AllMusic Review by

A generous set of soca, zouk, and reggae tracks all done up in a synthesized Jamaican dancehall style, Island Jamz ends up being a winning listen simply because of its sunny, upbeat rhythms. Highlights include Sean Caruth's garish but infectious "Jennifer," Ghetto Flex's ever-shifting party suite "Global Jam," Flava's stupid but delightful "Hanna Banana," and Zoom's equally as dumb and just as delightful "Soca Elvis." As long as you remind yourself not to take it too seriously, this set is a whole lot of fun.
