AllMusic Review by

Unlike reggae, soca plays not a Messianic-rebellious role in Trinbago society, but a pragmatic reformist one. The three weakest tracks here seem attempts to justify a basically inappropriate concept. The rest, ranging from good to terrific, are from mainstream soca commentators from Stalin and Nelson to Ras Iley and Red Plastic Bag.
