Jean, Wyclef : Masquerade

Jean, Wyclef : Masquerade

Wyclef 's third solo outing takes the form of radio station 93.1 FM, inspired by 9/3/01, the day his father died in a freak accident. Clef 's splendid embrace of the absurd is still in place (check 'What's Up Pussycat', with Tom Jones), but...

Jean, Wyclef : Two Wrongs

Jean, Wyclef : Two Wrongs

You have to wonder how much faith Wyclef Jean has in this dreamy reggae meander if he feels the need to appear in adverts for Virgin as rainy-day back-up. Still. This might not be as much fun as ‘Perfect Gentleman' - no fallen women to...

The Eclefti : 2 Sides II A Book
