Red Plastic Bag x De Red Boyz is a very effective combination for Crop Over Festival (don't say Carnival). The song is well produced, with excellent lyrics and a singer who delivers superb vocals. But, there is a but for this post. The music has that unmistakable and distinctive Red Boyz sound, which can be a positive thing, but there is a caveat to this song. Do we like it? Yes, we do, but this song feels familiar, which makes it feel like something we've heard before. That is not on the artist's shoulders but on the production team. 

The Crop Over Festival is fast approaching. Soon, with an open door, the festival will light up the party scene, with parade bands ready for the street parade. This huge party will require fresh music production. Artists press production groups like De Red Boyz to create music for newly written lyrics appropriate for a specific artist. With so many songs in the works, sometimes a situation like this occurs. A pleasant song, with well-written lyrics, but music that sounds like something we've heard before. 

"Sounds like something we've heard before," but one has to admit that "I Can't Imagine" is a fun and upbeat song that will get you in the mood for Crop Over 2023. The song has a catchy melody and an upbeat tempo, and it will surely get you moving. It is a celebration of Barbados' culture, and it is a great way to show your support for the island. If you are looking for a song to get you moving, "I Can't Imagine" is the right choice for you.

So what is our final conclusion regarding "I Can't Imagine" by Red Plastic Bag? Well, it is good to hear music from this Bajan cultural hero. It is really a pleasure hearing from you, dear singer. We like the song, but the familiarity of the music production gives this one a "we like it but are not extremely excited about it" final comment.
