Boombastic Review

by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Boombastic confirmed Shaggy's status as one of the most popular dancehall acts of the '90s, and for good reason -- the record is an infectiously entertaining collection of deep, funky grooves that celebrates good times. Featuring the major hit title track, the album also sports a great guest appearance by Grand Puba on "Why You Treat Me So Bad," as well as a hot duet with singer Wayne Wonder on "Something Different." Despite a silly cover of "Day Oh," Boombastic keeps the funky reggae coming and is Shaggy's best album to date.
