The smiley-face tone of this album title is not misleading. Although a couple of cuts tastefully skirt the edge of slackness and one (the very fine "Mr. Nine") is an angry denunciation of Kingston's gun culture, Friends for Life is more accurately represented by song titles like "All Will Be Fine," "Spectacular," "Good Times," and the twin throwaway tracks "Tra La La" and "La Da De D. Banton remains a better DJ than singer.
The most recent Buju Banton release is Stumbling Block, a collaboration with Freddie McGregor produced for Blacker Dread Records by the British sound system selector of the same name. I actually had a track on Buju's last album called ‘Innocent,’ says Blacker, a fixture in the UK reggae scene who is the subject of the recent BBC documentary Being Blacker, directed by Molly Dineen.
