AllMusic Review by

Jamdown Records has developed a reputation for its dancehall "megamix" collections, which feature recent Jamaican singles, often set over the same two or three rhythms, in a continuous mix sequence that approximates being at a DJ club. Here Sizzla's goofy and lively "Love and Affection" is followed by a further extension of the theme over the same rhythm by Turbulence called "No Doubt," and then Limey's "Cool Off the Pressure," set to the same beat. As a listening experience, it can get a bit maddening, with hardly any variation, but as a dancing experience, this is probably exactly what you want.
