I was just asked to load up up a Lyricson album and here it is for all of you. This ones for Kyle.
Lyricson sometimes reminds you of his Jamaican counterpart
Turbulence but that doesn't imply that he doesn't have a distinctive
style -- has the skills to act either as a singer, singjay or deejay,
depending on the riddim he has to ride and, above all, the kind of song
he wants to do. And what's more, he does it in truly fine style and
with a great deal of vocal control.
Except for the wonderful lovers tune "Only Lady", all tracks strictly deal with reality and roots & culture. Besides the solid tunes on this album like e.g. "Give Jah Praise", "Be Wise & Conscious" and "Youthman Rise", you'll find quite a few very strong efforts. The latter include the uplifting "Don't Give Up" and the awesome "Keep On Moving", both with backing provided by Bost & Bim. But there's also "Solid Ground" over Back 2 Zion's wicked 'Purple Ting' riddim, "Jah Me Call On" across Elohim's 'Black Marianne' riddim, the beautiful "Repatriate" and the powerful "Choosen Ones", all deserving credits for being amongst the best tracks featured here.
Lyricson's "Keep The Faith" affirms that good reggae albums don't necessarily have to come from Jamaica.
