Boombastic confirmed Shaggy's status as one of the most popular dancehall acts of the '90s, and for good reason -- the record is an infectiously entertaining collection of deep, funky grooves that celebrates good times. Featuring the major hit title track, the album also sports a great guest appearance by Grand Puba on "Why You Treat Me So Bad," as well as a hot duet with singer Wayne Wonder on "Something Different." Despite a silly cover of "Day Oh," Boombastic keeps the funky reggae coming and is Shaggy's best album to date. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

Shabba Ranks landed another pop hit on his third album to hit the charts over a two-year span. "Slow and Sexy" peaked at number 33, providing ample momentum for another collection of sex cuts and come-ons. Ranks did include "Rude Boy" and "Two Breddrens," but otherwise, the focus of X-tra Naked stayed completely in the bedroom. © Ron Wynn /TiVo

If Dread Beat An' Blood brought Johnson and initial flush of notoriety, then Forces of Victory was the record that cemented his growing reputation as a major talent. Bovell and the Dub Band swing hard on this set, especially on the album's opening track "Want Fi Goh Rave." This contains some of Johnson's most memorable songs/poems, such as the heartfelt prison saga "Sonny's Lettah" and the confrontational "Fite Dem Back," which he delivers in his trademark sing-song Jamaican patois. Dramatic and intense to the point of claustrophobia, Forces of Victory is not simply one of the most important reggae records of its time, it's one of the most important reggae records ever recorded. © John Dougan /TiVo
