Dope not typical Marley Reggae
By Elijah_D _One
This sounds like something Sean Paul would do outside a couple of traditional Marley songs..Not typical Reggae Marley album and I'm a big fan of all the Marleys and support them I just wish Stephen would stick to a contemporary Reggae album like Mind Control which is a classic. This for sure isn't close to Revelation part one but a nice take on dancehall, Reggae, hip hop..Too many features just doesn't sound like a Stephen Marley Album more of a compilation.
Great songs, great album, great family
What is wrong with people? There's over 21 songs on this album. 1 has Waka Flocka as a feature (who is now a vegan) among others. It's a great album, a little bit of the old infused with a little bit of the new. Bob would NOT be disgusted. His sons are musical geniuses IN A DIFFERENT TIME who are keeping his name and legacy alive. Great album! And me a real jamaican so seh sumn no
Represented the Marley legacy right!!!!!
Superb production,tight collabo's, profound lyrics, ⚡️LIVITY⚡️, I would say album of the year as well. Quality product, relevant, real, raw! Represent Ragga!!!
No No No No for the HipHop And R&B section
Up to all the reggae songs... Ghetto Boys....
Great album...great colabos 👍🏽
Music is Alive
Love the mix
The fruit of life!

We all know the reggae side of Stephen. That was the concept of revelation pt. 1. Revelation pt 2 is to show where the music has evolved from the times of roots reggae. If u listen to radio today, ur hearing more reggae/dancehall influences than any music out right now. Steve even said it was going to have elements hip hop jazz r+b, blues. And if u strip all these songs down they all have roots element as in they originated from the root of life! That is the concept of this latest album. If u were expectin roots reggae on this album, then u haven't really been following Stephen Marley in last 4-5 years cuz this is what he told us to expect on this album. Stephen really showed his talents on this latest lp! Don't give a whack review if uve only listened to this album once thru, and if some disliked it that much then I doubt they bothered to listen thru the entire album. If u love hiphop, reggae, soul, r+b, this is album of the year! Thank u Stephen! Wake the dead from their graves! *****! Rasta live!
Grammy album of the year
At 1st is was a little taken back with the Ft on this album but after listening to the lyrics I'm very impressed it reminds me of the Chat Down Babylon, I love it .. For the person that said Bob would be disappointed didn't understand Bob's music one of his goals was to reach the young Africans is America
Based on Revelation Part I, this is what I expected.
I've read through a lot of the reviews here as well as other places and I am not surprised to see nothing in the middle - it really is a love - hate collection of recordings.
Yes - too much rap, r&b, synthesized vocals, etc. for what I like in the reggae genre. Many songs I could imagine being played on the radio because they simply aren't reggae. But, I will say those tracks show just how talented Stephen is - so I can certainly appreciate and respect that about him and his decision to put that stuff on this album.
The two reggae tracks that ARE on here are sick. I love So Unjust - yes it breaks into a rap but it holds more ture to roots reggae than anything else on this album. There is a lot to like about Rockstone - its almost impossible to sit still when that bass drops.
There are other tracks that have a slower tempo and although they dont carry a true reggae beat, they give you enough of a connection to appreciate them.
As my rating shows, I am torn. I am a roots reggae guy - so alot of this album is too strong, aggressive, or just simply not reggae as I define it. But, there is alot to appreciate in what Stephen has done with those particular tracks. I didn't like the album when I listened to it for the first time - but then I remembered this is NOT Revelation Part I - The Roots of Life, where everything I wanted from a Marley was more than satisified. This is Revelation Part II - The Fruits of Life, so you're going to get a modern day twist of a liberated artist who wanted to go out and do something different. His talent is undeniable. In the end, I hope this is Stephen just "soiling his oats" and that he returns to what he did on Revelation Part I and Mind Control when he releases his next album.
