This was released in 1983 2 years after Bob Marley's death. It was the ending to the trilogy of albums that began in 1979 with Survival. That album is an absolute classic as is it's follow up Uprising. In comparision to those two and the rest of their back catalogue this is a bit of a disappointment, but that is only because of the extremely high standards that The Wailers reached throughout their illustrious career. There are some excellent songs here but the majority of the album just doesn't quite have that same feel that their best work does. The melodies aren't quite as memorable, the lyrics not as good as before. The music is still enjoyableand there are flashes of brilliance which make it worth purchasing if you're already a fan, but I certainly wouldn't recommend starting your collection here. As a big fan of The Wailers only awarding 3 stars almost makes me feel traitorous but as I awarded Natty Dread 4 stars and would consider that a better album than this, 3 stars is the right score. I believe that had Bob still been alive, more work would've been done on this album to bring it up to standard. He ws incredibly driven and focused and would drill his fellow bandmates mercilessly to get the sound and quality that he wanted. Confrontation includes the popular hit Buffalo Soldier which is one of the obvious highlights but personally I prefer Mix Up, Mix Up and I Know. I love the intro for Mix Up, Mix Up. The drums start, followed byt he keyboards and then Bob's voice "Oh Lord, Oh Lord, Oh Lord yeah..". It has that same feel good vibe that Easy Skanking and Kaya had and it never fails to bring a smile to my face. So overall a good album, but not the classic that this trilogy of albums deserved.

What can I say? This is one of my all time favourite albums by my Beloved brother, Bob. Gone but can never be forgotten. I had this album before, lent it to someone and never saw it again so I had to have this as was such a bargain. Play these songs in my car on almost every journey. Many thanks.

As all albums recorded by Bob Marley with Island Records this one sounds excellent. Remastered version is a little better than previous one.
Buffalo Soldier is the killer song in this album, followed by Trench Town and Stiff Necked Fools.

Fed up with compiliations husband was keen to hear all the Bob Marley albums in the right order. Have been slowly buying these for him. This one had a particularly good selection of songs.

In Confrontation Bob opens his heart and expresses his feelings in the way he never did in Exodus and even Uprising. I love all Bob's albums and hold no grudge over the more politically correct Exodus getting all the plaudits. But Confrontation is Marley pristine.
