AllMusic Review by

Rebound's Reggae Dance Party II may play a little fast and loose with the term "reggae" -- Culture Club's "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me," Billy Ocean's "When the Going Gets Tough, The Tough Get Going" and especially Buster Poindexter's "Hot Hot Hot" and Bobby McFerrin's "Don't Worry Be Happy" are nowhere near reggae -- but it nevertheless is a very entertaining record that's perfect for a party, thanks to such songs as Jimmy Cliff's "The Harder They Come" and "You Can Get it If You Really Want," Toots & the Maytals' "Pressure Drop," Black Uhuru's "Chill Out," Peter Tosh's "Get Up Stand Up," Johnny Nash's "Stir It Up," Third World's "Now That We Found Love" and Steel Pulse's "Reggae Fever."
