The title track of Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley's third album deserves to be blended with Lil' Kim's Lighters Up during some kind of DJ situation. The flows on those tracks are nearly identical. That said, it's understandable that Bob's youngest son's album made the unprecendented (for reggae) debut at number 7 on the Billboard 200 pop charts. He can rock a variety of poppy roots and dancehall deliveries (some verging on Beyoncé-featuring-Sean Paul-style fare) that are accessible but still don't come off like he's making a sacrifice. He's got some strong featured artists (Nas, Black Thought, Bounty Killer) and things to say, and the production is tight if a bit heavy on the Cher-style vocal modulator. The only major fuck-up is the track Beautiful, with its grating saxophone riddim and Bobby Brown oozing all over the place. Damian Marley blazes into the Guvernment November 28.
