I have not once heard a concept album this meaningful and far ahead of its competitors. As you may know this is another project headed by Dan The Automator and Del Tha Funkee Homosapien. Del takes care of the lyrics and concept of the album while DTA makes most beats and atmospheres. Each tracks flows impressively to the next almost to the point that you would not want to listen to only part of the album.

The lyrics throughout this album are its high point. Its the story of Deltron Zero's battle against a totalitarian government and large corporations. During this journey he is also fighting for the Galactic Rhyme Federation Champion title. This is all obviously taking place in the year 3030 and reflect what our world may become if people do not stand up and do something about it. Now don't get me wrong, this is not just somehting to listen to for the right message and some moving material but also contains a great (as usual from Del) flow and even more incredible beats, samples.

Dan the Automator has done probably his best job to date creating a otherworldly futuristic feel to the beats and samples. Each track probably uses 30 different clips or sound effects to create a scene around the lyrics. If your just sitting down quickly to listen to a song or two this is probably not the album you should be listening to. I wont recommend any individual tracks because I really believe it should be heard as one. Anyone into hip hop or that likes everything DTA or Del has created should most definitely give this a lesson, as it will not disappoint.

I don't usually listen to rap, but some of these songs were quiet good. I enjoyed 3030, Things You Can Do, Virus and Love Story the most.

Catchy stuff! I'm not a hip-hop fan either, but I have a weak spot for concept albums and this one sounded interesting XP I gave the album a listen and it was pretty good :P

There are a few tracks on this album that I usually skip; some sound borderline retarded ("Things You Can Do") but other than that it's a brilliant album and the title song may be my favorite rap song ever. Good call. I was waiting for something I really liked.

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.

Good choice there, worth having for One Love alone. I wouldn't quite put it in with my favourite roots albums, but it's nice to see some good reggae making your list
