iTunes Review

Ziggy Marley’s first album without the Melody Makers offers him the opportunity to outstep not only the legacy of his father, but the boundaries of reggae itself. Working in close collaboration with R.E.M. producer Scott Litt and a host of guest musicians (including guitarist David Lindley, and Flea and John Frusciante from the Red Hot Chili Peppers), Marley uses Dragonfly to pursue a range of musical backdrops. “Melancholy Mood” is slow-burning soul, while “I Get Out” features a barrage of guitar straight out of Nirvana. “In the Name of God” has the monumental, climaxing pulse of a U2 song, and its bold refrain refuses to be overlooked: “All religion should be wiped out / Save the people stand and live / What divides us is an illusion / Made up by men in their confusion.” “True to Myself” and “Good Old Days” sound nothing like the reggae anthems for which Marley is famous, but they nonetheless feel like the most appealing and engaging songs of his career. On the whole Dragonfly has an organic, acoustical flavor, and its easygoing tone obscures the fact that this is Marley’s most daring album to date.

Customer Reviews

best album ive heard in a while

This album is amazing! is doesn't even sound like reggae. Ziggy's style is truely his own and this album is funky and jazzy. i reccommend it for anyone who likes good music.

Great Album

Even though I just recently got intersted in reggae, I have heard most of the greats like Peter Tosh, Burning Spear, and Ziggy's dad,Bob Marley. I have heard all of Ziggy's albums so far and I have to say that this one is the best because it sound like true reggae in Ziggy's own style, not the American synthecized stuff that keeps appearing on his other albums. I highly recommend it for all new reggae fans and reggae purists.

Ziggy grows up.

Great album. I found myself playing this soul-edifying album over and over every day during a dark year in my life. "Never Deny You", the Judas berating tune, is so blissfully sweet; "I Get Out", the strength-invoking tune to be oneself without apologies to even those closest to you; "Melancholy Mood", and "DYKL" are my personal favorites from this solid opus. Truely his best album!

The oldest son of reggae legend Bob Marley and his wife Rita, Ziggy Marley was the natural heir to the throne left vacant by his father's untimely death in 1981. Along with backing band the Melody Makers, a unit comprised of his brothers and sisters, he successfully carried on the tradition of communicating the music's message to a growing global audience, even scoring a U.S. Top 40 single in the process — a claim neither of his parents could make.
