AllMusic Review by

Though the notes claim the rhyming singers of the Bahamas were unique, it's always seemed that (like other Bahamian idioms) they may also have had links with 19th-century U.S. a cappella African-American religious music. Certainly the roots, both British and African, are similar, and the music itself equally magnificent.
