not gospel music, though the format is one of social and spiritual awareness aided by the eminent power of modern reggae's soulful take on rhythm & blues. The essence here is one of "upfulness" and the wisdom of the ancients is displayed poetically and pleasingly on tracks such as "Rough Road" and "Jah Is Always There." The message of love, whether in the form of relationships or the simple "love thy neighbor" adage, proliferates on the album, as tracks like "Health and Strength," "It's Been a While," and "Empress Divine" will attest. The obligatory mother tribute "Oh Mama" is heartfelt but a little too intimate and a remake of Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On," while justifiably sound, is a bit much. Overall, a highly recommend album for fans of conscious reggae. ~ M.F. DiBella, All Music Guide

Format: Audio CD
Since the day this record came out it has been in rotation in my players. WK's vocal's are some of the best in the business but he doesn't over-do it like he so clearly could if he wanted. His writing ability is exactly right where it should be at this stage of his career, and his choice of tracks is as well. The best track here in my humble estimation is Health ad Strength, it's vibe just does it for me, an amazing tune it is, also of course like the opener, which took people by storm when they first heard it, despite never officially being released as a single, Power to Chant. Of course the 2 previous singles were fantastic in the title cut, and Never Go Where Pagans Go, check Breath of Fresh Air as well as it sounds perfect here as does Oh Mama with underrated dub poet DYCR.
Warrior King fits in perfectly as probably the young artist with the most potential all around in cultural roots reggae music. Artists such as Warrior King, Jah Cure, Turbulence and Lutan Fyah represent an up and coming talent pool much much deeper than the future of its brother dancehall (although future stars such as Vybez Cartel, and Assassin are no slouches at all) and hopefully those artists can break into the world view as dancehall has done, albums like Virtuous Woman, Ghetto Life (Jah Cure), A Different Thing (Turbulence) and especially Friends for Life (Legend Buju Banton) are certainly more than a good start. AMAZING! GO GET IT!

Format: Audio CD
i recently picked up warrior king's virtuous woman and think that it was a good find. his vocal quality is among the best that i have heard. the songs are powerful and inspiring. they touch upon the core of reality, which is our humanity. i really want to give this album a five but think that if i do, it would be hard to judge any of his upcoming albums because i would always use it(virtuous woman) as sole criterion when judging the others. as i mentioned, all the songs are good but i am a big fan of the following: power to chant, never go where pagans go, africa shall be free, education is key,virtuous woman, oh mama, and what's going on. the lattr is a remake of the marvin gaye classic. warrior king also big up black women, a population in our society and the world that do not always get the recoginition that they deserve, on the album. go out and get it. it is truly refreshing.
