Sean Paul - 'Tomahawk Technique'

Sadly, his creative decline continues

Sean Paul - 'Tomahawk Technique'

Album Info

  • Release Date: March 12, 2012
  • Producer: Rico Love, Benny Blanco and Stargate
  • Label: Atlantic
  • Fact: Sean Paul described the sound as "a mixture of pop music into dance music".
3 / 10 You could say Jamaican loverman Sean Paul is dancehall’s very own Tom Jones – he doesn’t produce the real bangers anymore but still, you can’t dislike him too much because he seems like a pretty nice guy, he’s probably got some dynamite stories and his early tunes are fun to dance to when you’ve consumed enough alcohol to imminently require a trip to A&E (‘Gimme The Light’ was probably Sean’s ‘Delilah’). Sadly, his creative decline continues on his fifth studio album, ‘Tomahawk Technique’, which is – trance’n’b-meddling album lowlight ‘Touch The Sky’ aside – a lacklustre collection of what sounds like pallid versions of previous hits. Missile launch failed.
