Default Exodus - Bob Marley and the Wailers


Bob Marley and the Wailers : Exodus
Released in 1977 by Tuff Gong

1. "Natural Mystic" – 3:28
2. "So Much Things to Say" – 3:08
3. "Guiltiness" – 3:19
4. "The Heathen" – 2:32
5. "Exodus" – 7:39
6. "Jamming" – 3:31
7. "Waiting in Vain" – 4:15
8. "Turn Your Lights Down Low" – 3:39
9. "Three Little Birds" – 3:00
10. "One Love/People Get Ready" – 2:53



Quite possibly the best roots reggae album ever to be released. Filled with the classics that everyone who is anything has listened to. Jammin, Exodus, Waiting In Vain, Turn Your Lights Down Low, Natural Mystic, and basically the rest of the album. If you do not enjoy listening to this album then I can only assume reggae is not for you, because this is the pinnacle of a musical genre; a focal point at which most musicions strive towards.

If life leaves me down or in a bad mood, this album along with his 10-15 or so other albums have always been able to quickly change that. Sure, he may live in an idealistic world hat was never meant to be, but you can not help waling away from it with a positive message.

The Wailers really show throughout this album. Sure it would have still been great without them, but it adds much more diversity to the vocals. If you enjoy this album (I dont know of anyone who doesnt) then definitely check out some albums by the other members of the Wailers including Peter Tosh, Junior Marvin, Bunny Wailer, and quite a few other members that were in and out of the group. Of coarse do not limit yourself to Marley and friends when listening to this genre, there is PLENTY of great roots reggae to last anyone a lifetime.

I have to admit that although I'm a huge Reggae fan, Marley is quite low down on my list but the title track is fantastic. Best roots Reggae album? For me , it's not but it's a strong album for sure.

Its hard for me to really pick a favorite Marley album though, Im a big Kayaand Catch a Fire fan also.

Lately though Iv been listening to a lot of Israel Vibration and 10 Ft Ganja Plant.

That's pretty much exactly what I was gonna say.

It's still a great album though (even if Peter Tosh is my favourite Wailer) - Natural Mystic, the title track and One Love are probably my personal favourites off it.

I think it's [lace is somewhere between where Rezz put it and where Jackhammer and Bulldog contend it fits. It's either his best or second best album(Catch a Fire), and while there is certainly better Reggae music, it's usually the first one that fringe fans find and thus plays a more prolific and significant role in the preservation of the genre. The greatest case for my cause is in the near objectivity of a significance argument versus the subjective nature of a quality of music argument.

Good choice for a review Rezz

If you're posting in the music forums make sure to be thoughtful and expressive, if you're posting in the lounge ask yourself "is this something that adds to the conversation?" It's important to remember that a lot of people use each thread. You're probably not as funny or clever as you think, I know I'm not.
