Reviews - What do customers think about Dancehall Baptism Chapter One?
Amazing compilation of christian reggae & dancehall. Oct 10, 2007
I loved this cd the first time it was given to me, and I love it just as much now that I had to go buy a copy to replace the one I lost. If you want inspiring, energetic, danceable Christian reggae music, then you'll love it.
Great for all Jan 21, 2004
This album is just full of great beats. Mixing dancehall and roots reggae, this can pump you up or chill you out. Your mind will be groovin especially when you hear tracks like "Rocky Road", "Flex," and "Solid Rock." Dancehall Baptism Ch 1 has a Christian flow throughout the lyrics, however, to those who aren't so religious: this will not turn you off to the music like some christian records may do. Get it. JAM to it. Show your friends and they will want it. This is a must for a solid reggae collection
musical baptism Apr 6, 2002
This is a collaboration of Christian dancehall artists that are witnessing to the world that Jesus is Lord! My picks are Number One by Chevelle Franklin, My Stereo by Christafari, Flex by Todah and Born for the Struggle by Junior C. Of course anything by Stitchie is good to listen to. Overall this is a good collection of songs and would be a good choice for anyone who is just starting to listen to Christian reggae.
Good blend of Christian reggae May 15, 2001
DB1 makes want to track down the individual aritsts' albums! This compilation takes some of the best songs these artist have to offer. The messages are clear and songs like "Good News," and especially "Praise the Lord," in which The Prodigal Son talks about Ninjaman, a Jamaican deejay (they call them deejays instead of MC's) who was a pioneer for the gangsta dancehall, much like N.W.A. was for American gangsta rap. Ninjaman apparently accepted Christ at a revival, became Brother Desmond and started singing Christian lyrics, then went back to his old ways. Consequently, Reggae Gospel has been looked down upon because of Ninjaman's reputation among Jamaican Christians as a fraud. But Prodigal Son attempts to remind people that it's not too late for Ninjaman to get back in line. Other cuts like "Rocky Road" and "Solid Rock" will have you bobbing your head all day. Definitely worth getting!
Almost, but... May 4, 2001
For those of you who really enjoyed the sound of Shaggy's chatting on the hit "It Wasn't Me" but have nausea at the pit of your stomach for sort of liking a song about lying to your girlfriend after adultery, this collection should have been for you. Dancehall is that style of reggae rap heard in that song, and the dude from Christafari here combined a bunch of Christian groups that play in that style and put them all on one disc. I myself am a big fan of Christian music, but I am also a big fan of production values. If the lost will listen, the talent needs to be there, but unfortunately half the tracks on this album sound like they were recorded by three guys and an old Cassio keyboard with 50 "voices" for five bucks. A couple songs even sound like the author forgot that there are more than one note! There are high points: Christafari's "My Radio" isn't my favorite song by them, but it sounds decent, and outside them the best artists are clearly Stitchie and Chevelle Franklin. However, if you're looking for uplifting dancehall reggae AND decent production, you're better off just buying Christafari's far superior Word Sound Power album--an amazing disc.
