AllMusic Review by

This very satisfying CD finally brings some taste and production values to soca. The beat is, well, the beat -- pulsing and pounding like a storm on the beach and there are all sorts of nice touches in the arrangements, but nothing sounds out of place or odd or cheesy (which cause problems in other soca). Fire is a compilation (under the direction of Eddy Grant) of seven different singers -- some funny, some soulful, none dull -- and all new to me.
