Very big yes from me. The gateway into reggae music, inspired and soulful.

Sure, why not. Overrated as hell, and he's spawned a ton of garbage, but come on brah it's Bob Marley.

Seriously though, his earlier stuff with the Wailers is awesome, as is Uprising and who hasn't had that phase when they listened to Legend on repeat?

Yes from me.

He might overshadow a lot of other reggae, but Bob is still the bomb. Yes.

You don't like Bob, you don't like Elvis, in fact I never seen you make a positive post for just about any band or artist. I never knew why, but it dawned on me. It's so obvious you come from Sweden and no artist/band can compare to ABBA!?

Hmm?

ABBA is the single worst abomination this country has ever produced.

I've made many positive comments about bands in this thread, you're not very observant, are you?
