9. Midnite, King’s Bell (I Grade)

Already regarded by many as one of the best touring reggae bands in the world, St. Croix’s Midnite released an album to quiet non-believers in King’s Bell. Working for a first time with a Jamaican producer (Andrew “Bassie” Campbell), the group tapped Leroy โ€œHorsemouthโ€ Wallace, Earl โ€œChinnaโ€ Smith and Sticky Thompson, among other JA session legends, for musical contributions, and even released their first video (for “Mongst I&I”), while Vaughn Benjamin’s lyrics on the New World Order provided much food for thought on songs like “Pon A Watchlist.”
