With the dancehall electro-beats and obsession with violence and homophobia that characterized his earliest releases, the then-teenaged Buju Banton (born Mark Myrie of Salt Lane, Kingston) couldn't escape troubling parallels with some of his early '90s American hip-hop counterparts. But a conversion to the popular Jamaican cult of Rastafarianism--and crucially, this album--seemed to mark a dramatic turning point for both Banton's soul and his music. Indeed, he quickly turned from the gay-bashing "Boom Boom Bye Bye" to promoting AIDS awareness and condoms on this 1993 album's groundbreaking "Willy (Don't Be Silly)." But it takes considerably more than a (shrewdly?) reformed social conscience to make great reggae. Still leaning on the electro-heavy production of early '90s dancehall and relying on a repetitive, growling delivery that doesn't exactly break new ground for either rhythm or rhyme, Banton bullies his way through heart-on-the-sleeve consciousness-raising songs ("Deportees," "Willy," "No Respect," "Wicked Act"), more typical boasts ("Good Body"), and romance ("Red Rose," "Make My Day," "Commitment") alike. Still, listen closely and you'll hear some organic elements (and pop consciousness) seeping through the bluster, harbingers of his breakthrough 1995 album 'Til Shiloh. This remastered reissue features two bonus tracks ("Vigilante" and a dub-heavy remix of "Deportees") originally available as promotional-only singles. --Jerry McCulley

I purchased this CD after hearing "Tribal War" and "Operation Ardent" on a reggae mix tape in 93. After hearing Shaba Ranks go from dance hall to commercialized what ever you wanna call it, it was a big refreshing breath of fresh air to hear someone in dance hall keeping it true to Jamaca and dance hall. This CD is the true introduction to the God of Dance Hall seen today. The track "Litte More Time" was a inspirational song to me because of what I was going through at that time in 93-94. When ever I'm in that need for a real dance hall vibe, I know that this CD is that musical pill to releave my needs. Please go get this one if you don't already have it.

As a big reggae fan I was never turned on to to Buju Banton until recently. I never knew who he was. NOW I DO... He has a unique style and I LOVE IT. Can't wait to see him on tour. PLEASE COME TO Phoenix, AZ, USA. "Make My DAY"
One Love, Redsista

"Voice of Jamaica" marks Buju Banton's first attempt to crossover to an American/International audience. The slim, gruff-voiced deejay is still cast in the role of the street-savvy rudebwoy on this album. His neatly trimmed fade and clean shaven face stand in sharp contrast to the full beard and flowing dreadlocks that would become emblematic of the deejay in his later career. As with his previous offerings ("Stamina Daddy" and "Mr. Mention") Buju is still on about girls and guns. But what separates "Voice of Jamaica" from Buju's earlier body of work is slick, hip hop infused, Yankee-friendly production and a burgeoning sense of social consciousness.

"Stamina Daddy" was pure, gleeful slackness, a collection of pounding dancehall bangers. "Mr. Mention" contained more of the same, along with a bevy of love songs and the sole conscious tune on the album, "How the World a Run". "Voice of Jamaica", by contrast, begins to showcase Buju's developing maturity with a spate of conscious tunes such as "Deportees (Things Change)" (which blasts Jamaicans who go abroad to find their fortune and abandon their needy relatives back home), "Operation Ardent" (which takes the police force to task for its harrassment of innocent partygoers), "Willy (Don't Be Silly)" (which promotes the value of safe sex), and "Tribal War" and "Wicked Act" (both of which tackle the subjects of bloodshed and violence).

Still, "Voice of Jamaica" has no shortage of love songs and odes to women in general, such as "Searching" (for love - self explanatory), "Commitment" (about a man torn between two women), "Red Rose" (an homage to a beauty with a fondess for ornamental flowers), "Make My Day" (in which Buju promises a young lady, "I'll be your friend to the end like Chucky!" - From "Child's Play"? Yikes!

A few years ago a friend of mine couldnt stop talking about Buju. Finally, I heard this album, and I have to say I was hooked. While all of his releases (I haven't heard his current release) have been exceptional, Voice of Jamaica will always be my favorite. All the songs are good to excellent, but Deportees (Things Change), and A Little More Time stand out as the best tracks. I do realize, however, that it's almost unfair not to mention at least five other tracks. It is that good. Buju shows that, whether solo or teamed with another singer (such as Beres Hammond on a Little More Time), he carries a tune with authority. I highly recommend this album.

First of all, the song 'A Little More Time' is worth the price of the whole album, but the quality of this album is not limited to just one song. 'Commitment', 'No Respect', and virtually the whole album I continue to play over and over. Buju's voice is commanding, and the messages on such songs as 'Deportees' and 'Commitment' are real. This album just helps to show why Buju is to me the all time best dancehall artist. Respect

Buju Banton is one of the many reasons I love reggae. Red Rose and Make My Day are my favorite songs on this cd. I remember hearing Red Rose when I was younger and loving it. The songs on this cd are dance worthy and groove worthy. I highly recommend this blend of island flavor for your collection. Buju Banton is the CHAMPION!

Hey, you cannot slow down and rewind the early 90's when Buju picked up the notch in the quality of Dancehall. His music even though more than 10 years old still sounds fresh.

So, what you waiting for ..... proceed to checkout !!!

Buju, much respek ...
