It's rare for a legendary vocalist to sustain the quality of his music throughout his career, but Dennis Brown managed to. LOVE & HATE serves as a wonderful retrospective of his career. With ear-grabbing production by Niney, Tad Dawkins, Sly & Robbie, Joe Gibbs, and Dennis himself, this best-of is nothing short of breathtaking.
The powerful roots track "Revolution" commands attention, as do lovers tracks like "Silhouette," and "Money In My Pocket." Dennis' voice is at its best here and his command and delivery of the lyrics is top-notch. There's not a filler track on here, with cuts like the outstanding "Here I Come," the classic "Westbound Train," and the immensely popular lovers track "Cassandra" proving exactly how prolific of a songwriter Dennis Brown was. If there's one Dennis Brown album to pick for a collection, this is it.
