Mint Royale : Sexiest Man In Jamaica

Two years ago, with Top Twenty hit ‘Don’t Falter’ (featuring Lauren Laverne before she sold her soul to present Channel 5 children’s telly), Manchester duo Mint Royale proved you could propel giddy, glorious dance tunes chartwards without being an egomaniac superstar DJ or churning out an awful one-off ‘Eybeefer anfem’. So this is bit of a disappointment.



Like Fatboy Slim on the happy pills dabbling in ska, it features Jamaican ex-boxer Prince Buster annoyingly declaring himself the ‘sexiest man in Jamaica’. Over and over. It has little of the one-finger-to-the-world greatness that made Mint Royale so ace, yet sadly this is probably their best chance yet of making 'Top Of The Pops'.
