In the decade since his post-Fugees solo debut Wyclef Jean has become as well known as an activist as a pop artist. CARNIVAL II: MEMOIRS OF AN IMMIGRANT reflects Jean's political commitment in its detailing of immigrant experience, but not without also turning in an album of bright, eclectic, and continually inventive music. Reggae, Latin, and South Asian sounds can be heard amid the hip-hop and R&B, creating a multicultural pastiche that perfectly suits Jean's lyrical message.
CARNIVAL II is star-studded affair, with everyone from Paul Simon to Mary J. Blige to Nora Jones to the Minister Louis Farrakhan making guest appearances. There's plenty of the smooth rapping and pop smarts that Jean fans expect, but the arrangements and production for the disc set it a cut above. "Riot," featuring dancehall king Sizzla and System of a Down's Serj Tanikan, is a highlight, as is "Hollywood Meets Bollywood," a track that features the Southern MC Chamillionaire.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.130) - 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "It's a breathtaking, ambitious ride through a carnival of global music too rarely explored."
Entertainment Weekly (p.76) - "[With] the post-Katrina hymn 'Any Other Day,' on which Norah Jones joins Wyclef to paint a poignant picture of families stranded on rooftops..."
Vibe (p.108) - "[The album] makes Wyclef's M.O. crystal-clear: There are no division. He's aiming for one world, rocking to his thick, improbable grooves."
Q (Magazine) (p.124) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he roll-call of guests reflects his savvy, anything-goes approach."
Mojo (Publisher) (p.102) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Jean's sonic scope is breathtaking, complemented by imaginative lyrics whose themes range from family break ups, prostitution and drive-by shootings to the US occupation of Iraq."
