Review

One of the best albums in 2012 was Skarra Mucci‘s third album Return of the Raggamuffin. It was an energetic and uplifting effort with several bouncy cuts. Now it’s time for his fourth studio album, and I was thrilled when I listened to it the first time, because it’s made according to the same successful recipe.

Greater Than Great is surely a boastful title. And so is Skarra Mucci’s alias the Lyric Millionaire. But this versatile singay gets away with it. Partly thanks to his talent, but also because of the producers. A number of Europe’s best producers have namely been involved in this project – DreadsquadBizzarri, Irie Ites and Weddy G Soundforce, to name a few.

And even though a truck-load of producers have put ingredients in this delicious dish, Greater Than Great sounds remarkably consistent with its potent blend of reggae, hip-hop and old-school dancehall. It offers lots of relicks of classic riddims along with bragging lyrics and sound system destroyers.

It’s hard not to stomp my feet and nod my head to tracks like Come fi Take OvaMy Sound with its sublime sample of Wendy Rene‘s After Laughter, the perfect combination Bomboclaat on a version of the mighty Stop That Train riddim and War Dem Get, with an opening close to Gloria Gaynor’s I Will Survive.

The album title and its artwork might be a little cocky and exaggerate things a bit, but not much. Because Greater Than Great is definitely a very worthwhile set.
