Album Review

Winston Rodney embraces the pastoral much the same way he renounces slavery and oppression. Too bad this album still falls short of the remarkable Marcus Garvey. Producer Jack Ruby can't be blamed; the musical backing provided by the Black Disciples will thrill fans of the roots reggae sound. And the man in question's hypnotic chants are no less hypnotic or inspired. But idyllic recollections of anybody's upbringing are destined to lack a certain prophetic weight. Radicalism and protest are what many listeners have come to expect from Burning Spear. And it's only these selfish expectations that miss the mark.

Customer Reviews

Roots like no other

"Man in the hills" is matched only by "Catch a fire" in Reggae music's recorded history.The compositions are way ahead of their time yet you can hear the influence of ancient chants and instrumentations.Not even Robert Marley himself could sing so deep or with such soul.It is a righteous masterpiece that describes the realities of ecological destruction, the poaching of wildlife, colonization and the sacredness of family.Play this album very loud for it will move you among the masses.
