AllMusic Review by

Madacy's Reggae Fever collection features the Countdown Singers performing many reggae classics originally performed by such artists as Bob Marley and Shaggy. Much like all the other myriad Madacy collections, Reggae Fever doesn't feature the original recordings of the featured songs but rather cover versions. The Countdown Singers cover these popular songs impressively; however, never do these songs compare to the original versions, sounding instead somewhat cheap and kitschy. Featured performances include "(I Can't Help) Falling in Love With You," "Baby I Love Your Way," "No Woman No Cry," "Red Red Wine," "Boombastic," and "Buffalo Soldier," in addition to several others.
