Album Review

"Revelation," the single from Abijah's self-titled album, was a big hit in Jamaica and established Abijah as a roots reggae singer/songwriter to watch. Comparisons to Bob Marley inevitably followed, but the next album took five years to materialize. That album, Moving 2 the Top, got off to a good start when it won an ARTISTdirect contest in 2007 that awarded Abijah with a full-scale promotional package. Moving 2 the Top shows Abijah in many different musical environments, from roots reggae ("State of Emergency," "No More War") and dancehall-rap to glossy urban pop and acoustic ballads. Tevin Campbell guests on "Overcome," and Beenie Man appears on a new remix of "Revelation." The album, at nearly 80 minutes long, contains as much music as will fit on a CD, including a live track, the aforementioned remix, a Bob Marley cover, and a remake of Dion's hit "Abraham, Martin and John" (entitled "Tribute") with all the references changed to figures such as Marley and Marcus Garvey. It isn't traditional reggae by any stretch — Abijah toys with styles and unusual arrangements, not all of which work; even his vocal technique varies from track to track. As a result, Moving 2 the Top often sounds more like an audio résumé than an album, demonstrating Abijah's abilities in a wide variety of settings.

Customer Reviews

solid new album from Abijah

Nice to see Abijah's 2nd album come forward. Great compilation of his singles. How 'bout that remix of Revelation! There's a lot of variety here, from heavy roots anthems to more uptempo stuff. Definitely worth checking!
