AllMusic Review by

This two-disc, 30-track collection of reggae love songs has a near perfect smooth and pleasant flow to it, the kind of set to listen to on a beautiful sunny day with the sunroof open and the world just blowing by without trouble or concern. Some of these sides wax to the generic side of things, but there's still plenty here to groove to, including the Mighty Diamonds' gorgeous harmonies on "Tonight I'm Gonna Take It Easy," Cocoa Tea's warm and gracious "Getting Closer," J.C. Lodge and Sugar Minott's duet on "Since You Came into My Life," Sanchez's sharp, finely observed "Can We Talk," and Heather Cummings' sexy "Hanky Panky," making for a fun, nicely balanced set of love songs, Jamaica style.
