The Life To Live instrumental is more R&B than reggae, employing hip hop-style drums and basic piano chord progression with a splash of electric guitar for emotional effect. Ice Cold’s titular tune probably best utilizes the urban lean of the riddim, attacking it with an aggressive double-time rhyme pattern and hip hop swagger. Like most of the versions from the release, Ice Cold’s Life To Live has a conscious vibe to the lyrics, but a few artists decided to take their tracks in a sexier direction. Such is the case for Jah Vinci’s Something New, a raunchy tune that stands out as the most explicit on the juggling, as well as for being a quality version from one of dancehall’s hardest working, most original singers. Do The Maths by Exco Levi, who is also based out of Canada, is another high point for Life To Live and possibly for the artist as well, as he deftly wields his math metaphor through the verses, culminating in a repetitive hook that will revisit the listener hours after hearing the tune. The lyrical singjay, 3 Star, may have contributed the best tune on the album, Secret Fight, in which he describes how some of the people closest to him have designs on his downfall.
