Goodness

 

Clinton Fearon's

 

10th self-produced album

 

 

 

Goodness reviews in the European media:

>>> Goodness is one of the best albums to be released this year. (Reggae.es, Spain).

>>> At 63 the former Gladiators’ singer is still living from and for his music. His new album Goodness is a jewel of acoustic reggae (Mondomix, France).

>>> Goodness: 4 stars. Clinton Fearon cultivates the same fluidity than the master Bob Marley. (Rock & Folk, France).

>>> Probably the best reggae album to listen to these days. (Marianne, France).

>>> Clinton Fearon proves once more that he is one of the finest song smiths in reggae music.  Do yourself a favor and GET this album! (Reggae-Vibes, Netherlands).

>>> Hands down one of the albums of the year (although it comes as no great surprise). (Reggaeville, Germany).

>>> With Goodness Clinton Fearon delivers one of his best albums in years. (Reggae.be, Belgium).
