For me, in my short time on the planet and virtually bathing the entire time in reggae music, one of the small golden ages more like Prince Malachi - I Know (Vinyl) golden window actually was definitely the mid to late 's and just a bit after the turn of the century when Xterminator was ruling modern roots reggae. Luciano has become a living breathing example everything which is RIGHT with reggae music as over the years many of his peers including the other name on this list have strayed away from the consciousness and the message music, Luciano never has and never will.
For me personally, besides Luciano, I will forever hold Xterminator in such high esteem for bringing to my attention the artist who now is without a doubt my favourite of all-time, Sizzla Kalonji. For his part, while Sizzla has definitely become one of the genre's most controversial names ever, there can be no denying of the heavenly high level to which he soars at his absolute best making not only some of the best songs you will EVER hear, likewise some of the best albums reggae music has ever produced.
Sizzla also, much like Bounty Killer in the dancehall has become THE artist for young and up and coming artist to idolize and seek to Prince Malachi - I Know (Vinyl). One such artist was Turbulence, who himself is in the midst of having a mighty fine career albeit currently uneven, Turbulence is still one of the most talented artists in the roots arena with a STILL untapped reservoir in my opinion.
Not to mention that Burrell once employed the equally legendary Dean Fraser as his musical arranger and if Xterminator were to record tomorrow, Fraser would STILL be in charge and Fatis is to be credited with linking the Firehouse Crew, one of the wickedest backing bands in reggae history.
Simply put, for modern reggae, few can claim to have done as much as the Philip Burrell and the Xterminator Crew. One of the lesser known names but definitely well solids partial products of Xterminator is Prince Malachi. The Prince was yet another frequent resident of Xterminator over the years and came to prominence by virtue of much of the work he had done for the label most notably the scathingly wicked Love Jahwork which is still respect and hailed as arguably his finest output to date.
His vibes have generally and at their best been somewhat of a mixture between Luciano and the aforementioned Yami Bolo; truly a style of his own. Where Luciano could seemingly write an entire album inspired by a breeze he felt one day while relaxing and the next album about something on a vibes completely spiritual which is what Yami Bolo does at his bestMalachi has a bit of that as well, but his spiritual vibes and singing songs for His Imperial Majesty have at least in my opinion been his absolute strength.
Malachi, unlike his peers, has been plagued by a series of inactive years including one due to an extended incarceration within the past four yearsbut his music hasn't suffered in the slightest, truly showing the consistency honed at Xterminator.
On the album side, Prince Malachi has remained relatively active, pushing by my count no less than six albums within a decade and now he returns with a new album for the first time in four years since his last appearance, 's VERY solid Runaway Slave for UK roots outfit Stingray. One Perfect Love, although rather light in terms of tracks checking in at only twelve is a VERY HEALTHY album which is equally very well done and if you've been following the singer like I have, you might actually think you picked up an old Xterminator re-issue with the very solid vibes throughout the album.
This album is rather difficult to find I would imagine it's a bit easier to find in the UK, however but should you really make the effort to track it down and you REALLY enjoy high level modern roots music, then your reward will be nearly perfect as Prince Malachi pushes what has to be respected as, quietly, one of the best reggae albums of The vibes on One Perfect Love are MUCH more of a spiritual nature finding the singer in his absolute best stage and he produces a master class throughout.
One such piece of material is the opening track, the Intro, which struck me as rather odd and yet rather familiar. I could name you a few reggae albums where the first track was of a similar nature to here most notably on Turbulence's Hail to The King in that the tune was a largely accapella style track backed for the most part a beautiful nyah drum Turbulence also had a piano if I remember correctlybut the tune is SO good, in both instances, that it threatens to take away from the rest of the album!
And while I hesitate to call it the best it here even though I'm not sure why in its short space of time, should you strictly scratch it out as the basic intro or album interlude, you'll do so at your own misfortune because you it is truly top notch more on that in a bit!
Getting things going here in the more traditional album sense is the system which, although it now has mighty large shoes to fill actually does so quite well. The system is a tune denouncing Prince Malachi - I Know (Vinyl) established system of the world which makes it possible for a one man to thrive more and more everyday and have his neighbour suffer everyday and how it is important to continue on one's journey as Prince Malachi so wonderfully puts it, "Another day, another night, another fight in that system.
But I Man still trodding on! Just a truly big vibes and one which could have so easily failed to reach the platform set by the intro. Another tune here coming far from failing is the opening closer and previous single, the very solid and very familiar sounding Burning.
Burning is a track which impressed me so much when I first heard it which would have been very late on the musical side because it was so very complexly produced.
For his part, Malachi VERY effortlessly crafts one of the most solid tunes on the album altogether although I'm still going to have to call it the least impressive of the first three tracks which doesn't say as much about it as it does about the first two tracks which are just brilliant. Physically speaking Malachi wasn't there, but you wouldn't know it from the way he sings the song!
If you take as somewhat of a 'lead-in' it would then be one of the greatest of all time the song excellently leads to the next track chronologically on the album, Keep On Talking which tells the masses that no matter how hard are the times we may face, it is important to keep on walking with and talking to His Majesty, a truly wonderful and important message for the people and although there are several more impressive tracks on One Perfect Love, perhaps none of them are better suited to following the shot that is Please try again later.
Track List: 1. Shall Not Be Moved 2. Harvest Time 3. Let I In 4. Naturally 5. Heart Full of Love 6. Right Vibes 7. Organized Crime 8.
Zion High Keeper 9. Can't Hear, Must Feel Break Free Chezidek is a very young and unknown Rastafari singer, and along with Turbulence, the future of Xterminator singers to follow Luciano. And while, as you would expect, his pen isn't as strong as it may eventually grow to become, he still has decent lyrics, and can definitely sing and ride a cultural Xterminator riddim. Unlike Turbulence and Kalongi, Chezidek is a pure singer, and rarely ever djays or chants in his tunes, but that isn't a bad thing at all.
The best song here is the title cut, Harvest Time, on which Chezidek does djay a little, but the hook on Harvest Time is what makes the tune excellent. Also check Let I In, which takes about a minute to get going, but when it does, its a very powerful tune, and it probably is the best song that truly conveys Chezidek's overall message.
Overall, I say pick this one up, if you're a fan of people like Turbulence, Prince Malachi, Jah Cure and Ras Shiloh, as Chezidek has a very high and loud tone, and of course if you like Xterminator music, this one just might do it for you.
