This review is from: Legalise It (Audio CD)
I am not primarily a reggae fan, so I can't really talk about the development of the musical style, or where an album like this stands in reggae history.
However, I can say that it has a fantastic feel to it. The album, as the title suggests, raises issues to do with the legalisation of Gange. But despite its strong political overtones, it remains a fun and easy album to listen to.
The opening track has a wonderful synth part in the background, that only reggae records ever seem to possess. No hint of electronics, but a natural feel. I could go on and pick the best tracks, but I think I'd probably ending up saying them all, with the possible exception of the 3rd, as it has a cheesy synth part that seems out of place.
I suppose to any reggae fans better versed than I, all that can be said is that this is a valuable addition to a collection. For Marley fans looking for a little something extra, you could do a lot worse than this.
