CD Reviews

A top five album
Robert Stoll | Chicago, IL USA | 01/27/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Ever purchase an album, listen to it, and get totally blown away? For anyone exploring roots reggae, this is an absolute must album. Marcus Garvey embodies everything that roots reggae represents: great beats and powerful lyrics. Buring Spear created many fine albums, but this one is a statement. This is one of my top five albums of all time - no matter the genre.

I would also suggest The Congos "Heart of the Congos" as another must-have roots album. One of producer Lee "Scratch" Perry's finest works."
An Album
Mike Rhakabit | Long beach | 05/19/2006

"That's how to describe this. An Album. In an era where lowest common denominator junk gets played on the radio, and anyone can review any piece of garbage on Amazon, giving it 4 or 5 stars when it deserves 1 or 2, this is a great change. Granted it's some 30 years old, but it's still as relevant today as it was when it was released, which is just one of the great things about it. This is the definition of an album in which the sum is greater than the parts. Thankfully, far greater. As individual songs, the 2 chord deals doesn't work out real well. They seem boring, repetitive, etc. However, when you listen to it from start to finish, they flow together, and blow you away. From start to finish, you feel revitalised, like you just learned a new life lesson, that maybe in the end, it truly is feeling that counts, and that is the essence of great music."

"Listen for the drumming provided to you by Horsemouse. His "riddims" are far more superior to most during this time frame. Adding the traditional live recording vibe with accompanying lyrics by Burning Spear. Any reggae savvy listener can sit back and enjoy this album."
