    The son of noted reggae singer Jimmy Riley, Tarrus Riley made waves in Jamaican music scene with his 2004 debut, CHALLENGES, on the indie label Ya Man Music. With strong dancehall roots but also informed by a taste for pop, rock, and soul, Riley's sound quickly won over fans in Jamaica and abroad. Four years later, VP records reissues Tarrus Riley's exceptional first album with two bonus tracks--"Love Created I" and "Save the Children."

    Record Collector (magazine) (p.93) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "'Rasta At The Control' is a hip-swaying funky workout, while the ska-esque 'Take Me Higher' just shouts for radio play."
