  Reggae Reviews: Dennis Brown
While this album may be a bit too raw for newcomers to reggae in general and to Dennis Brown in particular, but Brown fans and more seasoned reggae listeners will definitely want to add this classic to their collection.
Visions is undoubtedly one of Dennis Brown's best studio albums, made all the more intriguing by the fact that few of these tracks are among his "standards," songs that are too often included in his too numerous "best of" compilations.
Dennis Brown received some criticism near the end of is career that he was spreading himself thin with all of his releases (which may have some validity, but I'd much rather have too much Dennis Brown than too little).

With a no-nonsense, straight-ahead style, Brown was capable of wrapping a love song in a crooning caress or inciting a crowd (as he did memorably at the 1983 Sunsplash in Montego Bay) to heights of uncontrolled hysteria.
