EDITORS’ NOTES

An unimpeachable monument to the reggae pioneer, this posthumous 1984 collection of Robert Nesta Marley’s most enduring tracks easily lives up to its grand title. And this is a best of in every sense. From blissed-out reimaginings of rock (“Stir It Up”, “Buffalo Soldier”) to politicized skankfests (“Exodus”, “Get Up, Stand Up”), Legend has the cohesive flow of a studio album and distills an artist—and a genre—into one irresistible groove.
