Two decades of performing and recording, Sanchez brings fans a new record with “Now & Forever” and quite possibly is his best work to date. 15 new tracks make up the record including new radio hit “Longing to Come Home” which is quite possibly one of his best singles ever. Normally, two decades of music can make an artist stale, but with Sanchez, he only has gotten better. “Now & Forever” is now out in stores for all the world to enjoy, and appreciate the longevity of one of Jamaica’s finest.
As I was first listening to the new record, “Longing to Come Home” was next up in my player, and I was humming along, and thinking to myself “I really hope this is the first single to this record.” Sure enough, it is, and I can see why. The track is also featured on the Protect & Serve Riddim, featuring lovely island rhythms and has a great hook line you will be singing along like I have been. Other stand out tracks like “Won’t Surrender” will sound familiar as it’s how Tiger Woods was caught cheating. You got to love/hate technology. Everyone can find you and know what you are up to. The rest of the record is made of Sanchez’s standard, lover’s rock reggae music, which is just in time for Valentine’s Day and just in time for you and your significant other to get down while listening to one of Jamaica’s legendary crooners.
Bottom Line: One of the best Sanchez records with many stand out hits
Notable Tracks: Longing to Come Home, I’m For Real, Won’t Surrender, Feel Good All Over
