RECORD RACK

Record Rack / In Brief

September 05, 1993|ELENA OUMANO

* * * Shaggy, "Soon Be Done," Virgin. This Brooklyn-based reggae rapper has two areas of interest--the bedroom and the dance floor. That's evident from the opening track and title song, a cheerfully irreverent reworking of a classic spiritual. Producer Sting International frames Shaggy's lighthearted rapping with fat, squishy beats and unexpected samples--like a "Carmen" aria on "Bedroom Bounty Hunter" and the "Peter Gunn" theme on "Oh Carolina."

New albums are rated on a scale of one star (poor), two stars (fair), three stars (good) and four stars (excellent).
