Sizzla
Soul Deep
Greensleeves

By Judson Kilpatrick

Published September 23, 2005

Well, well, another month, another Sizzla album. It’s becoming almost ridiculous how many records the man born Miguel Collins puts out each year—year after year. But there are always some gems on each release, so Jah bless him and his incredible productivity. The album starts off strongly with the upbeat “Good Morning,” a melodic confection that will please fans of tunes like “Just One Of Those Days.” Morgan Heritage joins in to smooth out the R&B-style ballad “All I Want.” Another candidate for late-night, Quiet Storm play is “Good To Know.” On tunes like these, accomplished producer Donovan “Vendetta” Bennett seems to be doing everything he can to help Sizzla cross over to the pop charts. “Love You More” is a showcase for Sizzla’s famous falsetto, but over the harder beats of “Nothing Bothers Me” it becomes a little disturbing. It’s best when Sizzla uses it sparingly, as on the delightful, inspirational “Be Strong.” By the way, “Mount Zion” is not to be confused with his fiery “Trod Mt. Zion”—this is Sizzla’s lightest release to date.
