Kristine Alicia’s Songs From Zion is a masterpiece.

Sampler

My first encounter with Jamaican vocalist Kristine Alicia was two years ago when she was featured on Rory Stone Love’s two one riddim compilations Braveheart and Zeen. She was responsible for two of the strongest cuts on those and I was blown away by her strong and confident voice.

Kristine Alicia - Songs from ZionNow her new album has been put out and with this set she relaunches her career with a rootsy sound. And the first single off the album is Roll It, a tribute to all reggae DJs who have helped the genre to reach a global audience. Roll It is easy-going with a laid-back atmosphere. The full album shows a different side of Kristine Alice. A more melancholic side.

Songs From Zion is a stunning set. I dare to say that it’s breathtaking from start to finish and I have had it on repeat for several days.

Rory Stone Love has created a full-sounding and dub-infused sonic landscape over which Kristine Alicia sings earnest and sincere. It’s intimate and you can feel every syllable on a track like Key Lock, with its call and response chorus and dramatic production.

Other highlights include the pulsating Valley Song, which is a remake of the classic Cuss Cuss riddim, the bombastic Come Home Natty, where she provides a bit of deejaying, the devout My King and the up-tempo and uplifting Follow with its powerful chorus.

Kristine Alicia, who is a trained pianist and has released a gospel- inspired reggae album, is a remarkable singer and together with Rory Stone Love she has created a musical masterpiece.
