    As the title suggests, this is a compilation of Harmony House cuts, all overseen by producer Beres Hammond. The multi-talented Hammond -- a veteran vocalist and an in-demand keyboardist -- knows a great melody when he hears it, and the album is stuffed with them. Some of these were composed by the producer himself, while a number of others are classic rhythms from Studio One and Treasure Isle. The backing bands include the Roots Radics, the Firehouse Crew, and a host of other excellent sessionmen, insuring every track is tight and tuneful. Hammond's productions have an easygoing air to the rhythms, particularly notable on the rootsier numbers but equally evident on the harder dancehall cuts. This approach works equally well for the cultural singers and the tough DJs, and thus there are no jarring shifts within this denizen; the harmonious sounds spread across all 15 tracks. Every song is worthy of note, but some of the stand-outs include Tony Curtis' gorgeous "Jah I Thank You," Ginja's tough and emotive "War Inna Di City," Louie Culture and Anthony Selassie's swinging "Ya Hoo," Anthony B's gruff "Good Life," and Sizzla and Jah Cure's powerful "King in the Jungle." Dancehall at its most musical. ~ Jo-Ann Greene
