AllMusic Review by

In this fourth installment of the Reggae Lasting Love Songs series, the 17-song selections come together to form a truly stellar collection that outdistances all of the previous offerings. The art of lovers rock reggae is showcased here with masterful performances. From Richie Stephens' inspired cover of Luther Vandross' "I'd Rather," to the ragga romance of Junior Kelly's "Baby Can We Meet," this CD covers every angle of the genre and it does it well. There's not a weak track here, but standouts include Nana McLean's supple singing on "Promised Land," Fiona's sweet remake of Selena's "I Could Fall in Love," Mikey Spice's soul-drenched "When You Are Lonely," and Ambelique's passionate "I Loved and I Lost."
