Trinity wants to give your subwoofers a workout. After you've gotten used to your stomach reverberating with the bass in "Rasta Determination," you'll notice the eerie brass and Trinity's half chanting, half spoken lyrics. This re-release of the dancehall deejay's Seventies hits coincides with the tour of Trinity (aka Wade Brammer) with the Blood and Fire Sound System through North America. You can revisit the Rasta musings of Trinity through this disk, but the length of the cuts doesn't do the rambling style of Trinity justice. The best cuts are the opener and the apocalyptic dub of "Hold Them Jah Jah". If you like tight compositions and polish, Shanty Town Determination might not do it for you - you might want to check out Trinity live instead. - Craig Tower
