Since his appearance on the British lovers-rock scene in the
mid-`80s, Maxi Priest has become not just a reggae icon but an
international pop superstar. Impressively, Maxi's breezy mix of
dancehall, roots and pop R&B has struck a chord with mainstream
pop audiences in both the U.K. and the U.S., making him one of only
two U.K. acts to score a Billboard number-one hit--the sultry
"Close to You." THE BEST OF MAXI PRIEST is a useful career recap,
focusing on the pop crossover efforts that have brought the singer
widespread critical and commercial plaudits. From appealing cover
material, like his bouncy roots-flavored take on Cat Stevens's
"Wild World," to uplifting anthems, such as the soaring "Watching
the World Go By," BEST OF is a satisfying roundup of one of the
reggae world's most accessible artists.
