5.0 out of 5 stars 100% CLASSIC. The Wailers in outstanding form, again.,
By A Customer
This is the last album by the Wailers that featured Pete Tosh and Bunny Wailer, but what an album to bow out with. This album contains a number of songs that most people will have heard and are guranteed classics such as Get Up, Stand Up and I Shot The Sheriff. But there are other songs on here that also match these well known songs. Burnin' and Lootin' is one of my all time favourite songs and Rastaman Chant is also excellent. I think this album shows again the outstanding quality of the rhythm section of the Wailers. With Carlton Barrett on drums and his brother Aston Barrett on bass, some of the percussion and basslines are awesome. I would rate them as the best rhythm section ever. The album also contains 3 bonus tracks that are very good, especially No Sympathy. Other standout songs on this album would be the upbeat Hallelujah Time, Small Axe and Duppy Conqueror, but there isn't a song here that needs to be skipped. This is a definite classic album.

5.0 out of 5 stars a legendary album form the true legend,
i dont know why i didnt write a review and what can i say
this is an album that i cant stop playing and i have every release since the 80s tapes
what you get is every song that made people feel what others are going through
and they are still relative to our world today with all the wars and pain thats still going on
if you want to have an album that im 100% sure that you will cherish - you have to buy this then sit and enjoy it you will never regret it the only thing that you will regret is not having this album and i'm a metal head but when i play this cd i really feel every word in it which usually never happens with any genre of music other then rock n metal

4.0 out of 5 stars A big Marley fan says...,
Bob Marley died long before I was born, but thanks to my parents I was introduced to his music. As a young woman he has inspired, captivated and uplifted me. Burnin' is just ANOTHER one of his many masterpieces along with the Wailers. As I write this I am rocking to another of his tunes Sun Is Shining...He is simply amazing! His talents are clearly limitless...But look, as you can probably tell, I can go on about his music all day, but the main thing is that you should add Burnin' to YOUR music collection. It won't disappoint you. It includes a few of the classics, but also has an underground favourite- Rastaman Chant. It's certainly worth it. Buying Burnin' will ensure you receive Marley's smooth, yet heartfelt voice, as well as the Wailers backing and flawless input. There is no downside, don't deprive yourself of the Marley music experience... BUY IT!!!
4.0 out of 5 stars ace,

4.0 out of 5 stars Their best (like all the others),
Rather like the Beatles, Bob Marley's best album is whichever one you happen to be listening to. Burnin' was the second album Bob Marley made for Chris Blackwell's Island label which, like the first, came out in 1973. It's a well named album as it is incendiary from start to finish with both he and Peter Tosh at their most revolutionary. They were at home playing much of the material as they had previously recorded several of the songs in versions produced in recent years by Lee Perry, so the performances were relaxed, assured and deadly
