I don't remember who mentioned Supervillains a few pages back, but I looked them up when I first found the thread and liked their Careless Whisper cover (my brother showed me the Sexy Sax Man video so of course I had to check out the cover). It wasn't until this past weekend I looked through more of their music on Spotify and I found their album Robots. I'm in love with it, been listening to it a lot this week.
I liked a couple old posts from the first page that really mirrored my taste. I like slightly stoopid, rebelution, SOJA, etc. Very mellow.
As for Jamaican reggae, I like lover's rock. Check out Beres Hammond's song "rock away"-- its my favorite.
Others I like in reggae: Richie spice, Luciano, gyptian, sanchez, buju Banton. I Dont really like the dancehall or faster reggae. Or reggaeton.

I was really into John Brown's Body in the 90's. And if you've ever heard of Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, I used to hang with those guys years ago. My sister was real good friends with them. The only thing I don't like is dance hall reggae and it's relatives. Just not for me.
Saw those panda dub guys in concert with Rebelution. It was AWESOME.
