3.0 out of 5 stars Not the strongest set of songs from Jr Gong 15 Feb 2010
By AndyK
Format:Audio CD
While this album will satisfy most ardent fans of "Jr Gong", it's not perhaps the best selection that showcases his talents.

The overall sound I would say comes across as juvenile. This is partly due to the high-pitched and less powerful sound with which Damian delivers his toasting vocals. The backing tracks are a little insubstantial also, which leaves the sound really loose. It also sounds a great deal like most Dancehall Reggae, which is not what the "Jr Gong" really stands for. His later albums have a strong individual mark and really push the genre of Roots Reggae and Dancehall beyond their previous limits. This album is clearly laid within those old boundaries.

A couple of Bob Marley covers brighten up the album as do guest appearances from Stephen Marley, who is almost the ever-present backup to Damian on his albums to date.

Still, songs such as "Love and Unity" and "Old War Chant" have aspects which show how Damian would progress in later albums into the mature, outspoken voice of the people that he has become.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 30 Nov 2006
Format:Audio CD
An amazing first album, as soon as I heard Jam Rock I had to get all Damians Albums. This one did not disappoint, Old War Chant, Me Name Jr Gong, just to name a couple are fantastic but so is the whole Album.

Get a copy, if you can.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing debut 24 May 2008
Format:Audio CD
I was not expecting this. I first hear Damien Halfway Tree album then Jamrock now everyone know Welcome to Jamrock is a masterpiece,and Halfway Tree is the obvious blue print for it. So i did have to get this Ist album having got a couple of Mp3s of tracks from it. just the import price put me off a bit, finally got it thoughand man me glad i did. THIS IS AN ABSOLUTE CLASSIC in its own right. ok so Damien re worked a couple of his fathers tunes here but hey he got the right and he made an excellent job of it check out the track One more cup of coffe. it has got to be released for the summer dance crowds it just so catchy words and tune you can just see all the girls dancing to this. it is a fun album allthough there are at times very powerfull lyrics to some of the songs it still remains a good time posotive feel fun album. Ragga muffin Mr Marley in the Hall of Fame Buy now

5.0 out of 5 stars Damian Marley's first album and ode to his father. 3 Nov 2005
By M. Imbrie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The title of Mr. Marley is truly the correct one. Many tracks contain the lyrics of Bob Marley, sung by Bob's son and Damian's half-brother Stephen. Damian toasts his way through an array of roots, and sometimes almost hip hop influenced reggae. This was a Marley production, and there's plenty of Marley influence. Some beats come from the days when Damian had seen his big brother Ziggy, and his band The Melody Makers (contained Cedella Marley, Bob's daughter), others are complete creations by Stephen "Raggamuffin" Marley, who has produced not only Damian's album, but "Chant Down Babylon", a Bob Marley album containing many of hip hops largest name. The Marley Brothers truly start to develop the type of music you hear later in "Halfway Tree" and "Welcome To Jamrock". It sounds nothing like "Welcome to Jamrock" for the most part, but is essential to understand the path Damian took to get to where he is musically at with his lyrics and stephen's producing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Huge fan of Jr. Gong Finally Gets His Wish 18 April 2008
By Obadiah Crowley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been trying to get a copy of this record for a few years now. I was stoked when I saw it available through Amazon a few weeks back and I can say that any Jr. Gong fan should snap it up pronto. It has numerous tracks from his dad's records that have some new innovations and lyrics and it all is done masterfully. It is surprising that Jr. Gong has only put two other records besides this one and numerous singles. If you are trying to find other stuff he has worked on you should get Stephen Marley's latest and I also highly recommend the record "Red Star Sounds Presents Def Jamiaca" which is an awesome mix of hip-hop and reggae.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mr. Marley by Damian Marley 6 Sep 2002
By Debbie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD was bought for me by a dear friend. I should've kissed him for acknowledging how much I adore Jr. Gong. Many good songs are on this CD. He includes one of Bob's songs "One More Cup of Coffee" which captures the rootsie style of his dad. For being an early CD for Damian I thought it was great!! Mr. Marley's a classic! If you love Bob, this is a CD you must get. Damian is my favorite performer of all his children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best CD I own 14 April 2006
By Gillian Doyle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Thank you Bob, as if the legacy of his music was not enough, his greatest legacy is his Children. Zig Zag, Ragamuff, Ju Ju, and Ky-mani, have continued to carry the troch admirably. This CD is an absolute must own, Jr. is fast becoming the best Reggae artist around, and this CD really sticks to his roots while adding some great beats and lyrics, Raga Muff and Jr. are a deadly combo, and they absolutely rock this CD out, Kingston 12, One More Cup of Coffee, Trouble, are Great tribute to their Dad. Makes me want to have children, Bob must be in heaven with a smile ear to ear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marley magic continues with the "youngest veteran" ONE LOVE 28 Mar 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This cd is just a continuation of the magic first created by H.I.M. and passed down through the Marley family. If you have never heard any Marley family music, this is a good place to start
