Considered by some to be almost the vocal reincarnation of the late Garnett Silk, Ras Shiloh certainly has one of the best voices in contemporary reggae, and this album -- a mix of Jamaican hits and new cuts -- shows his skills, kicking off with "Complain," riding Silk's classic over the "Tempo" riddim. "Give I Strength" made its first appearance as a Buju Banton tune, but it's "Child of a Slave," Shiloh's old hit, that's a standout, with its beauty and conscious lyrics, a feature of much of Shiloh's work. Perhaps the real oddity of the bunch is the cover of Leo Sayer's old pop hit "More Than I Can Say," which doesn't suit his style too well. On "Running Away From Love," Shiloh departs from his usual vocal style to take on more of a light vintage R&B touch, and the result is quite delightful. But there's not a bad cut on here; even the lovers rock is smooth enough to be pleasant and show one direction for the man. If there's any justice, From Rasta to You will be his breakthrough on a global level.
