AllMusic Review by

The latest in U.K. label Jet Star's long-running Reggae Hits series, this one features some of the biggest Jamaican and U.K. rhythm hits from 2006, including the pulsing, throbbing and heavily phased "Ganja Farmer" by George Dekker, the smooth and elegant "Try If You Want" by Beres Hammond and the outrageous "The Surf" by Tuggawar, which reconfigures the Safaris' "Wipe Out" as a blast of dancehall. A bonus DVD features a half-dozen video versions of some of the tracks. Bright, fun, and full of energy, this set proves there's still a lot more gold to be found in those tireless reggae rhythms.
