Review

With a sound dubbed "urban roots rock reggae," Morgan Heritage, a group which consists of the five children of reggae singer Denroy Morgan, faithfully carry the roots reggae torch. Boasting smooth harmonizing and hopeful messages, these singers present a convincing case for the power of simple reggae "riddims." The quintet's rootsy sound shines on the opening track, "Reggae Road," and on the pure vocals of "Freedom," but their youth and energy are also positively displayed with the song's "toasting" sequence. This is the album for reggae fans looking to capture the original reggae sound epitomized by Bob Marley, but with a contemporary twist. ~ Rosalind Cummings-Yeates
