Matured, the brand new album by reggae veteran Anthony Malvo – released on July 15, 2022 – is impeccable in every way. The singer who captured our attention in 1989 after his megahit with Tiger, Come Back To Me, is all grown-up: musically and in reality.
His maturity is audible on the twelve-track reggae LP. However, it is more pronounced on the lovers-rock tunes that were clearly sung by a man that truly knows what it feels like to be in love. The inspirational songs, though fewer in number, are equally gripping, especially as they give an insight into the spiritual side of the singer. And with only one collaboration – Tell Me, done with Pressure Busspipe – Anthony Malvo‘s musical skills and diversity are on full display.
Most of the songs on Matured were produced by Anthony Malvo (for Malvo Entertainment) and his very good friend and colleague Ferdy of IzaYoungBoy Productions. Additional credits go to Delly Ranx‘s Pure Music, Duggy Benz from Red Square and Reggae Vibes Production.
When asked what he would like listeners to take away from this album Anthony Malvo said the following: “I would like listeners to know that great music is still making and reggae music is still alive and kicking down doors.” And that is so true! Matured is now available on all music platforms. It is a great body of work performed by an exceptional talent who has been in the business for approximately four decades. If you love reggae music you should add this album to your collection.
