AllMusic Review by

Like the myriad other Riddim Driven albums released by VP, the Giddeon War volume features an ensemble of reggae vocalists singing over a given producer's riddim, in this case producer Richard "Shams" Browne. Though the production is generally top-notch, it lumbers on for the entire CD, often getting monotonous toward the conclusion. Thus, the vocalists are left to engage you, and since they come and go swiftly, your patience is often tested throughout the listening experience. Regardless, the series has proven successful for VP because many listeners enjoy the seamless beats and the variety of vocalists. Some of the vocalists include Jahmali, Buju Banton, Determine, Luciano, Anthony Cruz, and Yasus Afari.
