AllMusic Review by

In Sparrow's early days, Melody was his only competition (a fact which engendered some fine mutually abusive lyrics). This delightful collection shows why. At his best, in "No," for example, Melody had almost all the lyrical and melodic panache of Sparrow and a fine sound too. And if it was always usually only "almost", that's irrelevant to the fact that he was a major calypsonian unjustly forgotten.
