My God, I have neglected this genre. I know this is a bit of a vague thing to ask, but can anyone post some great reggae music that just blows you away? I still have that idiotic mentality that reggae sounds too similar. Someone please prove my stupid brain wrong.

(By the way, this is my first post in the Reggae/Ska forum )

Not everyones cup of Earl Grey, but I like em :

Tapper Zukie ~ She Want A Phensic - YouTube

U Roy - Natty Rebel/Soul Rebel - YouTube

An absolute classic

The only version worth listening to :

Great dub at the end

Yeah try real big fish, but I would agree that street light are unique with in the genre. You should also check out New Groove Formation they take the old style and bring it up to date. I caught them in London with Neville Staples excellent live band. A couple of ladies on the horns as well which was nice to see.
