This album is fantastic when "Stage One" first came out I was simply addicted to it plus the artist himself. I must agree with some of the reviewers that say that there are too many skits on this 21-track album. Still, there are some enjoyable tunes here, namely the hit single, "Infiltrate," which burned up dancehalls with its pumping beat, and "Hot Gal Today," a duet with ultra-hot DJ Mr. Vegas, which displays an interesting blend of Sean Paul's hard voice with Vegas' smoother vocals. "Faded," a take on Shania Twain's "Looks Like We Made It," also illustrates clever treatment.
I had this album on repeat for a long time. Some of the beats you might had already heard but with Sean Paul's voice over it, it makes a whole new sound. I can't pick out a favorite track in this album because I love it so much but if I had to it would be "Infiltrate," "Deport Them," "Haffi Get De Gal Ya," "She Want it," "Mek It Go So Den," "Check it Deeply," and "Next Generation."
While this album is not one of the best Dancehall Reggae has to offer, Sean Paul's debut album makes for a good intro to those who are seriously looking for a true Dancehall Reggae album. Anyone who likes dancehall and are unsure about whether or not to get this album, believe me this would be a nice start. Nothing but back to back non-stop dancehall music and most importantly it's all Sean Paul.
