Reggae crooner, Perfect Giddimani has always valued life and its various teachings in his music. With his new album, the artist is suggesting that that you are Better Off Dread in order to experience life’s full benefits.
The 14 track LP, released on April 15 is a true effort to paint a vivid picture of the Rastafari movement and the experiences one goes through physically and spiritually in trying to uphold a positive life and levity through the trial and tribulations Babylon puts down on society. An album full of emotion and reasoning, Better Off Dread takes listeners on a trip along many different avenues sure to cleanse you soul and establish a firm mediation that puts your mind at ease.
The album’s title track ideally starts off the album as Perfect Giddimani sings about being Better Off Dread than a baldhead, as he cherishes his Rastafarian roots while striking down the ills Babylon tries to sicken society with. He follows up on this pure Reggae track with a fusion of Reggae and rock music on Like Marley, where he pays homage to one of the Rastafari Movement’s greatest sons while also hailing other revolutionaries in a song which shows Perfect’s range and willingness to step outside the box.
The singer continues that revolutionary theme with Lutan Fyah and Jahdan Blackkamore on Revolution Come as he talks about the spiritual war he and his brothers are fighting against Babylon while songs like Hail The King, Trim to Rass and Fake Ass Friends talks of putting faith in His Imperial Majesty to get through those daily battles and rid of the phony warriors that enter one’s life. s
Better Off Dread allows for music lovers to see Perfect Giddimani in his truest form, with his personality expressed through strong lyrical content and nature of the background instrumentals, with an international flavor at the core. The aforementioned elements of Reggae, rock and roll as well as tidbits of soul and hip hop sounds makes this album embraceable by people of all places and traces.

If you’re looking for an album with a bit of everything: Strong lyrical content, a myriad of sounds and hints of eccentricity, Better Off Dread is the ideal album for you as it will leave you thinking in many ways.
