Those who despair that reggae hasn't been the same since the passing of Bob Marley will rejoice when they listen to Buju Banton. Without sounding like an imitation, Banton seems to have derived the most of his stylistic inspiration from Marley. This is melodic reggae with an irresistible beat that's easily accessible to those who might not be hard-core reggae fans, without appearing watered-down or "commercialized."
Banton uses '90s technology to carry on Marley's positive-song tradition--there's electronic percussion, but it blends in seamlessly. His voice is a bit similar to Marley's, but is somewhat raspier, and occasionally slips into a rap-influenced dancehall style. Banton even incorporates a bit of dub (echo, reverb and spacy special effects) into his songs, without losing the melodic flow ("My Woman Now"). INNA HEIGHTS will put some bounce into your day.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (3/5/98, p.68) - 3.5 Stars (out of 5) - "...The gruff-voiced Banton blazes a wider--and far more colorful--social and stylistic path on INNA HEIGHTS....goes a long way toward further establishing Banton as a ghetto messenger of peace and social justice..."
Blender (Magazine) (p.87) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[H]e doesn't so much vocalize as emote, radiating intensity with every syllable."
