Symeonn, Rob – The Chosen One
Reviewed by Sadie O., 11/17/06
Roots rock and VERY Rasta Reggae. Well made, classic sound, not too slick and not too stoned. He must be cool, cause he uses the Chicken Boy motto: It’s nice to be important, but it’s important to be nice.
No FCCs (as if!) – best tracks IMO are 7, 11 and 12.
1. 0:39 wave sounds, somewhat uptempo nyahbinghi with prayer
2. 3:48 *long intro, uptempo roots rock bubble.
3. 3:52 **dubby midtempo skank, very Rasta. Nice melodica.
4. 3:28 *midtempo roots with pretty female chorus, theme lifted from a kids’ church song. Rasta preaching.
5. 3:52 **slightly uptempo skank with cool sax.
6. 3:44 *midtempo skank with a bit of toasting. Nice combination of voices.
7. 3:25 ***midtempo tough skank with nicely looned out dancehall toast by Junior Kelly, Rasta message.
8. 3:47 *midtempo, classic roots stand, nice vocal harmonies
9. 0:39 waves and nyahbinghi fire and brimstone
10. 3:47 *slow folksy bubble with hints of slide guitar, lots of vocal harmonies.
11. 4:04 ***midtempo bubble, nice combination of male vocals.
12. 5:26 ***jaunty upbeat roots skank, fun music, very serious lyrics. Crazy combination!
13. 3:31 *somewhat uptempo bubble, female chorus.
14. 4:12 *downtempo acoustic nyahbinghi-inflected Rasta message, no drums.
15. 3:28 **uptempo rock steady bubble. Some dancehall toasting.
16. 3:58 *VERY slow, sweetened nyahbinghi version of track 6. Odd noises.
17. 3:53 **midtempo skank, instrumental version of track 5, solo mellow sax.
