AllMusic Review by

Mighty Sparrow (Slinger Francisco is his real name) blends calypso and soca with clever (and often risqué and subtly political) lyrics and a joyous style that often masks his occasional seriousness. This two-disc, 30-track set (there is also a third disc, a DVD live performance from Mighty Sparrow) is a bit all over the map, but it includes several goofy gems, including “Congo Man” and “Only a Fool."
