Review

Since 1977, the Soca Gold series spread the urge for an instantaneous part world-wide, and Soca Gold 1999 ups it to another level, offering everything from ragga soca, chutney soca, and pure, "jump up," soul calypso. From the ingenious, bass-driven Celine Dion cover, "Titanic," to the Latin-flavored, "Calor," to the just plain wicked "Up Under Me," this collection effectively captures the excitement of carnival. ~ Rosalind Cummings-Yeates
