Shaggy – Intoxication
Shaggy, the dancehall virtuoso, returns with Intoxication, an album that will guarantee to get you hooked, make you sweet and irritate the shit out of you. His remake of Mary Hopkin’s “Those Days” has, unfortunately, stuck in my head and I can’t get rid of it. The rhythm is groovy; the flow is unmistakable; the chorus makes me want to slap myself for singing: “Those were the days my friend / we thought they’d never end / we sing and dance forever and a day / la la la la…” Another the track that is ridiculously addictive is “Mad Mad World.” The keyboard riff is as sweet as Starbuck’s Caramel Frappuccino. Need some workout? This album will keep you pumping for 56 minutes.
