Album Review

Coming five years after the rootsy Revelation, Pt. 1: The Root of Life, Stephen Marley's 2016 LP Revelation, Pt. 2: The Fruit of Life is a more electronic and studio-driven effort, which in the case of this artist/studio whiz kid, is a plus. Instead of Capleton and the Cast of Fela, the guest artists here are primarily from dancehall and hip-hop, the latter being well represented by Waka Flocka, an MC who's a surprising asset on the sure declaration of self, "Scars on My Feet." Waka returns later for the aptly titled "Tonight (It's a Party)" that also adds DJ Khaled and Iggy Azalea to the mix, but if seeing the names Busta Rhymes and Konshens together on one cut suggests another club track, "Pleasure or Pain" is both an utterly serene love song and a chilled-out highlight. This weighty effort is also deep from the start as "Babylon," featuring Junior Reid and Dead Prez, "Revelation Party" featuring Jo Mersa Marley, plus "So Unjust," featuring Rakim and Kardinal Offishall, are all compelling revolution songs that follow the album's epic intro. Odd that Nina Simone's name has fallen off "Father of the Man," as early versions of the single listed her next to Wyclef Jean as a "featured" artist, but the song is sincere and beautiful, as is the Rick Ross feature "The Lion Roars." Stephen's production is compelling, elaborate, daring, and yet tasteful throughout, while his lyrics — like his brother Damian's — offer plenty to savor once all the sonic brilliance has sunk in. File this massive effort next to Damian's Welcome to Jamrock, Stephen's own diverse 2007 release Mind Control, and maybe even Dad's 1976 "Roots, Rock, Reggae" breakthrough, Rastaman Vibration.

Customer Reviews

Bad Mind!!! The Album is Babylon. Burn down, Marleys all have gone Babylon

How does a so called Rasta do songs with Rick Ross and Waka Flaka. Promoting money and fame. Stephen Marley and all of the Marleys have turned to Babylon. They Could be promoting rasta teachings of peace and livity with other Jamaican real rasta artists. Rude bwoy wanna be's.. Bob Marley would be Dissapointed. Fiyah burn the Marleys and their wickedness.

Love

Been waiting for this one, I'm pre ordered and ready to go.

See you in Austin!

Also to the 1 star review. You do not get to condemn the evils of Babylon while using a magical piece of glass that connects to the Internet to post a review on iTunes. You are adorable. One love!

Where's the reggae?

It rap and R&B crap. Bob Marley would be disgusted
