Among the standout entries are the Damian Marley-produced Third World album, More Work To Be Done and Rapture EP by 19-year-old reggae sensation Koffee.
Manchester reggae band Steel Pulse's first album in 15 years Mass Manipulation is also a considered a hit.
Minister Marion Hall's album was sent to the gospel category.
