Capleton
Reign Of Fire
VP

By Judson Kilpatrick

The Prophet returns with yet another fire-themed release -- quite appropriately, since he's still blasting politicians and other evil ones with his brimstone preaching and incendiary delivery. Most of the songs are roots-style tracks, including the hit single "That Day Will Come" on the Hardtimes riddim. Veteran producer Bobby Digital (the original one, not RZA) handles six cuts, lighting a retro blaze beneath "Jah Is My Everything," dropping the classic Forever Loving Jah riddim under "ever Share (Burn Dem)" and supplying his "One For The Road" riddim for the ganja anthem "Ton Load." This being Capleton, there are also several hardcore riddims like Chrome ("In Her Heart"), Stepz ("Or Wah"), Red Alert ("Real Hot") and Kopa ("Who You Callin' Nigga") -- all top-notch. The one guest is Stephen Marley (Bob was, of course, one of Capleton's biggest influences) on the jumpy "Sunshine Girl." Another notable departure from the conscious lyrics is the smoothly romantic "Remember The Days." Overall, this is a rock-solid Capleton collection, without the type of pop-crossover collaborations he tried during his Def Jam days.
