AllMusic Review by

Possessing satiny smooth vocals that rival the king of lover's rock, Beres Hammond, Glen Washington melds sophisticated romance with soothing reggae rhythms. All but two of the albums were written by the crooner and his song-writing skills complement his expert vocals. Although primarily noted for his love songs, the highpoints of Get Next To Me are actually his conscious tunes. "Serious Time" boasts appearances by legendary reggae players Sly Dunbar and Dean Fraser, for a strong melody and uplifting lyrics and "Jah Blessing" stand out with an up-tempo beat and mesmerizing sax-playing by Fraser.
