MIND ON THE MOON
Snow
Virgin/EMI

Informer? More like Reformer. Reggae-pop toaster and dancehall bad boy Snow cleans up his act big-time on his fourth CD Mind on the Moon. After the heavy Jamaican vibe of his '97 flop Justuss, Darrin O'Brien takes blatant aim at the pop charts here. Rubba-dub rhythms and Caribbean melodies are tossed for silky smooth soul and boy-band hip-pop, and even Snow's boasting toasting -- arguably his main strength -- is literally pushed back in the mix to make room for crooning vocals on songs like Everybody Wants to be Like You, one of several numbers that could be an outtake from a Backstreet Boys demo (not surprisingly, BSB and 'N Sync cohort Mike Tucker had a hand in the production). It ain't totally Snow White -- the song Jimmy Hat is about exactly what you think, in no uncertain terms. But in the main, Snow's latest leaves us cold.
