Jamaica Gleaner / THE EDITOR, Sir:
This year’s Grammy Awards will get a lot of attention in the reggae category. I commend the nominees, but having listened to the albums, Chronixx’s Chronology stands out in terms of artistry. It is the epitome of what reggae music is all about and it is the only album (of all the nominees) I went out and bought.
Chronology is conscious, classic, clean reggae, reminiscent of what the pioneers who developed this genre were all about. I am reminded of Bob Marley when I listen to an album like this.
A friend overseas said he gets such a high Jamaican vibe when he listens to Chronology, it makes him want to return.
Obviously, a lot of work went into this album, and for one’s debut album to be nominated among the best is quite a feat in itself.
We know the Grammys tend to favour the Marleys, regardless of popular opinion, but let us see what happens on January 28 when the winner is announced.
