AllMusic Review by

"When it hits you, you feel no pain." The Tide Is High is a collection of recordings that takes the relationship between rock and reggae to the next level and is purely indicative of this old saying. First in a series of six CDs that feature the world's top reggae artists paying homage to the greatest rock & roll songs and artists, this compilation of 18 tracks features songs composed by such artists as Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, and Led Zeppelin. Featured artists include Big Mountain singing "Sara's Smile," The Mighty Diamonds featuring Mr. Vegas singing the title track, Toots and the Maytals, and Steel Pulse. The beat is on and this innovative, poignant, and soulful selection of reggae and rock is an excellent starting point for or addition to any rock and reggae collection.
