Reggae Sunshine Review

by Rob Theakston

The Countdown Singers return yet again with another blast of summer sunshine with this compilation of reggae standards and hits. The group takes some of the most familiar reggae-influenced chart hits and re-creates them with great accuracy; however, most of them are just watered-down renditions of UB40 standards, which themselves are reinterpretations. So while this might be a selling point for most people looking to skim the surface of commercial reggae, others who are reggae fanatics might want to look elsewhere for their fixes.
