The Strictly the Best series is fast becoming the best offering of cutting-edge reggae, outpacing the stellar Reggae Gold compilations. Strictly the Best #23 supplies convincing evidence for this theory, showcasing all that's fresh in dancehall, including ultra-hot DJ Mr. Vegas, who boasts three hits; newcomers Ward 21, who provide a standout single in "Judgement Day"; and "DJ of the Year" Beenie Man. This album has great balance, serving up a large dose of conscious dancehall alongside the rougher tracks. Conscious dancehall forefather Tony Rebel appears with his catchy "Hypocrites"; talented siblings Morgan Heritage manage to outshine everyone with the flowing, uplifting "New Jerusalem Medley"; and the controversial Sizzla, serves up his requisite fiery take on Jamaican politics with "Jail House Break." The too-seldom-heard feminine voice is also represented, with Tanya Stephens' wicked "Rigomortis" and Lady Saw's "Go."
