Luciano
Serve Jah
VP

By JUDSON KILPATRICK

Published April 19, 2006

Born Jephter McClymount, Luciano got his stage name due to his operatic voice, and is also known as the Messenjah for his conscious lyrical lessons. Though there is nothing here as immediately engaging as past hits like “It’s Me Again Jah” or “Sweep Over My Soul,” Luciano is in usual fine form. One of the best selections, a duet with Capleton called “Hail King Selassie,” already appeared on that artist’s Still Blazin’. Veteran producer Jack Scorpio utilizes accomplished musicians throughout, providing lively rhythms for “True Love,” “I Am Not Sorry,” “Injustice” and “I Will Suvive” (not the Gloria Gaynor song). One notable track, though, is entirely acoustic: “House Of The Lord” features Luciano backed only by his own gently strummed guitar. Given the overall quality, this is one of the better conscious albums of recent memory. Even if it doesn’t contain any true Luciano masterpieces, no reggae fan will be disappointed.
