At the end of the day, when all the numbers have been tabulated, all the votes have been counted and all parishes have reported, Sizzla Kalonji is without a doubt my absolute favourite artist of all time. In my era of listening to music (which pretty much perfectly align itself with the entire age of modern reggae music) we have never seen an artist who, at his definite best exudes what reggae music is all about. We haven't seen an artist who can make music with a message, which teaches and is pleasing to the ears and entertaining at the same time. An artist who would eventually grow to begin producing and making himself a full fledged true musician and NEVER lose touch with the youths of Jamaica from the ghettoes and the country same way. For me personally, his rise to prominence coincided with my own acceptance of Rastafari and let me tell you! Never since Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and finally Dennis Brown closed their eyes has reggae had such a wonderfully flawed, yet seemingly unshakable roots man for the people as Sizzla Kalonji. His real talent has always been in his lyrics: Where the standard roots artist would have a strong message in his/her tunes which would virtually mirror what you would hear in a Kalonji tune, his method of delivery and actual method of writing the words would be so different and yet say the same thing while giving a decidedly `fuller' version. I say that to say you'll probably never see Sizzla fitting into the stereotypical Rastaman artist, "Praise Jah", "Times getting red" and "Di wicked ah guh suffer", role which is SO filled these days with mediocre and downright UNTALENTED artists. In my opinion, Sizzla has also been instrumental in bringing forth the next generation of artists as well.Read more ›

I have been listening to this cd every day since it arrived about 3 weeks ago. It is better than I expected! I always loved Sizzla from his first "breakout single" in the states "Ultimate Huster." However it was the song that played over the end of the video for "Ultimate Hustler that really made me a fan of his. That same song is the 1st song of this collection. It is nice to discover Sizzla thru this song: Just One of Those Days (Dry Cry). Although the song is still my favorite of his, the rest of the collection made me a true fan for life. It is great. It showcases all facets of Sizzla and what he contributes to the reggae genre. I was delighted to discover his range and talent vocally as well. The accompanying dvd is also a treat. It allows the viewer to get a glimpse we wouldn't normally of the artist. I highly recommend this collection and dvd....It is a gift I will treasure.

For those who prefer culture to dancehall, this compilation is probably the best Sizzla "best of" album in circulation. I don't mean to suggest that this album is better than Sizzla's "The Story Unfolds" double CD on VP Records. "The Story Unfolds" has more of Sizzla's hits, but "The Journey" is more consistent and listenable throughout, such that you won't need to skip any tracks.
This CD ranks with "Da Real Thing," along with recent-era Culture, Black Uhuru and Israel Vibration albums, for the quality of its meditative grooves and soothing lyrical delivery. The song selection reflects some of Sizzla's most positive and uplifting songwriting efforts.
Overall, "Journey" is a superior musical compilation that is far greater than the sum of its individual songs, much like a good mixtape, only here you get all of the songs in full.
Well worth the money!!
