2.0 out of 5 stars Soul-less, October 25, 2005
This review is from: Trojan Soulful Reggae (Audio CD)
First off, let me say that the Trojan box sets are the greatest thing since gin met tonic. That said, I was very disappointed with this particular offering. The songs don't translate well (mostly), the singing was bad (sometimes mediocre), and, after reading the track list a few times, I realized that most of the original versions weren't that great to begin with. "Rock The Boat"? "Kung Fu Fighting"? "T.S.O.P"? W.T.F.?

Q: So why buy this set anyway? A: Because you need to get your hands on ALL reggae, good and bad. You'll have to look long and hard for these songs individually, so why not shell out the $25 or so and get 'em all neatly packaged w/ liner notes. If you're on a budget (like most of us), get something else, like the Instrumentals set or one of the Ska volumes.
