Cell Block Singles Series Vol. I
by Various Artists
Released: Apr 2008
Label: Cell Block Studio Records
The little reggae label that could has thrown down memorable singles by some of the biggest names in the game. They rightly kick this collection off with Buju Banton, whose "Rampage" proves that dancehall can rampage without getting ridiculously repetitive. Hear them attempt to recreate that magic down the line, with stars big and small -- Beenie Man and Wayne Wonder among them. Not every track succeeds, but the label's left-of-center approach definitely ups its batting average.
