AllMusic Review by

Macka B included an uncharacteristic love tune on this session, recruiting Carroll Thompson for a good but unspectacular version of "Where Is The Love." He also teamed with Earl Sixteen on "Something Nuh Right" and "Dem Get Me Mad" and Pauline "Brown Sugar" on "One Man, One Vote." "Dem Get Me Mad" attacked Western cinematic depictions of Rastas, while "(Racists) Back Off" was the strongest message track and "Jamaica, No Problem?" examined internal difficulties and political conflicts in the Caribbean. It wasn't much different from most Macka B albums, although it was a little conservative musically.
