5.0 out of 5 stars Mr Marley gets a tad soulful on this one, 3 Aug. 2012
This review is from: Kaya (Audio CD)
1978 album, it was in my view one of his last decent output albums. A friend was a big fan of "Exodus". He would dance to it like a pair of sledgehammers going in different directions simultaneously. I allways thought of "Exodus" as Mr Marley's stadium album. Dan Dare's dancing just confirmed it. I picked this (Kaya) up in a market without a cover. It is more personal. Some bluesy reggae songs with crooning vocal (Crisis and Running Away) make this a worthwhile purchase. Although not on the frequent play list but definately outside of the best of territory (except for "Is this Love"). There were some nice individual tracks subsequent to Kaya, but albums after this tended to have a bit too much filler for my liking. But gotta love the man. I am pleased Mr Marley graced this planet and laid down some memorable music. I have drunk deeply of his output and it is sustaining for the mind and soul. Kaya stands tall. There is some very good, understated but well executed lead guitar. Some good, if not patchy lyrics. There is the bouncey, thrashed to death "Is this Love". But as stated earlier, it has some other humdinger tracks in "She's Gone" and "Running Away". Add "Crisis" and you have a distinct sense Mr Marley-loverman might of taken a bit of a burning leading to the composition of some of these tracks. it also has "Sun is shining", there is a good cover of this by Black Uhuru on reggae compilations, and it is good to match it alongside the original. Kaya is well worth a listen and with parting with a bit of brass to add to the shelf.
