Gyptian, 'Hold You' (VP)

6
Hold You
Critical Mass
Label: VP

by Baz Dreisinger

After this honey-tongued Jamaican singer scored an unlikely crossover hit with the summer-friendly slow jam "Hold You," he merited a follow-up album -- stat. So here it is, his third; and opinion will hinge on how listeners feel about the inimitable instrument that's front and center: Gyptian's voice. If you find its falsetto-tinged, mildly pinched, occasionally Auto-Tuned tone cloying, forget it. Should these same qualities prove endearing -- with a winning sound that's part R&B, part reggae, and part old-school dancehall -- then Gyptian may yet elude the dreaded one-hit-wonder tag.
