Album Reviews

JahWorks.org:
The Songwriting 101 teacher must have had some frustrating moments when Vaughn Benjamin was in class. Unfortunately I can only imagine half of the conversation between them. Thatís because Benjaminís half would be a dazzling display of extended verbal comebacks that couldnít possibly be duplicated by a mere critic. - More

Reggae Reviews:
"Jah Grid" is the fifth Midnite-I Grade collaboration release, another addition to Midnite's growing catalogue which meanwhile comprises almost twenty full length albums! Indeed... a remarkable (and also astonishing) amount of album releases from a modern roots reggae band, which was started by brothers Vaughn and Ron Benjamin, and has been playing since 1989. - More

VI Roots:
Midnite and I Grade again team up for another outstanding release. This one is special since it features all live instrumentation heavy roots throughout - no programming or hip hop production on this one - just pure roots. Vaughn's writing and singing is in top form as always and reaching ever new heights (and depths) of lyrical content and melodic form. - More
