Beres Hammond, "One Love, One Life" (VP)

Legendary crooner Beres Hammond, one of the most recognizable voices in all of Jamaica, is back with "One Love, One Life," a 20-track double album with steady grooves and some bonafide classics.

Self-produced and recorded in his Kingston studio, Hammond has organized a record that splits into matters of the heart ("One Love") and social consciousness ("One Life.")

"No Candle Light" is instantly amazing, Hammond is ever the gentleman on the tender mid-tempo groove "In My Arms" and the romantic ballad "Lonely Fellow" is sincere.

The second album is calm and refreshing, full of songs that will uplift.
