Reggae Gold 2018 kicks off in fine form with the HoodCelebrityy (aka Tina Pinnock, a Jamaican dancehall singer and songwriter from The Bronx, New York currently signed to Epic Records) on 'Walking Trophy,' which is backed seamlessly by Kemar Christopher "Ding Dong" Dwaine Ottey's punching 'Dweet (Genna Bounce)' [feat. Bravo], and then the sultry 'Better,' from Estelle, an English singer, songwriter, rapper, record producer, and actress from West London, England.

Next up is one of my own personal choices for Song of the Album, 'Easy To Love You' (feat. Konshens) from the UK based artist & producer Culan. That's followed by Amindi K. Fro$t Tesellated Valleyz on the fun, free-flowing 'Pine & Ginger,' the man himself, Jah Cure with 'Risk It All' (feat. Phyllisia Ross).

The gentle hipsway of Jah9's (aka Janine Elizabeth Cunningham) 'Love Has Found I' is yet another stand out track here, and that's backed by both Romain Virgo's lovers rock of 'Still,' English singer, songwriter, musician, record producer, and philanthropist Christopher Martin's 'Come Back,' and then the mighty hardcore Dancehall entertainer herself, Dovey Magnum on 'Bawl Out.'

We then get introduced to one of the newest artists to the Dancehall/Reggae community, Shenseea ON 'Nothing Dem Kno Have Ova Me,' which is followed by both 'U Me Luv' (from Jahmiel), and then comes Kemar Highcon's late night rap, 'Why.' Reanno Devon Gordon (formerly Glendale Goshia Gordon), better known by his stage name Busy Signal, then brings us a classy track in 'Stay So.'

Jamar McNaughton, popularly known as Chronixx is next up with 'Ghetto Paradise,' with both Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley's 'Medication' (feat. Stephen Marley) and then Beres Hammond with 'I'm Alive.' The first disc is then rounded out with 18 Year-Old Koffee's refreshing 'Raggamuffin' and then Queen Ifrica (aka Ventrice Morgan) on ''Black Woman.'

Rory "Stone Love" Gilligan introduces the opening compilation track for VP Records, 'Reggae Gold 25th Anniversary Mix,' and that's eventually backed by more from Beres Hammond on 'I Wish,' Buju Banton on the terrific 'Batty Rider,' and then Capleton (aka Clifton George Bailey III) on the HI-NRG track 'Everybody.' That energy continues on with 'Tight Up Skirt' from Red Rat (aka Wallace Wilson), which in turn is backed by Bounty Killer's (aka Rodney Basil Price) 'Benz and Bimma.'

"Six million ways to die ... choose one" are the words that open up the hardcore dancehall vibe of 'A Who Seh Me Done' from Cutty Ranks (aka Philip Thomas), which is backed by a Jamaican singer-songwriter whose career has spanned over two decades, Lady Saw, with 'Hardcore (It's Raining).' General Degree (aka Cardiff Butt) brings us 'When I Hold You Tonight' and then we get yet another stand out cut here on this wonderful 2CD compilation, Tony Rebel's (aka Patrick George Anthony Barrett) infectious sway on 'Fresh Vegetable.'

The album continues onward with an influential reggae artist who emerged in the late 1990s, Tanya Stephens on the stylish 'Google,' before the second CD comes to a close with Beenie Man's (aka Anthony Moses Davis) 'Girls Dem Sugar (Remix),' Rastafarian Garnet Silk's 'Everything I've Got,' and then the laid back, old school reggae vibe on 'Substitute Lover' by Half Pint (aka Lindon Andrew Roberts).
