AllMusic Review by

Another volume of the usually excellent Rough Guide to World Music series, this collection presents the traditional music of the Caribbean, focusing on calypso and soca. Also presented is a more modern form -- rapso -- which combines the sound of the islands with a club-oriented heavy beat. This is an entertaining and educational compilation.
